Your front door is where you welcome your guests. Make it standout during the holidays with garland around the door frame and beautiful Christmas decor hanging at the front door! Hanging garland decorations can be time consuming but worth it!

how I hang garland around door frame

  1. Nails are hammered in between stones and stay up year round.
  2. Use floral wire to loop around garland and around nail.
  3. Space nails every 8″ or so all around so it hands securely.

accent the garland with christmas decor vignettes

I created two small vignettes on either side of the door to make a big statement. To create height use stacked crates. I extended the garland around door to the vignettes laying the garland on top of burlap. Two outdoor bows are attached at the top with wire attaching them.

      Thanks, Dorothy, though I can’t take credit. I’ve had some really talented designers who were able to translate what I wanted into beautiful livable rooms! The Christmas decor is all me though — I’m such a holiday lover!

Please share your thoughts!
