Inventive Front Door Décor Ideas

Diane Smith is on the blog today to share some ideas about dressing up your front door. I love new Spring and Summer ideas and this one is just a great idea.

Are you looking for a creative way to freshen up the outdoor decor of your home? If so, what’s a better way to add a pop of colour and liveliness, than to adorn the front door with some beautiful creative pieces? From colourful flowers, and monogrammed inscriptions, all the way to rustic pieces, your front door could look wonderful, with just a little bit of your creativity and craft.

Monogram doors
If you’re looking for a way to personalize your front door and adorn it at the same time, decorate it with monograms. If you’re crafty, imaginative and love to make decor yourself, feel free to make a monogram on your own, and add a personal touch to it. With a piece of hardboard, a pattern and a handsaw, you’ll have the best monogram in the neighbourhood. You can use fabric, twine, moss, sea glass, or shells to cover the letter and make an impeccable embellishment for your home. On the other hand, you can also buy a pre-made monogram, and turn your front door into a cute unique entrance.

Flower decoration
What better way to add a hint of spring, and make the home welcoming, than to add some flower power to your front door. Add an umbrella to the mix and the flowers can really make your front door unique. An umbrella doesn’t have to be just a defence tool against rain. Now, you can use an old umbrella to transform it into an attractive container that will perk up your door. After you close it, tie a ribbon around it and fill its pockets with tissue paper. Pick out various flowers, and tuck them in on top of it, to create the perfect arrangement.

Furthermore, you can also mix flowers with other objects, such as a basket. Mix pussy willow buds with white tulips, to design a gorgeous embellishment for aqua blue or pastel green front doors. Easter is one of the most festive days of the year, so consider adding artificial eggs in light blue, pink and yellow; tie a white or blue ribbon on the basket handle, and hang it on the door. What’s more, use a basket with a flat side, because it will lay flat against the front door, without the risk of falling down due to the constant door opening.

Vintage design
A chalkboard door sign would be a great solution for decorating the front door. The best thing about it is that you can paint any item that comes to your mind, and hang it on the front door. Put an inscription of your choice on it, and you’ll have a unique yet interesting front door embellishment. Paint the interior of a tray with chalkboard paint, write “Welcome” on it, and hang it on the front door for an exquisite front door adornment.

Instead of having a plain and dull front door, add a vintage decor to it to make it exceptional. Consider placing a watering can with flowers, and transform a plain entrance into a fabulous door. You can use tulips, peonies, roses, gerbera and any other flowers of your choice and place it in the watering can. With a small ribbon you could tie it in a bow, and attach it to the watering can to craft a gorgeous arrangement. A watering can will both look good, and be practical as well. Namely, if you lock yourself out of the house, a spare key in the watering can will be a lifesaver. Alternatively, a locksmith from Parramatta would be the best solution for any door malfunction you come across.

Decorate your front door with some of the previously mentioned ideas to make it special and trendy. Regardless of the décor you choose, your home will look much more welcoming once you add a few decorations to it, than if you leave it plain and dull.
