4 Tips for New Year’s Eve Front Door Decorating

Happy New Year! Champagne toasts, confetti and party hats are in order. Greet guests with a glam front door update that won’t fade at the stroke of midnight. Here are a few quick tips, tricks and ideas.


Skip the traditional garland and frame your door in tulle. It’s a very affordable material and adds a lot of depth and glitz. Be sure to add lights! (Hint: this is a great way to get a little more mileage out of your Christmas strands).

Fill topiary planters with sand to secure a cage. Wrap in tulle and add glitzy accents. When decorating with topiary on the front porch, it is recommended to use two, one for each side of the door.

Hint: Keep a bucket of sand for decorating. It comes in handy to add weight to lighter objects.
