The countdown to Christmas has well and truly begun and if you have yet to decorate your home for the festivities, what are you waiting for?
Santa will be here before you know it and if he can’t fit through the chimney or you don’t have one, he will need to come through your front door. Make sure you dress it in time for his arrival otherwise you may end up on his naughty list!
We have three fantastically festive ways that you can create a very Merry Christmassy composite door…
Display a Christmas wreath
Wreaths were first used and hung up on doors in Roman times to signify victory and they’re still around now and most typically displayed on doors at Christmastime.
If you have the crafts skills you could have a go at making your own wreath or take the easier route and buy a fake or real wreath online or from the high street. A real wreath is obviously more authentic, but it will need a lot of looking after.
Most Christmas wreaths will contain things like baubles, fairy lights, pine cones, red coloured ribbon etc. – to get an idea of the type of wreaths we’re talking about click here.
Add a bow to the door
You may consider a wreath to be a little old-fashioned and want to emulate the latest trend of adding a big bow to your door.
It has to be red of course to match Santa’s suit and it must also be able to withstand the weather as you don’t want it being blown away or becoming snow damaged – check that the bow is sturdy!
Bows will be everywhere this winter.
Install a sprinkle of fairy lights
It isn’t just your Christmas tree that should be covered in a string of lights.
You could very easily install some fairy lights around the door frame that emit either a white or red colour. Battery-powered lights are probably the best option as then you don’t have to worry about connecting them to the inside of your house.
Let the children in the house switch them on at night as it’s guaranteed to give them a Christmassy kick.
If you need a new front door and Santa doesn’t bring you one, you can always get your local Residence Collection installer to sort one out for you.
