It’s official—the Christmas season is in full swing and holiday decorations are popping up all over the place! When thinking about decorating your home for Christmas, the first and best place to start is your door or front porch! Use it as a focal point for your decorations. Think about what theme you like best. Maybe it’s a winter wonderland, an elf workshop, Frosty the Snowman, or a nativity scene theme that speaks to you. Whether it’s simple or elaborate, decorating for Christmas is all about what style you like the best.
Idea #1: Garland.
Garland around your front door is a classic way to make your home look fun and festive. This is a simple decorating idea, so if you want a little more elegance, consider adding bright red bows or white lights.
Idea #2: Snow.
Pacific Northwest weather is sometimes unpredictable. Whether we get snow or not, you can make your own snow scene with your home décor. To do this, use a can of window snow or ice. The trick is to be careful when you apply it by covering the trim to avoid damage to the wood or vinyl parts of the window.
Idea #3: Decorated doors.
Decorating your front door can truly captivate passersby and guests that come to your home. Use foil wrapping paper to cover it and tie it with an over-sized bow to make it look like a giant Christmas gift. Use bold metallic colors like green, red, silver, or gold. Another popular way to decorate the door is by adding beautiful wreaths. Whether it’s a fresh wreath made of greenery or one that you make yourself with the newest Pinterest craft idea, be sure that the colors and style complements the overall style of your home.
Idea #4: Let there be light.
If you have windows with ledges around your home, consider adding inexpensive battery-powered candle lights near the windows. Turn them off during the day and when the sun goes down for the day, switch them back on to give your home a warm glow during the dark winter night.
