Welcome December: Cozy And Cheerful Home Ideas

“Hello, December! May this month be filled with the joy of the time spent with family and friends. May peace fill your home and your heart. May hope be your security blanket. May love be the most precious gift that you receive and give.” Willy Nywening

Welcome December: Magical Front Door Decorating Ideas

Christmas front door

I am excited to share our 2022 front door decorating for Christmas with you. I went with more of a glam-neutral woodland theme; deer, lots of greenery, and splashes of gold and silver.



Here is the 5-step formula I used for this year’s decor:

  • Front door wreath + garland coordinating (we DIY-ed plain wreaths and garland by adding the ornaments we wanted on there).
  • Faux tree on each side of the door and placed inside a seagrass basket.
  • Layered, neutral doormats.
  • Woodland animals
  • Lanterns

Shop the look by tapping on the images below:
