Christmas Door Decorating Ideas
- First of all, don’t just choose any door, choose the one that serves as the main entrance to the insides of your house and is used most frequently as the main door.
- You can either choose to decorate the door as a standalone decoration or with a theme that will then accompany the decorations done on the inside. The theme can even be only for the door. Use your imagination as to what theme you’d like and use the ornaments and colors accordingly.
- Even if it’s not Christmas, plants always add a naturally vibrant dimension to the decorations of the entrance doorway. But around Christmas, the show is totally different. Christmas poinsettias or small pine trees, placed on either side of the door and decorated like Christmas trees with further beautify the look of the door.
- Christmas bells represent the joy of the season and will not only add an ornamental effect to the door, but will spread a little holiday cheer too every time the bells ring up due to wind or when the door is opened.
- Wreaths are inseparable part of Christmas decorations, be it on the door, window, fireplace, main gate and so on. There’s just something Christmassy about them that cheers the senses out of the visitors. And there are a lot of wreaths to choose from: spray painted white wreath, green grapevine wreath, red berry wreath, paper star wreath, Christmas balls wreath, and many more.
- If you don’t live in a region where it snows around Christmas but have a lawn, you can have it covered with artificial snow, leading right up to the doorway. Place an old sled on the snow covered lawn, without blocking the doorway. The decorative effect of the entire doorway and surroundings will be surmounted.
- Finally, it will all feel incomplete if Christmas lighting is missing from the scene. Decorate the whole doorway with a string of small cherry sized lights, turn them on at night and watch them light up the proceedings, adding a vivacious feel to the Christmas spirit.
