Christmas is a very social holiday. It’s when we exchange gifts, we get together with friends and family and we receive guests. That has plenty to do with the fact that we’re always preoccupied to make our homes look beautiful and welcoming around this holiday. We decorate Christmas trees, we hand garlands and string lights and we also decorate our porches and front doors so everyone knows we’ve embraced the spirit of Christmas. Speaking of front door decorations, check out some of the ideas we prepared for you this year.
Hanging a wreath on the front door is a classic way of decorating the house around holidays but why stop at one wreath when you can hang two? You can combine them into a large snowman-shaped wreath like the one featured on thewhimsicalwife. If you want to craft this, you’ll need two vine wreaths (25 cm respectively 35cm), two battery-operated string light sets, black cardboard or paper, red satin ribbon, white spray paint and some faux foliage.
Decorating a wreath is fun and exciting and it helps to already have some idea of what style you prefer or what sort of ornaments you’d like to use. If you’re using a wreath foam frame, you have of options. You could make a big burlap bow or decorate it with fir tree clippings and berries for a classic touch and you can even add cheerful signs and ornaments. This farmhouse design from thecraftingnook is super charming and should be a good source of inspiration.
If you’re not a big fan of classic wreaths there are plenty of alternatives you can choose from. For example, a simple “wreath” made of springs of faux snowy pine sprigs tied in a bouquet looks pretty awesome. Wrap some twine around the stems and then tie a cute ribbon about the bouquet and hang it upside down on your front door. Check out aprettyfix for more details.
