How To Turn Your Front Door Into A Christmas-Inspired Entrance

The clock is well and truly ticking if you have yet to complete your Christmas shopping or decorate your house for the festivities – you don’t want to disappoint your fellow family members or Santa!

Putting up the Christmas decorations is always one of the most fun parts of the Christmas build-up and certain to give you that festive feeling. You can make a real occasion of it and invite all the little ones in the house to get involved in dressing up the Christmas tree.

And it’s not just the tree you should decorate! Ensure Father Christmas is greeted with a Christmassy front door on Christmas morning – who knows, if he likes what he sees he may leave you an extra present or two.

‘Yule’ love our top three door dressing tips…

Christmas wreath

The traditional wreath can be dated back to Ancient Rome when it would be hung on a door to symbolise victory and it’s since become a Christmas ritual to hang a wreath on the front door during this important time in the calendar.

You can buy literally thousands of pre-made Christmas wreaths but if you’re skilled enough you can have a lot of fun trying to make your own. To do it you will need some wire and foliage and may want to incorporate all or some of the following items: baubles, fairy lights, pine cones, red coloured ribbon, red berries.

Stick a bow to it

A new trend emerged in Europe in the last couple of years and it has made its way over here with thousands of UK householders adding a big bow to their door at Christmas very much like they would to a present.

The obvious colour choice is red and you can buy bows for your door in various sizes. Any bow you buy must be able to stand up to the weather as the last thing you want is for your bow to be blown away or get damaged.

Again, you could have a go at making your own if you have the handy skills to do it.

Fit some fairy lights

Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without some fairy lights. You could attach them around the frame of your door to draw attention to it at night-time.

White coloured fairy lights are thought to be the most appropriate colour for the occasion and they don’t have to mains-powered as you can buy battery-powered fairy lights from lots of on and offline stockists.

The switching on of the lights at night will become a real highlight of your day.


We very much doubt that Santa will bring you a new front door this Christmas, but Visual can supply and fit a new front door in the New Year. Check out our Special Offers page to save money on a door.
