A beautifully adorned front door sets the tone for the rest of your Christmas décor. After all, it’s the first thing your guests will see before they enter your home. From the wreaths and garlands to the lights and accents, the pieces you choose give a glimpse of your style. In this article, we’ll explore different Christmas door decorations to try this season.
A Fresh Take on Tradition
Bring a natural touch to the classic red-and-green theme. Berries, twigs, and pinecones add texture and pops of colour to your greenery, while bright, red bows make your front door décor extra festive. Hang matching wreaths and garlands, then complete the look with hanging baskets and potted arrangements.
Shimmer and Sparkle
Dazzle guests with an elegant silver and gold theme. The Christmas door wreath will be your focal point, so choose one that echoes the sparkling tones of your display. Metallic baubles reflect light so make sure you have ample lighting with pre-lit potted trees or accents to add extra shimmer.
