Ways to Decorate Your Front Door for the Holidays

3 min read

Your entryway can set the tone for how the rest of your home is decorated for the holidays, making it a key point for decoration options. Whether you favor a minimalist look or deck the halls wherever you can, there’s an entryway decor choice to match your taste. Our gift to you is some of our best ideas, both classic and more original, to spruce up your front door decor for the holidays. 

A Simple Wreath

A classic choice for the holidays, a wreath provides just a touch of festive cheer to your front door. For those who don’t go all-out on decorations, this is a perfect choice, and for those who spread festive cheer wherever they go, it makes a great centerpiece for their outdoor decorations. There’s a reason it’s one of the most popular options. Sometimes you can’t beat the classics! 

Plus, the transition from Thanksgiving door decor to Christmas or Hannukah decorations provides you an excuse to change your cheery holiday decor twice. You could even buy an evergreen wreath and switch out decorations for one holiday or another.

Go for Garlands

If your tastes lean toward a more natural look, garlands could work well for your indoor and outdoor holiday decor. Leaning into green and brown with natural touches like pinecones, wood and other leaves can look beautifully understated, especially when combined with an elegant front door that stands up on its own.

Of course, if you enjoy a more glamorous holiday look, garlands can still be a great choice! Go for a shock of color like white or pink for the garland itself, or add flashy ribbons and ornaments to bring your unique style to your garland. 

Top Off with Topiaries

If you’re looking for an upscale way to welcome the holiday season, topiaries framing your front door could be the way to go. Don’t worry; you won’t need to have a green thumb to add this touch of garden elegance to your entryway. You can find artificial topiaries at many stores focused on home decor. Add a string of ornaments wrapped around the topiary or even find one shaped like a tree or gift. Just add a bow to the top to complete the festive cheer! 

Get Crafty with Festive Signs

You’ve probably seen signs around doorways in your neighborhood emblazoned with warm, welcoming sentiments like “Welcome” or “Blessed.” Add a holiday twist to these signs by searching out a sign with “HO HO HO” or “Merry and Bright!” If you’re feeling crafty, you could easily repurpose a welcome sign into a holiday theme with a coat or two of fresh paint and some careful handwriting. 

Merry and Bright with Lights

For some households, coating their homes in lights from roof to porch is as much a part of the season as gift-giving and family get-togethers. For Hanukkah door decorations in particular, you can’t go wrong with lights, but they add the perfect touch for a Thanksgiving or Christmas front door too. If you haven’t embraced adding lights to your home before, why not give it a try? You don’t need to go all-out to add a bright touch. Adding a structural display of lights shaped like a reindeer near your door is festive and only requires one outlet. For an even more lowkey detail, you could add string lights to a garland to make your home light up for the season at night.
