9 Ways To Get Holiday Door Decor Right… And One Way To Get It Really Wrong

Black Friday has now morphed into Black November, Christmas music made its way to the radio the second Trick-or-Treating ended, the cold weather arrived a good three weeks early, and it’s got you feeling that urge. That uncontrollable urge…to hang something festive on your door.

We can relate. But the line between pretty and pretty overwhelming is a thin one when it comes to decorating for the holidays. If you’re looking for tasteful yet festive holiday décor to dress up your front door, here are nine options (and one no-no).

1. Classically pretty

A wreath made of greenery and a smattering of ornaments is traditional and simple enough for matching planter décor. Keep the colors simple if you’re going for a classic look, and pay attention to how they play against your house colors.

In the picture above, the red and silver complement the black door.

2. Keep it natural

Create a welcoming look with a DIY mix of greenery and fruit. The interesting blend provides visual interest, while the natural color story keeps it streamlined.

3. Traditional with a twist

Three smaller wreaths connected by a ribbon offer an updated take on a classic look.

4. Bold, festive, and energetic

Put a little color into your world while still staying within the holiday décor lines with this ornament wreath. You can choose any color combo that works with your home, but we’re partial to the bold color play that makes a statement about the fun and festive side of the holidays.

5. Uniquely shaped

This star wreath from Martha Stewart is “made from sweet-smelling sprigs of golden cedar” and looks just as good hanging in a window as it will on your door.

6. Jingle all the way

We also love this jingle bell wreath from Martha Stewart (but beware if you are not a fan of noise!).

7. Go red!

Red is the most obvious choice for brightly colored holiday décor. Use these winterberry branches attached to a wire frame to create this standout wreath.

8. Beautiful and on trend

Combine a natural element with a festive trend with this silver and gold wreath. It’s easy to make with a craft store pinecone wreath, some spray paint, and “dazzling gold-dipped accessories: ornaments, walnuts, and ribbon.”

9. Bring the gifts outdoors

A project you can do as a family, this fun wreath is made of mini gift boxes (hint: you can often find bags of these at the Dollar Store) hot glued together and topped with a bow.

And here’s one big DON’T DO IT!

The shotgun pellet wreath from Bourbon and Boots is the latest in redneck holiday décor, sure to get you fined by your HOA and banned from neighborhood parties.
