Tis the Season to Deck Your Entryway

Decorating a home for the holidays takes on a new meaning once a person learns that family members are planning to visit. No one enjoys finding themselves scrambling, at the last minute, to come up with decoration ideas. As a guest’s arrival date gets closer decorating the entire house becomes less of an option. What do you do if you don’t have the time to go room-by-room? After all, isn’t having a tree enough?

Having a tree wins half the battle, at least in our eyes. If you are looking for that something extra…try decking your entryway. Wow your guests from the driveway, in addition to boosting your home’s curb appeal.

Below are a few adorably simple ideas to help you earn brownie points with your visitors.

Let’s start by playing it safe with a simple door wreath. Visiting your local craft store will get you well on your way to creating your masterpiece.Steps to make your own holiday reef

First, visit your local craft store to grab either a few decorative lanterns or birdcages, now head to your local dollar store to pickup some fantastically shiny ornaments. Glittery or reflective surfaces work best for this project. For extra pizzazz try looping a string of lights in with them.
