How To Give Your Front Door That Festive Feel

Few things put you in the festive mood quite as much as decorating your house in readiness for Santa coming. If you have yet to put your decorations up we suggest that you do it right away and don’t be a Grinch!

Get right firmly into the spirit by having some classic Christmas songs blaring out while your dress the tree and pour yourself a glass of mulled wine and eat one too many mince pies as a reward.

Don’t forget to decorate your front door too! A Christmassy composite, UPVC or timber door will show people that you’re a fan of the festive season and bring a beaming grin to the face of Father Christmas on Christmas morning.

You’ll be on to a winner this Yuletide with these door dressing ideas…

Christmas wreath

Wreaths were first hung on doors in Ancient Rome when they would denote victory and they’re regularly used to this day at Christmastime.

For followers of Christianity a Christmas wreath symbolises the preparation of the coming of Christ, while Pagan followers use it as a representation of eternity or divinity.

Circularly structured, you can buy real and fake Christmas wreaths and the majority of them feature one or more of the following items – foliage, baubles, pine cones, red coloured ribbon etc.

The Independent has recently compiled a 10-strong list of its best real Christmas wreaths here if you’d like to see some examples.

Add a bow to your door

If you have grown a little bored of the Christmas wreath and want to know what the latest fashionable decorating trend at Christmas is, we can tell you that it’s big bows.

Just like you might apply a big red bow to your Christmas presents, why not do the same to your door and hang a big red bow to it.

Bows are really big news this Christmas and most major online and High Street retailers are selling door bows in various shapes and colours.

It’s an unBOWlievable way of making a striking Christmassy statement.

Frame it with fairy lights

Make sure all eyes are on your door throughout the Christmas period by fitting some fairy lights around its perimeter.

White or red coloured lights are most fitting for the festivities and if you don’t want them to contribute to your electricity bills, you can always buy battery-powered lights.

Leave it to the kids to hit the ‘on’ button each night to watch their faces light up as the bulbs themselves light up.
