Pro tips on decorating French doors for Christmas

There are so many ways that you can go about decorating your house’s French door or front door. Let’s get started:

Bottlebrush Trees:

Something as simple as attaching these tiny trees, also known as bottle brush trees, can provide an appealing forest-like feel to your French door or even entrance door. A coat of artificial is just going to amp up the entire forest feel.


Natural Garland and Wreath:

One of the more traditional ways to begin your decorations, natural garlands and wreaths are simple yet extremely elegant. You can just gather some garlands and merely place or arrange them on your doors. If you want to do more, then take something sparkling and hang that in the centre of your door with a Holiday wreath. Classics never disappoint!


Rattan Bells:

These are a lot cuter and much more charming Christmas bells that have begun replacing the traditional wreath. What’s more, they also make a good style statement!


Proud Nutcracker:

The Christmas look is incomplete without the great Santa and his Reindeer. Try giving your doors a beardy look (which you may do utilizing cotton) or make your French door look like a proud Nutcracker. That will be quite a door decoration for Christmas.


Exterior Decorations:

Christmas decorations are synonymous to vibrant Lightings, holiday wreaths, red bows, candles, stars, garlands and Christmas trees, most of all. You can use these decorations like background and highlight the stylish sliding French doors.

Winter Wonderland Front Door:

This is going to come in handy especially with your French and sliding French glass doors. Make some cute DIY handcrafted snowflakes and decorate the door with them. You can try framing different patterns of snowflakes to bring out the festivity of the occasion. And don’t worry if you are unable to make DIY snowflakes; you can find them in plenty in the market.

Burlap Ribbons:

This one is going to create a majestic look. The burlap ribbon strips add to the texture, colour and bring out the holiday touch on your frontage.

Ribbon Wreath:

Try and make handmade wreaths with a beautiful colour combination like that of red, white, and silver that enhance the overall look. If your French door has a dark shade, the suggested colour combination will make your handcrafted wreaths stand out.

To make the entire affair a lot grander, you can invite a Santa (or even become one) to greet all the family and friends that visit at your door. Another idea is to just buy a life-size Santa Claus that will keep the kids entertained.

These wonderful Christmas door decoration ideas and DIYs are sure to lend a warm and inviting gesture for your guests. Although, keep in mind to not spoil the entire look by using excessive lighting or too many wreaths. Remember, subtle is beautiful too!

Happy Decorating!
