42 stunning front door Christmas decorations and ideas, say what! If you are looking to elevate your front door or porch this holiday season, you have come to the right place. Let’s take a look at how Christmas wreaths, outdoor garland around a door frame, Christmas lights, planters, and Christmas decor can turn your front entrance into a winter wonderland.
How Can I Decorate My Front Door For Christmas?
Garland and Lights
A front door with Christmas garland is the perfect way to add festive cheer.
You can use real or faux garland and for an extra touch add fairy 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.
