Front door styled with weaved pots with a christmas tree and plants and a home door mat

Overview

Share the warmth and welcome guests this holiday season by decorating your front door, the perfect canvas for some festive cheer. From a garland, to hanging leaf plants and lanterns, there’s plenty you can do to style your front door this December. Here are our top tips for some inspiration.

Steps

1Garland and wreath

A great addition to any front door is a garland and wreath. Weave through festive lights for an extra special touch. You can affix the garland or wreath using 3M hooks.

2Add mini-Christmas trees

Add mini-Christmas trees to the corners of your porch or by your front door for a dose of cheer. If you opt for Christmas trees in plain pots, try wrappin them in hessian.

3Light it up

Give your front door a glow by adding fairy lights to a lantern or vase. You can also use solar-powered lights to guide visitors to your front door, creating a gentle ambiance.

4Level up

Stack different sized baskets or pots to create layers and add height. You can fill the baskets with dummy presents or garden cuttings and foliage to add an Australian touch to your decorations.
