You don’t have to have a grand veranda to have an impressive Christmas display on your front steps. That’s the message Kelly Marzka has for anyone who’s been neglecting the front door at Christmas time.
Kelly is an intrepid DIYer who writes about fixing up her home at View Along the Way. We were thrilled she agreed to participate in our Holiday Style Challenge. We sent Kelly and several other terrific bloggers each a mystery box of Christmas decorations. We asked them to show us the amazing holiday decorating ideas they came up with.
Kelly’s holiday door decorating ideas are perfect for anyone who feels like his or her front porch just isn’t worthy of Christmas love. She shows us how she took some simple garland, Christmas lights and poinsettias, and turned her home into a holiday showcase. Along the way, she shares some clever tips on making the most from your garland and how to make a unique holiday wreath.
Just like Santa, The Home Depot brought Christmas to our front door this year!
When I heard we were assigned to decorate our front door for the Holiday Style Challenge this year, I was a little skeptical. We don’t have much going on in the way of front porches, or even any overhead awning for shade. Just a tiny stoop. Our front door is Tiny Tim, a Christmas underdog who just wants to celebrate the season despite not having much to offer.
But The Home Depot sent us some fun Christmas-y delight and we got to work dressing up Tiny-Tim-the-front-stoop with garlands and greenery and a DIY monogram wreath.
Here’s how it looks all dressed up for the season:
I have “a thing” for fresh greenery, can you tell?
