How To Make A Garland Frame Your Front Door

Disclosure

I absolutely love to decorate our front porch for the different seasons. It’s a great way to greet guests, but it also brings in the perfect amount of seasonal cheer! This year, I wanted to try my hand at a pretty garland framing our front door. It’s as lovely as ever….

I just love it! It creates the warmest welcoming, and it focused your attention on the door. So, here’s how to make a garland frame your front door!

Here’s what I started with…

To hang the fresh Juniper tree clippings around the door, I used these Command Brand Outdoor Light Clips

I spaced them evenly along the trim…

And then used fresh cut Juniper clippings from my parents yard…

 I began clipping them in place…

And kept adding the branches to each clip as I went along the trim of the door…

Eventually I made my way around the entire door…

Once all of the clippings were in place, I went back to trim off any long stems that were sticking out…

With that, the garland was done! 

 If you’re a frequent reader, ( πŸ™‚ ) you probably know how much I LOVE to use fresh clippings from trees throughout the entire year. Thank goodness for Juniper trees, because they are the perfect tree to use as a fresh garland around our door…

And I love, love, love our wreath this year. I made it just like this one

It adds the perfect pop of color in comparison to the fresh greenery, making the front door really stand out.

And, I kept out our huge welcome sign. It’s the perfect fit….

I love the view so much, I’ve been coming in through the front door rather than the garage. Pitter patter goes the heart… beat… beat… πŸ™‚

And here’s a few good things to know about those fabulous little clips…

  • Command Outdoor adhesive strips are water- and UV-resistant and designed to withstand all weather conditions such as rain, snow and extreme temperatures.
  • They are damage-free and easy to use over and over again with refill strips so you can take them down after the holidays and re-use them for seasonal outdoor dΓ©cor throughout the year.
  • Command Brand Products are available at home centers and mass merchandise, drug and craft stores nationwide and are also available online.

That garland is my favorite… but just wait to see what I added next…. here’s a sneak peek, and I’ll be sharing more about it on Wednesday!

  1. Your doorway looks beautiful—nothing like fresh greens! And the wreath is so pretty, too.

    I’m inspired by the Command hooks. Do they stick on a lot of types of surfaces? We have stone around our exterior door. I would love to do this! Thank you!

    1. Thank you so much, Jane! I love the Command hooks! They stick great, as long as they are on a smooth surface. If your stone is bumpy or rough, they probably won’t stick that great. I hope that helps! πŸ™‚

  2. Your home and style is so pretty! I’d not heard of the outdoor command clips ( waterproof weather proof) so I will run out of time but saw wreaths hung by ribbon onto shutters. I wish I could organize my brain to do all that is swirling around inside!!!! Glad to see your pretty door.
