CRE­ATE A MERRY (Lit­tle) WEL­COME

Like an eye-catch­ing book cover, a fes­tive front door sets the tone for in­te­rior mer­ri­ment.

A rus­tic to­bacco bas­ket (birch­lane.com), fresh green­ery, and bright berries speak to tra­di­tion, while an over­size checked bow adds a touch of cheer­ful pat­tern. Use flo­ral wire to fas­ten green­ery in a neat bunch, and add pine cone ac­cents.

Mag­no­lia leaves and green­ery pair for sim­ple, nat­u­ral swag, while dried or­anges and pine cones add just a lit­tle color and tex­ture. Un­der­stated burlap rib­bon (pa­per­mart.com) bun­dles the bunch with a hap­pily hum­ble bow.

Sweet vin­tage wooden spools (berk­shireshop­girl.etsy.com) wrapped with an as­sort­ment of thread, baker’s twine, rib­bon, and rick­rack pro­vide pops of color and hint at the craft­ing and mer­ry­mak­ing hap­pen­ing just beyond the front door.

But of course the fam­ily’s most spir­ited fig­ure eighter would out­fit her door with fur-em­bel­lished ice skates filled with ever­green. A fluffy pom-pom “snow­ball” and mini sil­ver or­na­ments (con­sumer­crafts.com) round out the blade dis­play.
