The holidays are already here, but there’s still time to dress your door for the season with some simple holiday decorating tips.
Whether your entry is located inside an apartment building hallway or on a charming walkway, your door is the perfect place to reflect your personal taste, your love of the holidays, and your delight for visiting friends. So, let’s take a minute to consider ways to make your entryway special from “hello.”
Make your wreath pop.
A traditional wreath of pine or greenery can look bland against a black or brown door. Give it some pizzazz with a pretty bow, red berries, faux fruit, or colorful ornaments. Another option is to spray-paint a few sprigs of pine or cover some magnolia leaves in gold or silver and weave them into the existing wreath.
Pre-lit, battery-powered wreaths are a good investment to bring out year after year and redress with new decorations. Or, you can trade the greenery in for something new. Wreaths can be made of anything you enjoy — peppermints, tinsel, or paper snowflakes. There are no limits.
For a finishing touch, place a floodlight on your lawn to highlight your door even more. It makes a warm and welcoming statement and ensures your decorations are noticed both near and far.
Think outside the wreath.
Instead of a traditional wreath of greenery, hang up a pair of bells or dangle some cute mittens that your kids have outgrown. Then, fill them with sprigs and berries.
If you’re looking for something like a wreath but with a unique look, take a walk around your yard and clip a few boughs of evergreen or magnolia. Wire them together in a loose bundle, add some pine cones, and adorn with a bow. It’s amazing how mixing a few of Mother Nature’s finest things can make a bold, beautiful statement.
Show guests that their presence is the present. Wrap your door in an enormous bow.
Purchase or craft an extra-large bow from wide, wired ribbon. Run the ribbon horizontally and vertically to mimic a wrapped package. If you’re feeling extra ambitious, wrap the door itself in shiny holiday paper.
Be ready for next year.
