Original ideas to decorate your front door
If you’re looking for a space at your home that is easy to decorate, yet provides a great impact, look no further than your front door. Before you create an image of a wreath hanging as the only decorative element, think about some other options that are more unique, fresh and reflect your personality better. If you can’t and still keep going back to the wreath, take a look at some ideas that can help you decorate your front door without spending a lot of time or money, but which all definitely make your home much more attractive.
Resort to unusual objects
If your kids have grown out of their rain boots, you might use them as containers for flowers and hang them using a wreath hanger. Alternatively, you might consider using a watering can instead of the boots, but make sure you don’t make your decorations too heavy.
If you have an old chalkboard that isn’t too big for your front door, you can use it to create a very interesting, personalised decoration, containing anything from a welcome message to your house number. You can paint the interior of a tray or cupboard door with chalkboard paint if you want to customise your decoration even more. Having such an item allows you to change the design and message as often as you wish.
One of the most attractive decorations for your front door is a flower door basket, containing fresh flowers. Of course, you can opt for faux flowers, but you’d be running a risk of failing to achieve the natural, realistic look. One of the advantages is that you can have your decoration change colours as flowers begin to bloom or leaves start turning yellow or red.
This is something you can use to personalise your home and many people around the world have been introducing monograms to their front door over the past several years. Many stores offer various types and sizes of letters you can use, but if you really want to make it your own, you might want to consider making a monogram from scratch. Choose the font and size of the letter, find a piece of hardboard and plug in your jigsaw. Once you cut it out, you can cover the letter with anything you want, from moss and buttons to shells and twine.
We all have at least one picture frame lying in the attic or basement and this might be the right time to finally put it to some good use. You can decorate the frame with whatever material you want, but the most important thing is the picture you’re going to put in the frame. What you mustn’t do is put pictures of you and your family, because it’s not really safe.
To make your home safer, you might want to invest in security measures by getting a professional locksmith round to review your home security.
This is another very creative idea, which can help you make a great impression on everyone who comes to visit your home. You can choose any shape and colour you wish and all you need are your imagination, a jigsaw and some paint. Whether you opt for a dog, a book, an oversized flip-flop or something completely different, you can be sure that your front door decoration will be unique and, as such, stand out from the rest.
These are just some ideas that you might want to explore if you decide to avoid having a wreath on your front door, but still feel that the door should feature some kind of decoration. If you still can’t find anything you like, check out what other people have posted online and you’ll surely find something that you’ll find appealing and easy to make. After all, if you get bored with your choice, you can always replace it quickly and with even more originality.
