It’s finally here – time to decorate your front door (and the rest of your home) for the winter holidays! Many people look forward to holiday decorating just as much as the presents, candy canes and hot chocolate, and with guests dropping by throughout the season, you’ll want your exterior front doors to look their best. So sweep away those fall leaves and spruce up your doors with some holiday cheer. Start here for some inspiration!
Jolly Holiday Basket
For an interesting but not-too-unusual departure from the traditional holiday wreath, try a winter basket arrangement like this one filled with greenery and contrasting white ornamental springs. Greenery and holly berries also make a simple but beautiful dressing for any door.
Stocking Hung with Care
Christmas stockings don’t have to be limited to the mantel. Stuffed with pine sprigs and holly, a stocking brings the warmth of the indoors outside.
Pinecones & Lanterns
Make the entry door the focal point with a pinecone garland accented with red. Cozy lanterns add a welcoming touch to the bold statement. This arrangement is also a festive way to decorate sliding patio doors without obstructing the view from inside.
If holiday red doesn’t complement the exterior of your home, try this palette featuring cool blues and shiny silver to make your porch sparkle. Once the snow falls, you’ll have your own personal scene from a winter wonderland.
Decked in Silver & Gold
Add some sparkly metallic elements to give your front door a little bit of glam. Purchase a silver wreath, or paint a grapevine wreath using metallic spray. When contrasted with a background of white and green, you have an effect that’s pure holiday decorating magic.
