1. DIY Wreath
A classic holiday decoration is a wreath, and there are lots of ways to create your own unique one. Start with a store-bought or handmade wreath form, and then add ribbons, baubles, pine cones, Christmas tree trimmings, faux snowflakes, and anything else you want to create a truly unique piece of art for your door. Once the holidays are over, make sure you store your wreath properly by wrapping it in breathable fabric or paper and placing it in a wreath storage box for safekeeping.
2. Christmas Tree Door
Use green construction paper or felt to cut out dozens of triangle shapes in various sizes. Stick the triangles onto your door in the shape of a Christmas tree for a fun 3D effect. Embellish with mini ornaments, stars, foam candy canes, and ribbons to make it truly festive!
3. Bouncy Reindeer
Turn three colorful balloons into an adorable reindeer head with a red pompom nose tied onto one balloon for Rudolph’s signature look! All you need is some brown crepe paper and tape to attach the balloons together in the shape of a reindeer head.
4. Paper Snowflake Wreath
Make this beautiful wreath with nothing more than some white paper and scissors! Cut out multiple large snowflakes from thick white paper, then fold them in half and punch holes in their centers. Attach the snowflakes to a store-bought or homemade wreath form using white thread or yarn, layering them until the entire form has snowflakes. Add a sparkly bow for extra effect.
5. Stained Glass Door Decoration
Cut pieces of colored cellophane into small circles or other shapes (Christmas trees are especially cute), then use glue or clear tape to stick them onto a sheet of clear contact paper large enough to cover your entire door. Once they dry in place, remove the backing from the contact paper and stick it directly to your door for an amazing stained glass effect.
6. Yarn Christmas Light Door
This unique decoration will transform your front door into a cozy winter wonderland! Start by stringing LED lights around the edges of your door frame using a strong tape like duct tape or gaffer’s tape. Then wrap colorful yarn around each light strand to create an eye-catching display that will make everyone smile when they come to visit.
7. Sleigh Door Decoration
Make an old-fashioned sleigh look new again with paint and felt details. Start by painting an old wooden sled in festive colors like bright red or green, then add small pieces of felt for details like handles and harnesses. Place wrapped gifts inside it before setting it near your front door for another unique holiday decoration that will add charm to any entryway.
8. Snowman Door Decoration
Everyone loves a jolly snowman! Create one for your front door using white paint and several different sizes of styrofoam balls (or white balloons if you can’t find those). Add details like buttons and eyes made from googly eyes or felt pieces, plus a pipe cleaner scarf and hat made out of felt or construction paper strips.
9. Mini Christmas Trees
Place several potted evergreen trees along either side of your front door for instant holiday cheer. Arrange them in ascending heights or alternate between different types of trees like Douglas fir and noble fir for added interest. Finish off by wrapping festive ribbons around each tree’s trunk for extra pizzazz.
10. Candy Cane Door Decoration
Repurpose candy canes by turning them into garlands that you can hang on either side of your front door! Use hot glue to attach candy canes together end-to-end into two long strands that you can loop together into a swag shape. Then hang up with twine or ribbon over each side of the doorway. You could also use other small holiday decorations like mini bells instead of candy canes if you prefer.
As you can see, there are lots of fun and festive DIY holiday door decorations that you can make this season. From candy canes to Christmas trees, these decorations are sure to add charm and cheer to your home. With a bit of imagination and a few supplies, you can make a stunning front entryway that will warmly welcome visitors all season long.So don’t wait any longer, get creative and start decorating your door for the holidays — they’ll be here before you know it!
