07 Dec Getting Your Composite Door Ready for Christmas
This year may have been mixed up, to say the least, and with Christmas just around the corner, it’s finally time to decorate your home, to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year!
Of course, you want to turn the inside of your home into a cosy winter wonderland, yet nothing says ‘welcome to our home’ more than adding a touch of Christmas spirit to your front door.
Here at Chase Garage Doors, we want to help you get into the spirit of Christmas, so read below for some of our top tips on how to get your composite front door ready for Christmas!
Add Some Snowflakes
Why not create a winter wonderland on your doorstep, by hanging some paper or plastic snowflakes across the door? These can add a simple, yet effective touch to the front of your home.
You could leave it at that, or you could add some lights, bows, tinsel or even fake snow, for a more Christmassy effect.
If you have children, big or small, this can also be a great half-term activity to keep them occupied. They can make some paper snowflakes out of coloured card and paper – it’ll keep them quiet for hours, whilst you have a cup of tea, promise!
Hanging a Wreath
It’s a key part of outdoor Christmas decor – the wreath. Yet how do you hang one without drilling a hole that leaves you with a huge eye saw once the festivities are over? Ways to do this include;
Hang a Ribbon (With a Door Knocker)
If you have a door knocker on your composite door, simply use a ribbon to attract your wreath to the door knocker. With a range of festive ribbons available from high street stores, you can easily create a standout feature that compliments your front door.
Hang a Ribbon (Without a Door Knocker)
As mentioned above, the last thing you want to do is be drilling holes and forcing nails and screws into it. Using a ribbon can again be an effective alternative.
However, if you don’t have a door knocker to hang the wreath from, you can feel almost lost as to where you can attach it. Yet, we have an answer;
- Cut a long piece of ribbon and attach one end to your wreath by tying a tight bow,
- Take the other end and place this over the top of your door, ensuring that the wreath hangs at your desired height on the front of your door,
- Tie the ribbon which is hanging over the inside of the door to a stick-on hook.
Wrap it Up with a Bow
A great alternative to hanging a wreath on your door is wrapping it up in a ribbon, by using a thick long ribbon, forming a cross and tying a bow in the middle.
Attach Window Stickers for a Simple, Yet Festive Touch
If you’re not artistic, or if you’re looking to just add a simple touch of Christmas festivity, why not add some window stickers? You can find these easily in most highstreet home stores and garden centres, and they’re available in a wide variety of different themes.
All you need to do is choose where on the window you’d like them and once Christmas is over, simply peel them off.
When Should You Take Down Your Christmas Decorations?
If you are looking to go by tradition, then you Christmas decorations should come down on the twelfth night after Christmas Day – so, the 6th of January.
However you choose to decorate your composite front door, the team here at Chase Garage Doors hope that you have a fantastic festive period and the merriest Christmas! Here’s to an excellent 2021, full of prosperity and joy.
