3 Ways To Decorate Your Door For Christmas

Tis the season to be jolly and on that note we hope that you’re in a Christmassy mood and have decked out your house for the forthcoming festivities.

The Christmas tree should definitely be up and hopefully there’s a throng of presents slowly building up underneath it. Your front door should also be dressed up and decorated for the occasion as you don’t want to be seen as being a Grinch by other people.

If it’s currently bare and lacking a bit of festive flavour, we have three door dressing ideas that will instantly put you on Santa’s nice list.

Hang up a Christmas wreath

It was in Ancient Rome that wreaths were first made and hung onto doors as a symbolic representation for victory and it has become custom to add Christmas-inspired wreaths to doors at this time of the year.

If you’re good with your hands and have exceptional crafting skills, you could try and make your own wreath or to save time and energy just buy a pre-made wreath, real or fake.

A typical Christmas wreath will be made using foliage and include things like baubles, pine cones, red coloured ribbon, little bells etc. – click here to see some examples.

Fix a big bow to it

You may have been putting a Christmas wreath on your door for years and fancy doing something a little different and more fashionable.

A new door dressing trend has emerged during the last couple of Christmases with increasing numbers of homeowners’ applying a big bow to their front doors, just like you might wrap a bow around your presents.

Red bows are the most fitting colour choice and you need to be certain that the bow is made of a material strong enough to stand up to the weather as you don’t want it to be damaged or blow away.

Fit some fairy lights around the frame

We have a fantastically fetching range of traditional and contemporary composite doors that are eye-catching enough as they are but you can emphasise their presence even more at Christmas by installing fairy lights around the perimeter of the door frame.

Choose fairy lights with red or white bulbs and if you want to keep your electricity costs down, buy battery-powered lights.

Put the kids in charge of turning the lights on every night as they will love doing it.


We doubt that Santa will be able to get one of our composite doors down the chimney, so you’re best just contacting Essex Composite Door Shop to get one direct from us.
