The first thing guests see when they come to your home is your door. You may want to decorate it is you are having guests coming to your house for Christmas. Remember it will be the first impression that they get as they come into your home. Here are some tips to help you decorate your door for Christmas.
A window on the door makes a prefect place to put Christmas window decals. You can get decals that are the same inside and out like white snowflakes and they will decorate the window so you can see them from the inside and outside.
A door without a window can have a full size door decoration on it. You can get a plastic door cover that looks like a Santa Clause, snowman or even an elf. These cover up the door completely and look inviting.
For a door that is more sophisticated you can get a real nice wreath and put it up on the door. You can purchase a special wreath hanger to hang the wreath up on. Wreaths come in a variety of types. You can get a wreath made with real tree bows or you can get an artificial wreath that you can use for many years as a decoration. Wreaths can also be made of tinsel and decorated with ornaments. It is important to keep the wreath a proper size for the door. A wreath that is too big for the door will look funny.
You can also get a natural wreath made with real tree branches and decorated with pine cones, nuts and berries.
Decorating around the door with lights and tinsel can make the house look festive. You can leave the door plain and decorate around the edges of the door or you can decorate both the door and around it.
A Christmas mat can be placed in front of the door to have your guests wipe their feet on. Christmas mats can be pretty and functional by helping keep snow and dirt out of the house.
A door can also be decorated on the inside so that it will give Christmas cheer to people who are leaving. When you decorate both sides of the door try to keep the decorations from being seen on the other side. Or if you have a window you can decorate the window so the decorations can be seen inside and out.
