Home for the Holidays

Deck the halls with these front door decorating ideas to make your entryway merry and bright

Decorating for Christmas brings back happy childhood memories and is a fun-filled family activity. As the holidays near, we are staying at home more than ever without a lot of interactions. Hanging Christmas lights and decorating your front porch is an easy way to spread holiday cheer with the rest of your neighborhood. According to Pinterest, door decor will be especially popular this holiday season with searches for 'Christmas door decorations' up by 125 percent. So, take advantage of this valuable time with your family, turn on some Christmas music, and start decorating!

Woodland Wonderland

Spruce up your porch and have a holly jolly Christmas with fresh garland wrapped around your door and tucked into urn-style planters. The smell of pine will evoke the spirit of Christmas every time you cross the threshold. Accent with colorful berries and make sure to hydrate your greenery using a spray bottle filled with cool water every other day.

Style Tip

Add a warm glow with solar powered lanterns in bronze, silver and wood finishes. Outdoor lanterns can be purchased for as low at $20 at home décor stores.

Country Christmas

Wrap around porches are made for the holidays. Achieve this simple, stylish look with a monochromatic design of calming natural materials and a mix of different textures such as metallics, burlap and wood. Add plenty of seating like this outdoor bench and pile on comfort with cozy throws, flameless candles and lots of pillows.

Style Tip

It’s easy to make these rustic wood stands. Using a hand saw, cut sections of branches to the desired length. Sand with heavy grit sandpaper and then finer grit sandpaper until smooth. Seal with a satin finish polyurethane varnish.

Pretty Poinsettias

For south facing porches, consider a grouping of eye-catching ruby red or candy-cane colored poinsettias. They like the sun and are the favorite holiday decoration, next to the Christmas tree. Water your plants only when the soil is noticeably dry. Remember to keep away from pets as the beautiful red plant can be deadly to your four-legged friends.

Style Tip

Coordinate the look with big red plaid bows on the wreath and garland. Add a rocking chair or a child’s snow sled by the door and your traditional Christmas look is complete.
