With Christmas right around the corner, the time to dress up your home with holiday décor is now. Not only does picking out the perfect tree and hanging up stockings up your festive vibe, it helps you and your family create memories you’ll cherish for years to come.
Hanging up ornaments and other Christmas accents inside your home can be exciting, but dressing up the exterior of your home is debatably just as fun. One of the most tried and true outdoor seasonal décor staples are front-door Christmas decorations—whether you lean toward evergreen garland, a bold wreath, a simple vinyl sticker or something in between.
If you’re looking for holiday inspiration, here are some of our favorite picks for front-door Christmas decorations during the holiday season.
1. Round door Christmas hanger
This festive door hanger adds a rustic, farmhouse-chic touch to the front door. Each door hanger is made of wood to order, which means each version is unique. Reviewers say this hanger ships fast, making it an excellent last-minute buy for this holiday season. Choose between a white, black, navy, or dark walnut wood base, along with a selection of burlap or plaid bows.

If you’re more into classic decorations, this traditional-style Christmas wreath featuring faux red berries, miniature pinecones, and artificial snow-sprinkled evergreens will appeal to you.

4. Be Merry vinyl door decal
Vinyl decals make sound tacky, but this understated one, simply reading ‘Be Merry,’ is a chic and contemporary way to dress up a front door. Handmade in a matte finish, the decal is easy to apply and remove—just peel and go. You can even choose from tons of font colors, including shades of blues, greens, reds, and metallic gold and silver.

5. Vermont white spruce foliage wreath
If you’re not a DIY crafter and/or you don’t have a real evergreen tree in the house of the yard to clip foliage from for a wreath, this Balsam Hill wreath makes a delightful substitute. While its pine needles are artificial, the wreath uses Balsam Hill’s True Needle technology to create a realistic accent. Its LED string lights are battery operated with a built-in timer—six hours on and 18 hours off.

6. Reindeer, snowman, and Santa Claus wreath
This playful Christmas wreath features cutesy plush reindeer, snowman, and Santa Claus. The wooden wreath comes with a natural-looking twine that makes hanging it on a hook an absolute breeze. While perfectly okay for outdoor use, many reviewers said they couldn’t help but show it off indoors.

7. Inner Peace wreath
Another simple and subtle choice that celebrates nature, this wreath shows off the shape of a peace sign. While it’s perfect for spreading holiday cheer, it can also be used well beyond the holiday season as a permanent decorative accent. Cortney Novogratz, who designed this piece with her husband Robert for The Novogratz Holiday Collection at CB2, says, “While the design is rustic and understated, the message speaks volumes."

Way more than a wreath, this fantastic door mural fabric door cover stretches over your door, similar to the way a mattress cover fits around a mattress. By not using a sticky adhesive, the cover doesn’t damage the door, and it’s reusable for years to come. Reviewers love the versatility of this decoration, saying it’s a great addition for both outdoor and indoor doors.
