Add Shimmer and Sparkle to Christmas Door Decorations

Adding a welcoming and festive cheer to your exterior front entryways and doorsthis holiday season. As my husband and I build our home in the North Carolina, this great article from BHG and photos inspire me to dress up our front entryway for the Christmas holiday season! I can't wait to decorate this home for the holidays! Thanks BHG for always inspiring us with your fabulous articles on Christmas andHoliday Decorating

Add Shimmer and Sparkle to Christmas Door Decorations

Give a traditional Christmas wreath a sparkling touch by placing a large silver star in the center. Drape a garland with a string of Christmas lights over your front door, and add some extra glow with two lit candles in simple outdoor containers.

Use Fresh Greenery Use Fresh Greenery 

For a festive Christmas decoration, hang a small pouch made from a linen dishtowel, festive ribbon, and silver bells on your front door. Fold a dish towel in half and sew the sides to make a pouch, then fill it with a pine sapling in a plastic bag (with damp cheesecloth wrapped around the roots) to decorate a door for Christmas in a unique way.

Add Welcoming Elements Add Welcoming Elements

It's easy to decorate a door for Christmas with simple and welcoming elements. Set a petite Christmas tree on your porch and hang a trio of white stockings on your front door. For the Christmas tree, use strands of white lights and a few well-placed silver ornament balls that can withstand the elements. Hot-glue a few white stockings together and hang with wide silk ribbon. To add a personal touch to your Christmas door decorations, stencil a few welcoming words on the largest stocking before hanging.

Sometimes one wreath isn't enough. Hang a trio on your front door this year, placing the biggest one in the middle and two smaller ones above and below. Use plenty of ribbon for color accents or hang red wreaths directly on top of the green ones for a bold look.
Gather Pinecones in Swags Gather Pinecones in Swags

Fashion a unique Christmas door decoration from large pinecones adhered to red-and-white boat rope using hot glue.

Editor's Tip: To keep the decoration from knocking against your door, add a touch of putty behind each pinecone.
Transform Premade into One-of-a-Kind Transform Premade into One-of-a-Kind

It's easy to customize an ordinary garland for extraordinary impact. Small holiday ornaments secured with hot glue coordinate with this red front door, adding bright pops of color to a premade pinecone wreath. Tall lanterns, adorned with small sprigs of berries, add to the colorful Christmas door decorations.
Balance Your Christmas Door Decorations Balance Your Christmas Door Decorations

Ornate doors and wide front entryways need little decoration. Instead, add accents to the surrounding areas to create the perfect holiday look. Two containers flank this wide entry; their placement plays off the elegant front porch's symmetry. Bright silver and red holiday ornaments accent both the containers and the evergreen wreath.
