Classic Christmas decorations are timeless and add a charming touch to your front door. In this article, we’ll share a few ideas on how you can use them to create a memorable first impression for guests and passers-by.
Artificial wreaths are classic outdoor Christmas décor pieces. You can either leave them on their own or add accents that complement your decorating theme. To create a traditional fruit-and-greenery wreath, add several dried pomegranates or berries. Another option is to attach small photos, Christmas cards, and trinkets for a more personalised theme. If you want to take out the guesswork, choose pre-decorated wreaths so you can spend more time enjoying Christmas.
Red and Green Baubles
Give your classic door décor a winter wonderland feel with frosted Christmas trees and foliage. You can also hang snowflake light fixtures and pair them with white accents for consistency. To complete the look, flock your greenery with pre-made flocking or DIY artificial snow. If you want extra sparkle, consider adding clear LED lights.
Aside from Christmas wreaths, you can also use other types of greenery for your Christmas door decorations.
Swags are long, decorative greenery that you can use in place of wreaths. Like garlands, swags can feature a wide range of materials, including evergreen trimmings, holly, and pinecones. Another way is to add accents like seasonal flowers, ribbons, and berries.
Add some sparkle to your classic door with Christmas lights. Use them to outline the frame of the door or create a border around the door itself. You can also use them to highlight other decorations such as wreaths, garlands, and other greenery. Another option is to hang LED light wreaths and garlands for a bolder approach.
