Today's post is special to me because I get to share with you my new front door for the first time and how I've decorated it for Christmas. While I was sad to see my old black door go, it was time. I had originally planned to paint this door black but once it was installed I fell in love with the white.
I first thought of buying a fresh wreath at Costco (those are so gorgeous and for only $16.00 you can't beat them!) but I couldn't find one that wasn't loosing a lot of needles so I rethought that option. Later that day I went to Michaels and found a white wreath for under $3.00 and then it hit me! I was decorating the inside this year in whites, reds and black so I decided to continue the look outside. I found this ribbon at Michaels as well and the chalkboard look sold me (plus, it was less than $2.00 so, bingo!).The week before I bought a tube of red ornaments at Joann Fabrics for about $10.00 so I was all set.I made a wreath bow (I'll have a full tutorial on how you can make the perfect bows for wreaths, gifts and more on Wednesday so I hope you'll come back to check it out!).....and wired some ornaments together....and then attached those to the wreath.I also added some red jingle bells from the Dollar Store and faux red berries to finish things off.
I really love the way it turned out. It was easy to make, thrifty - less than $10 total and it looks perfect on my new front door! So now for the rest of the Home for the Holidays tour - nothing overwhelming but so much beautiful inspiration. Be sure to check out all of the other ideas below and thank you so very much for stopping by - I can't tell you how much it means to me.
