Make an entrance: inspiration for decorating your front door this Christmas

December 23rd 2022

Deck the door with boughs of holly – or other lovely things.

‘Tis the season for spreading light and joy, and one way of doing so is to decorate your front door.

The doorscaping trend has taken off in recent years thanks to platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest, and more people have been inspired to get creative when it comes to décor on the outside of their homes as well as on the inside.

And what better occasion than Christmas to wow your guests and passers-by?

Get creative by making a wreath

Wreath making has become hugely popular and it’s much easier than you think.

There is bound to be at least one workshop being held in your local area, but you could always check out some tutorials on YouTube if you want to keep costs down.

You can be as creative as you like when it comes to style; some prefer a traditional look, opting for seasonal foliage such as holly and pine cones, while others add colourful baubles and ribbon.

Christmas window decorations

An inexpensive way to get your door ready for Christmas is to decorate any glazing with some stickers.

If your door features glazing panels, why not use them to frame some festive designs, like snowflakes, or mistletoe?

Vinyl stickers and stencils are inexpensive, but you could easily make your own stencils using cardboard, which would be an ideal activity to involve children in.

You could also draw some designs on freehand using chalk paint pens.

Wrap your door in a bow

Add a pop of colour and a touch of elegance to your front door by wrapping a bow around it.

If you’re feeling creative, you could do this freehand but there are kits available to buy online.

Your door will be instantly transformed and provide the ideal luxurious background for photos.

Embellish the door handle

Depending on the style of handle you’ve got on your door, you may want to consider decorating that.

A hanging decoration made from branches and pinecones would be ideal if you wanted to make an effortless statement.

Add a gorgeous garland

A garland looks just as good whether it’s been designed to complement a wreath or featured as a standalone decoration.

Just like a wreath, if looked after properly it would last throughout the festive season and even beyond.

Introduce a festive character

By this we mean breathing life into your front door by turning it into a snowman, penguin or even Santa so he can greet the big guy himself on 25 December!

Take the inside out

If you fancy making a real statement, you could transform your front door into a cosy scene such as a fireplace – by creating an artificial roaring fire and stockings – or make it look like the entrance to something entirely different like an igloo.

Have fun with it

These are just a few of our favourite ideas but there is so much more inspiration to be found online and maybe even outside homes in your local area.

Decorating a front door can provide a lot of fun for all the family and can be the perfect way to get into the festive spirit.
