Flocked + Fanciful

Evergreen garland flocks the gleaming glass doors of this home that feature two matching snowy wreaths tied in the center with classic red ribbon.

Holiday Cheer You Can’t Deny

We like big bows, and we cannot lie. Oversized bows are so easy to create and the results add tons of seasonal cheer to otherwise bland doors.

Who knew $1 letters could look so, so sophisticated? The seasonal door hanging features snowy letters and a miniature rustic wreath that creates a striking “NOEL” that pops against a rich, teal door.

Seasonal Citrus

While this wreath is beautiful for any time of year, we can’t help but think that the kumquats and leafy, silvery greenery creates quite the holiday wreath. Doesn’t this bright combo tempt you to break the mulled wine and kumquat Christmas pudding?

Wrapped in Fir

Why wrap up in fur when fir is readily available? Classic charm oozes from this vintage front door, draped in evergreen garland and flanked by two pretty pinecone and ruby-red ornament arrangements.

Festive Rope Letters

Try this playful twist on a standard holiday wreath. Just wrap sections of rope with fine-gauge wire, working it between the rope’s twists, then shape into letters to spell out a favorite holiday sentiment.

Door Knob Decor

Bring a little jingle to your bedroom and closet doors with door knob decor. These can be as simple as leather belts with attached bells, or get creative by using crafting forms in different shapes and adding unique materials.

Cookie Cutter Curb Appeal

An aluminum gingerbread man brings whole new meaning to “cookie cutter” decorating. There’s nothing basic or ordinary about this playful door hanging.

Dress the Part

Once you’ve draped your property with enough twinkle lights to be seen in space, be sure to polish off the design with a classic evergreen garland, red and gold ribbon and a holly-clad wreath. A few pinecones and metallic jingle bells don’t hurt, either.

Cascading Cards + Wintry Mat

Go to the dollar section and pick up a few packs of holiday cards to create a fun, card garland to frame your door. Pro Tip: Invest in a delightful doormat that will last you through the entirety of winter – not just the holidays.
