These door decoration options are great because they can be used to create a captivating entrance, and get your guests in the Christmas mood. The bonus is that you can put together this lovely door addition by using Dollarwise products, household and outdoor items. And all for a very low cost! Here are two great options and all the items you will need to bring them to life.

Festive Green Wreath

Are you looking to make a Christmas wreath that showcases the beauty of the outdoors? Then consider weaving together evergreens, pine cones, cinnamon sticks, and holly berries into a beautiful piece that you can use to welcome your Christmas guests for the season. First, cut and arrange greenery that you collect from your backyard or nearby park in a wire wreath frame that you can purchase at your local Dollarwise. You should also secure all the items with green string so as to camouflage the string in your greenery.

Second, arrange and glue pine cones, cinnamon sticks and holly berries that you can find outdoors (or purchase) using a hot glue gun and glue sticks. Next, weave a set of white or coloured string lights through the wreath. Be sure to hide the battery switch in the back of the wire form so that it is not visible. Finally, once all the items have dried, hang your wreath up on your front door and switch on the lights once the evening comes. Not only will your guests love the welcoming decor, but they will likely enjoy the fresh forest look as well as the sweet smell of cinnamon and pine greenery. Those scents are sure to remind them of the holiday.
