One of our favourite events of the year and the season of winter is coming up! You guessed it, we’re talking about Christmas. Christmas is a time to spend in peace and harmony, with your family and your closest friends. You might be thinking of hosting a few Christmas parties this year, or you may be going to a few. Either way, you will want to welcome the festivity into your heart and into your home! An easy way to accomplish this is by creating some Christmas door wreaths, to decorate your home with. That’s why we have collected 25 Christmas door decorations which are all amazing. This way you will be able to find something perfect for your front door!
1. An Adorable Reindeer – With an Iconic Red Nose
Take inspiration from the celebration itself and all the myths surrounding it! For example, a story about Christmas includes Santa Claus visiting each house to drop off a present for the child or children living there. He travels around the world on a sleigh which is pulled by his reindeer. Rudolf is the best-known reindeer, thanks to his red nose. Why not use Rudolf then as inspiration for your Christmas front door wreath? Wrap your wreath in brown material, then add antlers to it as well as a red nose!
2. Keeping it Stylish – Christmas Door Decorations
Make sure that your wreath looks stylish and fabulous, feeling fully prepared for Christmas! If you have always preferred using natural elements to decorate with, then this wreath might just be for you! Firstly, you will need to create or buy the base of your wreath. Then it’s time to attach all sorts of little bits of nature to it with the help of a glue gun. This can include some fir leaves, cinnamon sticks, pinecones and sprigs of berries! Naturally, feel free to include some Christmas tree ornaments for an even more Christmassy vibe!
3. Bright in White – Using Pale Shades
Maybe you’d like to capture the glistening snow of winter and Christmastime! Build the base of your wreath from twigs and branches, then spray them in a coating of white paint. After allowing it to dry, you can start adding ornaments to your wreath, to give it a wonderful Christmas look. Make sure to add some pale coloured Christmas tree ornaments! You can also attach some artificial white flowers to it as well for an even more stunning look. Thanks to the flowers being fake, they won’t ever wilt. So you will be able to use the wreath during next year’s Christmas as well!
4. A Miniature Christmas Tree – Cute for Christmas
When you think of Christmas, what sorts of thoughts or images come to your mind? One of these images might be a Christmas tree! If so, then why not replace a standard wreath with a miniature Christmas tree for your front door decoration? We’re not talking about actually hanging a Christmas tree from your front door, instead, you can sew one out of green material. Then attach some tree ornaments to it as well as wrapping a string of fairy lights around it. This will help in giving your fabric tree the Christmas ambience you are going for!
5. A Christmas Elf – Christmas Door Wreaths
Another cute idea would be to add one of Santa’s little helpers to your Christmas wreath. After decorating the base of your wreath with ribbons, snowflakes and Christmas tree ornaments, it’s time to add a toy resembling a small elf. Santa Claus is known to have many elf helpers, who work all year round to make all sorts of presents for the children in the world. So it would only make sense to add a cute elf!
6. Pink and Gold – Fabulous and Groovy
When it comes to decorating and getting ready for Christmas, you might prefer sticking to traditional Christmas colours. These mainly include red, green, white, gold and silver. If you don’t want to follow classic decoration colours and styles this year. Instead, why not get creative with your colour choices and go for something fun and groovy? For example, a gorgeous pink! You can use a combination of pink and gold to decorate your front door wreath as well. Attach pink and gold ornaments to your wreath for a stylish look.
7. A Little Bit Stuck – Cute Christmas Door Decorations
We have already mentioned using a Christmas elf as a source of inspiration for your Christmas wreath. Well, here’s a funny way of creating an elf-inspired wreath, which will draw a smile on anyone’s face who comes to visit you during the holidays! First of all, you will have to put together the base of the wreath, attaching fir leaves and candy canes to it. Then you will need to stick an elf doll through the hole of the wreath as if it got stuck while crawling through.
8. Wonderful and Wintery – Silver and White
There is a whole variety of ideas for Christmas door decorations. You can use a story about Santa Claus and his reindeer for inspiration for the wreath, but you might consider using a wintery landscape as imagery to put together your front door decor. If you think about winter, you will want to channel the snowy atmosphere of the environment. To achieve this, use white and silver ornaments to attach to the wreath. For example, you can coat some pinecones in glittery pale paint and glue them to the wreath. Stunning Christmas tree ornaments will also make a great addition!
9. An Array of Ornaments – Christmas Door Wreaths
Get into a festive Christmas mood this year by creating your own front door wreath! What do you need for this idea? Buy an abundance of smaller sized Christmas tree ornaments as well as a foam wreath, for the base. Then you will need a glue gun, with which you will be able to stick the ornaments onto the foam base. You should start by sticking ornaments on the sides of the wreath, besides doing the front, exactly in the way it is demonstrated above!
10. Delivering the Christmas – A Simple Idea
Why not use the image of a truck delivering a Christmas tree to a family as an idea for your Christmas wreath? After creating the base of the wreath, which you can put together yourself out of twigs and branches, all you will need to do is attach a toy truck to it. Fixate it with a glue gun, and place a few fir leaves in the back of the truck, which will resemble the Christmas tree. Feel free to decorate it further with some ribbons or Christmas tree ornaments!
11. The Nativity Play – The Birth of Jesus
Reenact the birth of Jesus Christ on your Christmas wreath. After all, Christmas is the celebration of Jesus’ birth, so it would only make sense to use it as inspiration. An amazing way of recreating this on a wreath would be to place a small statue of the Nativity scene in the middle of the wreath. This should include the Virgin Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus in a crib as well as a few barn animals. Wrap a string of fairy lights around the top of the wreath, creating the night sky with the stars lighting it up. You might pin a large star ornament to the top, symbolising the Star of Bethlehem.
12. Santa Claus’ Suit – Christmas Door Wreaths
Have you run out of ideas concerning Christmas wreaths? Why not use Santa Claus’ suit as an idea for it? You will need to create a red wreath. This might mean wrapping red yarn all around the wreath but you might decide on glueing Christmas tree ornaments to it. Now all you will have to do is add the finishing touch to the wreath, which is no other than Santa’s belt. You can create the belt out of cardboard and painting it black, then sticking on the buckle of the belt, which can also be made out of cardboard!
13. Glamorous and Dazzling – Perfect in Pink
We have already mentioned using an unconventional colour for your Christmas wreath! You don’t necessarily have to use the traditional Christmas colours. A fantastic and glamorous combination to use for your wreath is pink and rose gold. You can create a luxurious wreath using an array of pink ribbons and rose gold tree ornaments. Don’t forget to add a small tag to your wreath wishing anyone who reads it a Merry Christmas!
14. A Festive Vibe – Christmas Door Wreaths
Here is a stylish wreath, which will definitely bring a sense of Christmas to your front door! It’s put together out of green and red tulle wrapped around the base of the foam. Then use Christmas tree ornaments to decorate it further, by attaching them to the wreath with a glue gun! By the end, you should have a very Christmassy wreath.
15. An Awesome Nutcracker – Whimsical and Magical
Perhaps you have read E.T.A Hoffmann’s tale of “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King”, which has been adapted into a ballet. The Nutcracker has become iconic, as well as a symbol of Christmas. Taking this into consideration, it would only make sense to use it for creating your wreath. All you need to do is attach a nutcracker on your wreath. Make sure that the nutcracker matches the rest of your wreath in design and colours!
16. A Winter Wonderland – Made out of Pompoms
We have touched upon the topic of using the winter landscape as a source of inspiration for your wreath. Attach an array of white pompoms to the base of your wreath, giving it a snowy ambience. Then stick a few miniature fir trees into the middle of the wreath as well as a small house. This is a stunning way of creating a winter wonderland as your front door decoration for Christmas!
17. Ornaments and Holly – Christmas Door Wreaths
You might prefer a simple design when it comes to Christmas decorations. Make a wreath using simple elements to achieve something gorgeous.

