Front Door Christmas Garland

Decorating your front door with garland is an easy way to add a Christmas feel to your front or side entrance. You can use real or faux garland and for an extra touch add lights to the garland. Battery operated lights work the best especially if you do not have a plug near the door.

Front door Christmas decorations do not always need to be outdoor decorations. If you have a covered front porch, you will have more flexibility to use some indoor Christmas decorations as well. Depending on what part of the country you live in and if the porch is covered, the decorations will be protected from the natural elements.

Lighted Front Door Christmas Wreath

Front door Christmas decorations look beautiful at night when they are lite up. I love the idea of a lighted Christmas wreath. Battery operated light strands make hanging a lite wreath on your front door simple.

I love how this small christmas wreath for the front door below is simple and coordinates with same style front door Christmas garland.

Keep small front porch decorations to a minimum. With a small front porch, things can get cluttered easily so keeping the scale of the Christmas decorations in proportion with the size of the porch is also important. colorful-festive-doors
