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.

This copy-cat version of a real evergreen wreath is the perfect wreath, without all the pine needle fallout.

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.