18. Christmas Pompoms – Red, White and Green
An easy material to work with is pompoms. You can glue an array of pompoms onto the wreath. Use a combination of green, red and white pompoms for a traditional Christmas look. You can add a small sign to the wreath as well, saying something along the lines of “Merry Christmas” or “welcome”.
19. Rustic and Earthy – Christmas Door Wreaths
Create your wreath using earthy elements. This might include sticks of cinnamon, small berries, nuts and foliage of fir leaves. Of course, you can add some ribbons tied into bows to the wreath, or some Christmas tree ornaments.
20. Wishing Everyone a Merry Christmas – Cute Door Hanger
Wish everyone who steps into your house a Merry Christmas! Accomplish this by placing a hanger on your front door. Why not cut out the shape of a Christmas tree ornament from cardboard. Then decorate it with wrapping paper and paint the words “Merry Christmas” on it.
21. Adding Some Jingle Bells – Fun and Festive
You will probably be familiar with the “Jingle Bells” song. It’s the sort of song which is always on the radio during the month of Christmas. You might use it as an idea for your front door decoration, by hanging some small bells from your wreath. These will jingle every time you open or close the front door!
22. Plaid Ornaments – Have a Very Merry Christmas
If you have your home styled in a rustic or farmhouse design, make certain that your Christmas door wreath incorporates the same essence!

23. Superb in Purple – Christmas Door Decorations
Purple is such a gorgeous colour, so why not use it in some sort of form for your Christmas wreath? You might attach a few purple Christmas tree ball ornaments to the wreath or just a few violet ribbons. Again, it’s up to you on how you want to style and design your wreath, so make sure you get creative!
24. Sticks of Cinnamon – And Orange Peels
When you bake during the winter, what ingredient do you find yourself using a lot? Perhaps it is cinnamon, which has a warming and rich taste. A fruit that goes with it is orange or mandarin! Attach orange peelings and cinnamon sticks to your wreath. Not only will this look earthy and amazing, but it will also give your front door a fantastic aroma.
25. The Grinch Who Stole Christmas – Christmas Door Wreaths
Have you seen the film How the Grinch Stole Christmas? If you did and you liked it, then you can use the main character as an idea for your wreath!

Of course, make sure you add a Santa cap to his head before placing it on your front door!
