I do love Christmas decorations, who doesn’t? Well, my husband for one as he always bashes his head on things, which I think is further proof that he stumbles about with his eyes closed – though you probably shouldn’t tell him that.
I have been doing my daily Pinterest scheduling with a bit more enthusiasm of late, and I’ve found in spending more and more time getting sucked into the many many wonderful ideas for Xmas decor. This year I’m going to have a look at what I can do differently on my front door instead of the tires wreath that I have been hanging for however many years. Here are some of my favourite suggestions:
A beautiful light up heart from Scotlight Direct
I love this, it was sent through to me a few weeks ago and I think it is a wonderful decoration for people who want some longevity out of their Christmas decorations. This kind of thing really stands out and invites people info your home with its soft lights and that lovely shape – then of course you can use it for day to day decor too!
Dangling pine cones
I saw this on Pinterest last week and I love it! You take some big, full pine cones, attach your favourite Christmas ribbon and then attach to the front of your door with a nail. I love the simplicity and how easy this would be to make, plus how beautiful would it look with a few lights around it.
Santa’s hat door hanging
This is really cute and I think the boys would get such a kick out of it! You take a normal Santa hat and fill it with flowers, pine cones and berries, hang it upside down on the door. Too cute!
Twig Christmas scene
My mum used to make these, or rather a very simple version of them to decorate the dining table, when I was younger. I adore this and I’m definitely going to give it a go with the boys, maybe to han on the front door, or possibly the back one depending on what we get up to to.
The partridge in the pear tree
I think this is one of my favourites of all time. So stylish and genuinely breathtaking to adorn your front porch with. Take a simple branch, spray it golden or bronze and then place a single partridge in the middle, and dangle a faux pear from the side. Beautiful.
I’ve never been a huge fan of gaudy baubles, but I do really like this idea for a slightly funkier take on Xmas. Take a large frame, some baubles of your choosing and some Xmas ribbon. It’s really that simple.
Got an old pair of mittens? Then you’re in luck! Take some Christmas tree trimmings and pine cones, artfully stuffing your mittens, then just hang em up!
I hope you feel inspired by some of theses simply suggestions, from the re-useable light shapes, mittens and frames to the funky Santa hats, there can be something for every front door!
