Ready to decorate your home for the holidays? Start with the front – add one of these 30+ great ideas for DIY Christmas door decor!
It’s that time of year again! Time to deck the halls, light up the house and get into the holiday spirit. One way to celebrate is by adding some festive flair with your door decor.
I’ll be honest, I’m not one to get too festive on the outside of the house, typically. For Christmas, there were a few years when I decorated with Star Wars inflatables and lights. I’d love to do more, but it’s kind of expensive and I’m not much into that type of DIY. I respect those that are though!
If you are one of those type of outdoor decorators, don’t give up on me. One thing I do like for the holidays is door decor.
I feel it’s a nice way to commit a bit to the holiday without going all out. It’s nice when someone comes to a party or gathering and sees beautiful Christmas decor staring them in the face. It’s a great way to greet people.
If you’re considering making your own homemade decorations this year for the holidays, I’ve got a great list of ideas for you. Everything ranging from wreaths to pallet wood. Decorating your door doesn’t have to be a big deal, and you can get something that everyone will love with just a little effort.
