Festive Front Door

IMG_0694.jpg

Nothing exudes Christmas spirit like decorating your front door with festive flare! Say goodbye to inflatable Santa’s (this is not the Macy’s Christmas Parade!) and rather say hello to a classy winter front-door décor that will welcome your guest with holiday cheer!

Would you believe that all of the greenery was purchased at Canadian Tire? I have to say, their holiday collection has been on point for the last few years. Not only stylish, but budget friendly too!

The planters were purchased at Alphaplantes in Griffintown. Originally, they were a bland beige color, which we opted to spray paint an attractive glossy black, to tie in with the front door. A mix of various synthetic tree branches, mini logs and garland were gathered at the core of the planter. Acorns and red Christmas balls were added for a pop of colour and texture.  The battery operated plastic lanterns were securely fastened at the top of the planter, providing height and visual interest. During the evening, the candle exudes a warm & inviting glow. *Design tip: Make sure to select lanterns that are suitable for outdoor use, in order to avoid tarnishing with our unpredictable harsh winter weather!

There you have it; a fun & festive DIY project that adds a classic holiday touch to your front door. The total cost was slightly under $215; including the planters which were a steal! This arrangement can be used for many more holiday seasons to come! Happy crafting :-)
