Light the Way
Dress your entry in layers of greenery and lighting. Hang a wreath with red ornaments on the front door, drape pre-lit garland from the edge of the porch roof, and flank the front steps with live trees full of lights. Set DIY bucket luminaries on the steps, then place glowing lanterns high and low.
Get the holiday lodge look anywhere in your home with easy greenery projects. Lean a favorite holiday or winter object -- such as a vintage sled -- by your front door and adorn it with a cluster of greenery, ribbon, and ornament balls.
Greet with Joy
When family members and guests step inside, welcome them with an entry display that inspires a festive mood. Below a DIY message board, a simple console table holds lodge-look holiday decor, including plaid ribbon, woodland deer, and a small Christmas tree in a bucket. Add the woodsy garland to a table or Christmas tree.
Deck the Hearth
Nothing says lodge like a stone fireplace. Dress it for the holidays by hanging a pre-lit wreath decorated with poinsettias, acorns, berry picks, and colored ornament balls. Top the mantel with mini trees, LED candles, and greens. Decorative reindeer and a bronze floor lamp add to the outdoorsy mix.
Transform the Tree
Trim the perfect tree you brought home with multicolor lights and ornaments inspired by nature and tradition. Think poinsettias, pinecones, and plaids, plus owls, snowflakes, and frosted balls. Echo the plaids on the tree with red-and-black buffalo-check pillows. Then complement the tree with a wreath decorated with Christmas cards.
