The 7 Items I Used to Create a Festive Front Door Moment

Looking at ALL our neighborhood outdoor decorations is one of my absolute favorite things about this time of year. They’re gorgeous to look at and I love the fact that we’re decorating for our communities to enjoy. While ours doesn’t include a laser light show, I’m super happy with the way our front door holiday decor design came to life this year.

It’s also worth noting that you don’t need a house or a yard to get into the spirit of things. Simply focusing on the front door makes a big festive statement, one that I really love to see in apartments, schools, or any place neighbors or community members walk by. A few well-placed holiday greens, some sparkling lights, and a beautiful wreath are all you need to make a big impact.

Here are the products I used for my front door holiday decor display. What I love about sourcing holiday decor from Terrain is that it’s classic and high-quality (meaning it will stay out of the landfill for decades to come!) AND you can style things differently year after year.

I love the sound this garland makes. Plus, adding twinkling lights to the gorgeous brass garland makes such a beautiful addition to a number of different applications for your holiday setup.


Faux Cedar Garland, Evergreen

$68 – $98

 This is my favorite garland to use when you want something super green! It pops against our black doors and was super easy to style. It’s high-quality as well, with no shedding!

 I went with matching wreaths for a cohesive look. Other wreaths I tried blended into our dark door. These wreaths look amazing!


Aged Iron Bow

Last year, this was our tree topper. I’m obsessed with how it looks used as a focal point for our front door. Plus, it hides the nail where the two ends of each garland are hooked.


Stargazer Lightorb, Large and Small


I used two of these lights on either side of our planters. These throw so much light and have a battery pack that can be set to a timer. They look so great in the snow, and I love how it’s a totally different way to bring twinkly lights into our front stoop without having to hang anything.


Slim Brass + Glass Lantern


 I found our lanterns at a craft store and paired them with outdoor LED candles. I love how it ties in with the Jingle Bell Stargazers and bow accents. They really pop from the street.

This year, I hung some of these from the center of the wreaths instead of bows. I LOVE how it turned out.
