Hang a nicely created garland on the door

Since your front door makes way for your guests to enter the house and says the first hello to them, it surely deserves some stunning decorations.

And when it comes to giving special attention to your front door and porch, you can easily do that by being simple yet extremely stunning.

Create a garland from fresh greenery, pine cone and pine twigs, and deck it with Christmas ornaments.

If you want your garland to have that traditional Christmas feel, go for red and white Christmas ornaments. Drape the garland in such a way that it can effectively outline your front door.
