Holiday Front Door Decorating Ideas

by Karianne WoodDecember 18, 2014

Hello. Salut. Ciao. Ahoj. What is your front door saying? Warm and welcome, and nice to meet you translate into any language. Looking to greet your guests in style this holiday season?

Here’s a few ideas and inspiration to get you started.

1. Add rustic elements

This door featured from the Southern Living Idea Home is created from natural elements. Create swags of pine cones and burlap and ever greens. Then tuck burlap ribbon into the arrangements to finish the look with a little rustic glamour.

2. Add a monogram

Nothing says welcome like a brightly colored wreath featuring a simple wood monogram. This three-letter monogram is made from light weight wood and painted with a gray finish. Create your own from chip board or easy-to-cut balsa wood.

3. Frame it

Replace the wreath on your door with a ornate frame filled with scrapbook paper. You can change out the paper depending on the season. Print a quote on the paper or add a single-letter monogram to complete your festive door decor.

4. Add fresh greens

Front door decor doesn’t have to be expensive. Sometimes it’s as simple as filling the containers by the front door with greenery from the yard. Here freshly cut cedar trees and magnolia branches create a welcoming front door with the sights and familiar smells of the season.
Welcome your guests in style this holiday. Whether it’s greenery or adding a frame or wreath or rustic charm, creating a welcoming front door is as simple as 1, 2, 3, 4.
