5 Instagram-worthy Ways to Decorate your Front Door this Christmas

When it comes to Christmas decorations, the majority of people will ’deck the halls with boughs of holly’, but what about your home’s exterior? Creating a warm and festive welcome at the front door can put a smile on the face of a Christmas Grinch and make your home look beautiful too.
So, instead of plonking a tired old wreath on the door knob, here are five Instagram-worthy ways to decorate your home’s front door and entrance.

1. Give the classic wreath a twist
Any style of door looks better with a wreath at Christmas time, whether it’s a composite front door, a wooden door or a modern uPVC external door.
Take some unused baubles and make them into a wreath to hang on the door.

2. Decorate the porch
When decorating your front door, don’t forget to take into consideration the immediate space around the entrance, particularly the porch. Use the lines your porch creates and the door frame from which to hang foliage, lights and other festive decorations.
Use a mixture of bold snowflakes, baubles and foliage to line your door frame.
