Welcome guests and delight passersby with a front entry dressed for the holidays. Choose the one that suits the style of your home.

Cheerful Colors

Holiday hues energize the clean lines of this California ranch. Set a cheerful tone by painting the doors bright red (Valspar Signature Art District, #ar226). The color fits the season and pops year-round against the handleset (#363136). For more door color, hang a ball wreath (#477282). Make any tree in your front yard a natural Christmas decoration by hanging ornaments on it. Low branches by the front walk are easiest for you to reach -- and for guests to see.

Star Treatment

Complement the character of a classic brick home by adding stars and greenery. A Craftsman-style door (Special Order) teams up with a handsome handleset (#315019) and a proper porch light (#180825) for year-round flair. Create a focal point by hanging a big star on high. Greet guests at the front door with this reindeer couple -- a buck (#477435) and a doe (#477436).

Christmas Bow Tying

Southwest-style home facade with Christmas decorations

Southwest, Naturally

Call attention to the graceful curve of an arched entry. Drape a drop cloth (#126319) over the stoop as Christmas bunting; tie the fabric into big bows. Maintain the Southwestern feel of your entry by incorporating a cactus plant or two in terra-cotta pots. Then decorate small evergreen trees in pots with bows and fruit ornaments.

More Ways to Say “Welcome!”

Make holiday guests feel special with a few extra front entry fix-ups.

Accent your address. Help guests find your home: Include clearly visible house numbers on or near the door, either ready-made digits or a fun DIY version.

Hear their arrival. Provide a working doorbell that’s easy to see or a stylish door knocker you can hear inside.

Fill your glass. If your entry door has glass panels or sidelights, use window film or DIY paint techniques to decorate the glass in faux stained-glass, etched, or frosted designs.

Send a message. Leave a holiday greeting for guests on or near your front door. It could be a card with a handwritten message, a chalkboard welcome sign, or a word spelled out in lights or garland.
