Christmas wreath to decorate the front door
It’s the typical ornament , right? The one that they put in the houses in many homes and that the guests spend a while looking at before ringing the bell. They are sold in any store, but since we know that you like DIY, we advise you to prepare your wreath with holly leaves, bottle corks or lights and tinsel and place it in the center of the door.

And what do you think of a very large Santa Claus as an ornament to decorate the door of the house for Christmas? It will appeal to the older ones and also to the little ones and it is something that we can easily do ourselves with a little cardboard, colors and white pom-poms. Remember to put a small sack next to it with some packages wrapped in shiny gift paper sticking out.
Door decorated with bows
If you put some big bows that cover the front door from top to bottom, you will have a different, original decoration that will also take a little time. The point is that you let your imagination run wild and surprise yourself with what you are capable of doing. Let’s do it!
with Christmas lights
You will have to put something as a base to hold the lights that is seen as little as possible and program them to turn on only at a specific time or when it detects that someone has arrived home. It will cost you a little more to prepare this Christmas decoration, but the result will seem so beautiful that you will immediately realize that the effort has been worth it.
Felt decorations: a red-nosed reindeer, Santa, a small Christmas tree, a boot or a sock, look great under the tree, on the mantel in the living room and also on the front door. And it doesn’t take much to give a little life to the entrance, to make it look different, to help us get out of the routine. The decoration is also perfect as a family pastime!
You can put lights and also create a nice design with Christmas balls , just as if you put them on the tree, only on the door of your home. Take a look around to get inspired by the design that you like the most or just give free rein to your imagination, surely you will come up with more ideas than you think. Of course, that the balls have a balance of colors, your house will look like that of a famous one!
red stars with glitter
There are those who like to decorate the door from top to bottom with as many things as possible and there are those who opt for a minimalist style, less loaded and simple, but just as beautiful. If you are one of the latter, what do you think about placing some stars on the door? Intense red color with glitter sparkles. It will be so chic that more than one neighbor will end up copying the idea.
Christmas garlands to decorate the entrance for Christmas
Garlands are another typical decorative element of these family parties that can be placed on its own or combined with other details such as lights, balls or even the crown. You will have to decide if you want yours made of cardboard, tinsel or felt. Choose according to your tastes and according to the rest of the home decoration.
You can order your Christmas stickers with the message that you like the most: ‘Merry Christmas’, ‘Happy New Year’, ‘Long live the Christmas spirit’ and place them, instead of on the window, on the door of the house. Just remember that it has a color that stands out with that of the door so that they can be seen well. How original has been!
Decorations with dried pineapples
You know, you take some dried pineapples, it is season so you will easily find them in the parks, you paint them white as if they had snow. Then you prepare some ribbons or strings and place them at the entrance of the house so that your family and friends can appreciate your good taste when they come to visit you for Christmas.
Tips for decorating the front door for Christmas
Decorating the front door with Christmas decorations will help you make your home much more beautiful, to enjoy some time doing something you like and also to give your neighbors a bit of the Christmas magic that we love so much. We continue with our ideas, we still have a lot to see!
Figure of the Three Wise Men
If before we have considered the possibility of decorating the door with a figure of Santa, now we are considering doing the same with the Three Wise Men. When their majesties leave after leaving their gifts, they will be amazed at how well you have represented them.
With the children’s drawings
Another idea that you will surely like as much or more than the previous ones is to ask the children to make some Christmas drawings on cardboard, to color them and cut them out and, with your help, to paste them at the entrance of the house. This is going to be one of the decorations that you like the most of all, you will even want to save them to take out again next Christmas!
A really big elf or Santa’s elf helper, what’s another great decoration idea? Here you also have several options to choose from: cardboard, easy to create and put on, or felt, something more elaborate, especially because of the size, but much more attractive and interesting.
As you can see, there are decorations that are designed solely to decorate the door, such as the crown, and others that change places, such as the snow stars that are placed in windows and that we now take to the door. We love those that have a snow effect, and you?
Messages with our best wishes
Do you know what else you can do? Prepare some envelopes and hang them on the door. Now you just have to put a message in each of them: a Christmas greeting , a message of good wishes for our loved ones, a phrase with a Christmas flavor … You have a lot to choose from!
Cardboard Christmas tree
With toilet paper rolls decorated and painted in various shades of green: light, dark, lettuce green, fir green, we create a Christmas tree (put some cardboard to make the base of the Christmas tree) that we will place at the entrance of home. Don’t forget to put some balls or a star in the cup, also made of cardboard and in a color other than the green of the branches. The little ones in the house will be the ones who will appreciate this wonderful decoration best, you’ll see!
Tinsel to decorate the door
If you go a little tight for time, it happens to us too, but still you do not want to miss the opportunity to decorate the door of your house, what you can do is put a little tinsel in bright colors, but not in any way, that it is funny, beautiful, that it is seen that you have good taste and that you have worked hard. It will help you recover the Christmas spirit that is often forgotten by the rush of everyday life.
Christmas reindeer design
You see, you put a wreath of leaves in the center of the door , prepare a reindeer figure with antlers and a red nose included with 3D cardboard and put it inside the wreath so that you achieve the effect of the reindeer coming out of it. Yes, we know, it is one of the most laborious decorations that we have shared with you, but, since it is about having the best ideas in your hand, we could not rule it out!
Holly leaves and corks
With a few holly leaves and some bottle corks that you can collect until you have a few, you can also create beautiful decorations to put anywhere in the house, including the door: a wreath, a Christmas figure, simply a postcard, a star or maybe a lucky number. Choose the one you like best, prepare a template to make it easier for you and have the design ready before placing it in the center of the door.
