I love decorating for the holidays because it kicks off the most wonderful time of the year! I especially enjoy decorating my front door, which serves as a warm welcome for our guests during the holiday season. This year, I wanted to create a rustic and layered look for my front door using a variety of potted plants, vintage elements and lots of greenery! Luckily, this look is very easy to recreate if you follow the tips below!
Hang a Perfectly Sized Wreath on the Door
For this specific look, I was searching for a simple, yet eye-catching wreath. I love the wintry mix of pine branches, pinecones and tallow berries. This wreath was the perfect size – which is essential when selecting the right wreath for your front door. You want something that spans most of the width of the door in order to create a full look.
Group Tables of Varying Heights and Materials
In order to achieve a layered look, you’ll need to round up assorted of tables of varying heights. I ended up using tables and a wooden planter (which I turned upside down) that I already had around my house. Using different materials — such as the ceramic garden stool, wooden planter, and antique brass side table — adds another layer of depth and yields a more eclectic look.
Display Pre-Lit Trees for an Inviting Entry
For Christmas, I always opt for classic white lights, so these faux pre-lit trees were the perfect addition to my holiday look! They come in three different sizes, and the best part is that they have a timer. These festive trees added the perfect bit of warmth with their soft white glow.
Add Vintage Elements to Create Texture
To complete the rustic look, I added these beautiful, weathered decorative bells. I love the texture of the bells, and they helped offset the white doors and entry.
Add a Handful of Potted Plants for a Full Look
Finally, you should gather a variety of clay pots. I planted about four or five with a mix of flowers and greenery. Potted plants are a wonderful way to fill in gaps and finish the look!
