Holiday Door Decor Ideas

Today I’m taking a trip down memory lane and sharing how I’ve decorated our front door for Christmas over the years.  I love to make Christmas wreaths and most years there’s a wreath made from fresh greenery on my door.  Today I’m sharing some of my favorites.

Monogram Christmas Wreath

Last year our Christmas front door wreath was a monogram one made using a wooden form handcrafted by Mr. SP.  Front porch decorated for Christmas with a handmade monogram wreath decorated with boxwood, berries, and pinecones.

I embellished the wreath with Deodar Cedar pine cones along with faux berries.Front porch decorated for Christmas with a handmade monogram wreath decorated with boxwood, berries, and pinecones.

I love filling our front porch urns with greenery and Curly Willow from our yard and adding faux berries for color.Front porch urns decorated with fresh greenery, curly willow branches and faux berries.

Live Greenery Christmas Wreaths

My mom and I traditionally make our Christmas wreaths together the day after Thanksgiving.  We drive around cutting greenery and then bring it all into my basement where we make our wreaths.  This beauty was on my Christmas front door in 2015.Handmade live greenery Christmas wreath.

This beauty isn’t mine, but was made by Keri Wilfong, one of my mom’s former neighbors, and is hanging on her 100 year old house’s fence.  Tour Keri’s home here.Live greenery wreath made with pine and holly.

This was my front door wreath Christmas 2014.Live greenery wreath made with a variety of pine species and decorated with red ribbon and pine cones.

This wreath wasn’t on our front door but is one of my favorites that I’ve made for over our mantel.  In 2014 it was part of my Four Calling Birds themed mantel.Four calling birds themed Christmas mantel

Magnolia Wreath

In 2012 I made a Magnolia wreath for our front door and embellished it with Sumac.  My dad harvested a big bag of Sumac for me shortly after I was married in 1994.  I’ve been using Sumac from that bag every year since it was harvested.Magnolia wreath decorated for Christmas with a red ribbon and sumac berries.

2012 was the year that I used Pottery Barn as an inspiration and wired red, gold, and silver balls to our garland and window wreaths.Pottery Barn inspired outdoor Christmas decor.

For a real blast from the past, check out the gigantic monogram ornament wreath that I made for our home back in 2009.

It was fun to take a trip down memory lane to see some of the wreaths that I’ve crafted over the years.  I still need to make a wreath for this year’s front door and also for the door leading from the deck to our kitchen.  Wreath making is fun for me and I’m hoping to make wreaths this week.

Next on the tour is Michelle from Thistle Key Lane.  Michelle is sharing a holiday door basket decoration and I’m looking forward to seeing how she made it.

    1. Thank you, CoCo! I grew up watching my mom make wreaths, so doing it is pretty natural for me. One year Mama made five wreaths for the outside of our house, two for over her fireplace, and then four more for church. My dad cut truckloads of pine for her to use.
