When it comes to decorating my front door for Christmas, I usually just put up a wreath and call it good. But this year I thought it would be fun to come up with a few more festive ideas for the front porch of our new OGT studio! (It’s still sort of like a new toy!)
So I headed to Pinterest for some inspiration and found a million and one great ideas!
We don’t have a whole lot of room on the front steps of the OGT Studio, but I found a few fun things that worked!
I decided to stick with a traditional wreath for the door. I found this great, pre-lit one at Costco!
Then I added a stack of fake presents. I found the boxes at Walmart and the cute wrapping paper, ribbon, and giant bow at TJ Maxx.
Next I filled some Ikea lanterns that I’ve had for a few years with pine cones and glass ball ornaments. I also put out a few LED candles that I grabbed for 50% off at Michael’s this weekend! They’re remote controlled so I can easily turn all of them on (and off) at once.
Finally, I wrapped some burlap ribbon around the stair railings and topped them off with a green bow and some berry sprigs.
Turned out pretty cute, don’t you think?! :-) I couldn’t help just standing back and enjoying the view after it was all done. Looks so much more inviting!
Here is some more great inspiration for your own front door and porch!
