If your favorite part of Christmas is the abundance of candy canes, then this Christmas front door decoration is right up your alley. Hang two large outdoor candy canes on either side of your door, the hooked parts facing in opposite directions. If the candy canes you pick up don’t have enough sparkle for your liking, then add some glitter spray, which can easily be found at any craft store. To really give this look some pizazz, loop some candy cane print ribbon around a wreath, finishing off your unique DIY christmas decoration with some metallic green and red bulbs.
This gorgeous design aesthetic is inspired by the beauty of a wrapped gift sitting under the Christmas tree. Christmas wreaths are a beautiful centerpiece for any door design scheme. This look takes it to the next level by hanging a traditional Christmas stocking on the wreath. To create the appearance of a wrapped gift, string garland around the perimeter of your entryway. This homeowner accentuated the garland with colorful red bows, but you could also add ornaments, tinsel or string lights. Accentuate the look by adding some colorful red poinsettias, a staple of the Christmas season.
How The Grinch Stole Christmas is one of the most iconic holiday stories of all time. This Grinch-inspired Christmas decor will impress everyone in your neighborhood. The door hanging can be created easily. Using green fabric, hand stitch a large stocking with a pointed toe. Fill it with pillow stuffing and close it at the top. Add a red fur trim and red fabric polka dots using fabric glue and finish with a candy cane trim. The upside-down stockings can easily be created using white Styrofoam cones and red and green ribbon.
The holiday season is a special time of year that is filled with the warmth of family, friends and memories. Professional decorative lighting and displays greatly enhance the special experience that comes from this joyous time. For over 30 years, the professional designers, installers and staff of Christmas Decor have been a part of helping families and businesses create a magical experience for loved ones and clients.
Not all Christmas door decorations have to be bright and sparkly. This gorgeous design idea is completely inspired by the beauty of nature. It’s a perfect opportunity to embark on a fun Christmas craft project with some found objects from nature. Add real pine-cones, leaves and crabapples to a wreath using a hot glue gun. These natural items accentuate a wreath or a garland beautifully. If your favorite part of the Christmas season is exploring the beauty and splendor of a forrest before the snow has really begun to fall, this is without a doubt one of the absolute best homemade Christmas decorations you could make.
Just as I mentioned in my my Dollar tree Fall craft and decor ideas I posted back in August, “don’t shoot the messenger”. Little did I know it would be so warmly received, and yet so early on. So I figured I would piggy back off that, and share my Dollar tree Christmas craft and decor ideas round up with you. Obviously, budget friendly craft ideas seem to be pretty popular. At this point in my life, I pride myself on them. I enjoy taking something basic and creating some seasonal fun with it. All the links highlighted will take you to the actual project and/or free printable.
