This large, leafy garland and matching front door swag is made from evergreen branches, pinecones, berries, apples, magnolia leaves, and festive holiday ribbon. Use it as inspiration for your front door or add your favorite festive elements.
Editor's Tip: Purchase a long evergreen garland to serve as the base, then use floral pins and hot glue to secure embellishments.
Welcome visitors with a petite Christmas tree on your porch and a simple white stocking front door decoration. For the Christmas tree, use strands of white lights and a few well-placed silver ornament balls that can withstand the elements. To make the stocking decoration, simply hot-glue a few white stockings together and hang with a thick silk ribbon.
This festive doorknob wreath is made from scraps of scrapbook paper and cardstock with holiday colors and prints. Cut the pieces with a circle die-cut (found in crafts stores) in various sizes, and glue or tape the circles together in a wreath shape.
Editor's Tip: To make your wreath outdoor-ready, coat it with decoupage medium.
This classic over-the-door garland frames a stuffed stocking to add an interesting touch to a traditional look. Stuff a plain stocking with berries, evergreen, and small pinecones and hang it with ribbon from the middle of the front door. Arrange a simple garland decorated with pinecones around the door frame, and complete the scene with two miniature Christmas trees in matching pots with pinecones at the base.
Greet holiday guests with a festive doorknob decoration made from burlap ribbon, evergreen, and small pinecones. Fold over the top of the burlap ribbon, and then cut a slit through both layers to slide over a doorknob. Attach cork stick-on letters to spell out "Welcome." Finish the arrangement with live greens and pinecones.
Add some fruity flair to your traditional Christmas decorations by using unexpected embellishments. Hang a traditional evergreen wreath on your front door, lean birch logs against the house, and stick with the classic red-and-green color scheme with various plants in pots. For the finishing touch, place pineapples above your door to add tropical flair.
Play up the traditional Christmas red-and-green color scheme with a modern spin. If you have a green door, accent it with an all-red wreath and place your favorite bright red flowers on the front porch. Poinsettias would make this scene particularly festive. Don't have a green door? Play around with other color schemes, such as white and blue (good for lighter doors) or silver and gold (good for darker doors).
To make your front porch pop with color, wrap multiple boxes of different sizes in brightly colored wrapping paper, dress them up with festive bows and place them on either side of your front door in garden planters. A wreath on each door adds welcome cheer to the display.
Editor's Tip: Have blankets ready to toss over the gift-wrap display in case of wet weather, or take them inside on a snowy or rainy day.
