This post is written in conjunction with my partnership with Command Brand.
Today I want to share with some simple Christmas front door ideas. Now, I don’t want you to worry that I have already decorated my front door in November, I am not that crazy. I actually did it in July! So, putting aside the sweltering heat I was decorating in, the goal was to share some really simple ideas for decorating your front door for Christmas – regardless of the weather.
It is fairly common to string an evergreen garland around your front door and fill it with lights. But why not use a beautiful Christmas ribbon? I used a flannel buffalo check that was about 3” wide. It was super easy to hang, fairly inexpensive and just a little bit different.
To hang the ribbon, I used Command Brand Light clips.
Cleaning the area first and following the instructions on the package, I hung the clips in the top corners and the bottom corners. I started on the bottom left with a knot at the bottom to hold it in place. Then I draped it and hooked the ribbon in each top corner. I finished by tying another knot at the bottom right and hooking it in place. Then, I went back in and tucked in a bow at each top corner. If you would like to know how I made my bow, you can watch my bow making video.
I also used a Command Brand Brushed Nickel Outdoor Hook to hang a premade swag with a ribbon added. This hook has been on my front door for months – and is still holding strong. I just keep switching it out for the seasons.
To add a little more to the area, I also used the Command Brand terrace hooks to hang a basket to the side of the door. Again, following the preparation and hanging instructions on the package, I attached the hook in place to my siding. I hung one hook at the top to hold the ribbon and a second one at the bottom to hold the basket in place.
After waiting an hour, I hung a fishing basket from the same ribbon.
Then, I added another bow at the top and filled the basket with faux greenery.
I brought out my favorite vintage sled and added a few details to the bench.
I love this so much, I am pretty sure I am going right back in with same approach. I just love how the ribbon is so simple but brings such nice color and a Christmas feel.
How about you? How are you planning to decorate your front door for the holidays?
