If you would rather concentrate on a small area to decorate for the holidays, consider decorating your front door. This allows you to still bring some festive cheer to your front porch without having to decorate the whole area.
There are many things you can do that go far beyond just a traditional wreath. In this blog, we’ll explore five fun and festive front door ideas!
Monograms are a great way to create a custom look for your front door. You can find a local maker who will make your family monogram out of wood and then you can hang it on your door with pride.
To make it a bit more holiday-themed, you can incorporate some ribbon and small ornaments in festive colours. Then, once the holidays are over, you can remove the extras and have a cute décor piece for your front door no matter which season it is.
- Picture Frame
If you have an old large-sized picture frame hanging around, you can transform it into a festive holiday decoration for your front door. If you don’t have a frame, there are so many different ones to choose from at the thrift store that you can purchase for cheap.
Then, paint the frame a fun colour that goes beyond red and green (think blue or yellow) and then attach a ribbon and some colourful ornaments to the top.
- Paint Your Front Door
Maybe you’ve been thinking about changing up the colour of your front door for some time. The holidays are a great time to do this. Think bright festive colours like bright red or green. Top that with a wreath and you have some simple and affordable holiday décor.
Once the holidays are over, remove the wreath and you have a fun front door all year round.
- Yarn Wreath
Have you ever heard of a yarn wreath before? This whimsical take on your traditional holiday wreath pays homage to your favourite hobby (if you’re into knitting) or just adds some fun, outside the box, décor to your front door.
You can opt for Christmas colours or keep it muted by using more natural tones.
For this DIY project, make balls of yarn and attach them in a circle pattern. You can even incorporate the knitting needles sticking out of a few of the balls. This is such a fun idea!
Another fun way to spice up your front door is to incorporate a fun doormat. There are so many of these to choose from at big-box stores, online, and from custom Etsy shops.
From ones adorned with reindeers to ones with fun holiday sayings, there are so many to choose from. You can even switch it out year after year. A fun mat will go a long way in adding some festivity to your front door without breaking the bank or requiring too much effort.
