/ / Tips, Uncategorized

When it comes to Christmas decorating, it’s almost impossible to have too many ideas. In fact, many people change up their Christmas décor on an annual basis. It’s something fun, exciting and gives you plenty of cheer in the cold months of the year. If you’re looking for new ways to liven up your front door for Christmas, here are 20 cute Christmas decoration ideas to try.

  1. Gift-Box Topiary—Grab a footed urn and pile large, wrapped boxes on top. Make sure the boxes are wrapped with big bows and pile them slightly askew for the best effect.
  2. Christmas Door Frames—If you’ve got an old frame that needs new life, this is a great project to try. Paint the frame a new, festive color, and top it with a bow and a coordinating cluster of ornaments. Hang it on your door similarly to a wreath.  
  1. Knitter’s Wreath—Make your door festive and individualistic at the same time with a wreath. One can be   made out of yarn balls and stop with knitting needles.
  2. Your Initials—Create or buy a custom monogram using your family initials. This can be created from wood or another type of material. Top with a bow and your door will look amazing.
  3. Unique Garland—If you’re tired of the typical pine garland, try making one from branches of a tree in your area. Line with lights for an impressive look.
  4. Bright Columns—If you have columns by your door, try wrapping them tightly with lots of lights. Wrap railings and other architectural details for a radiant shimmer.
  5. Surprising Shutters—Try to repurpose architectural elements, such as a large pair of shutters. When given a new coat of paint, they can provide a fresh, festive look.
  6. Modern Greenery—Freshen up a boring door with new wreath made from modern elements such as pheasant feathers and green apples. This simple but edgy combination brightens up your door.
  7. Illuminated Walkway—Try putting simple glass votives lined with sprigs of berries and greenery on your walkway. The candles will help make your entrance more welcoming.
  8. Layered Decorations—Have a plethora of decorations? Try layering them by your door, blending unexpected touches with traditional themes. For example, you could mix bows, greenery and old-fashioned ice skates.
  9. Courtyard Christmas Tree—If you have a covered courtyard, try adding a lighted, decorated Christmas tree. This festive addition will make your entryway festive and more welcoming.
  10. Add Pinecones—Go the rustic route with your garland and add pinecones. They provide a classic, rustic look.
