Wreaths are not the only way to dress up a door many other items can be used to spice up a plain front entry. For the holidays try a flag pinned to the front door, red white and blue stars hanging from a wire hanger, or a big red white and blue bow. If you have children that want to get involved in summer door decorations make bright colored door decorations with Popsicle sticks! Paint the sticks with craft paint and glue them into shapes and designs that can be hung from a wire hanger or nails.
Fall Door Décor
Wreaths in warm colors and prints are a staple ideas for fall door décor. Real branch and hay wreaths can also make a great statement in fall; bare or decorated. A great alternative to the traditional wreaths are decorations made from branches, fall leaves and pine cones. Try stringing them together with fishing line and hanging vertically. For Halloween don't forget to get out the spooky supplies. Fake cobwebs, Halloween themed wood carved art, pumpkins and even a bag of fake garlic to hang on the door handle. Gluing small plastic pumpkins to a wreath base would make for an adorable piece of October door art. For thanksgiving, trace your children's hands to make Turkeys and they can even decorate themselves with markers, glitter and embellishments. Another great do it yourself project; string a few fall leaves from a wire hanger. Another great one to get your kids involved in.

You can make great Christmas crafts to decorate the door! Two fun ones for kids; Fold coffee filters in half and cut holes in the fold side. Open for a beautiful snowflake design that can be attached to the front door. Or go all out and turn your entire door into a wrapped gift using dollar store wrapping paper and ribbon.
Spring Door Décor
Spring is my favorite Season and I love spring door décor. In spring I usually go back to the classic decoration of a wreath. I choose pastels or neon colors with a trendy design or lots and lots of spring flowers. Another great option for spring is a wicker basket or cone with silk flowers flowing out of the top. A few great spring flowers; daisies, tulips and lilacs. I have also seen some very crafty friends cut a small watering can in half and hang it from ribbon or a nail on their door. They then filled it with bright colored flowers and foliage. More great spring door décor ideas; small flags with spring flowers, carved wood art or bright colorful ribbons. Kid friendly door décor projects; If your child is old enough to sew with a needle by hand, sew together lots of silk flowers that have been cut close to the bud with fishing line and attach them around door frame. During the Easter holiday, make a wreath by gluing pastel colored plastic eggs to a wreath base. You could even use a wire hanger that has been bent into a wreath shape for a do it yourself option.
