With the holidays coming up, there’s no better time than now to plan out a festive way to decorate your home. Your entry doors are the perfect way to greet guests, including family and friends, and even carolers. Beyond the simple wreath, there are a number of ways to decorate your home’s windows and doors and we’ve got a few unique ideas to liven up your entryway this winter.
Make your entry doors look like a gift
Use festive ribbons to make this holiday look come alive. No matter what colour your entry doors are, fasten thick, glittering or metallic ribbon down the centre of your door, both vertically and horizontally. At the centre where they meet, use a large bow to give your door the look of a holiday gift!
Turn your door into Frosty the Snowman
This works particularly well if you have a white door. Tack two black eyes onto the door, an orange triangle for a nose, and more black circles for a mouth. At the top of your door frame, craft a top-hat out of cardboard boxes painted black and trimmed to size, then wrapped in clear packing tape to prevent weather damage. This is especially a fun one if you have kids who love the movie Frozen.
Use multiple wreaths
One wreath looks great, but multiple wreaths can be even more fun! Create a rope of wreaths that stretches the entire length of your door. To do this, get a long rope and affix three (or more) wreaths in the same size even distances apart – one at the top, one in the middle of the door, and one at the bottom.
Alternatively, connect more wreaths down a rope, as many as you can fit along the length of your entry doors. Dress each wreath up with different decorations such as lights, ribbons or tinsel, ornaments, and other holiday decorations.
Choose non-traditional wreaths
If you love the idea of wreaths but are a little bored of traditional pine, seek out ones that are made from non-traditional materials instead. One popular choice is a wreath made of glass ornaments. Other ideas for non-traditional wreaths for your entry door include yarn wreaths, candy cane wreaths, or holly berry wreaths. A quick internet search will give you dozens of ideas – the sky’s the limit!
