5 Easy Ways to DIY Interior Door Holiday Decorations

With the holiday season fast approaching, it’s time to get your family in the spirit — and that starts with your home décor. However, if decking the halls feels overwhelming and you aren’t sure where to start, you’ve come to the right place. Rather than stressing over how to give your house a floor-to-ceiling makeover, focus on one simple part of your home that is easy to dress up: your doors!

These five DIY interior door holiday decorations are quick, easy and, best of all, you probably already have most of the necessary supplies on hand.


Wrapped and Ready

With a little wrapping paper and tape, you can transform your child’s bedroom door or the kitchen pantry door into a larger than life present. You can even add ribbon going across and a big bow in the center to really sell the visual. Look for an extra long wrapping paper roll so you won’t have to do two layers, and opt for painter’s tape to protect the finish on your door. Check out this tutorial for more tips.

Display the Joy

The interior doors of your home are the perfect place to display the dozens of holiday cards you receive from loved ones throughout the month of December. Tape a ribbon (or two) to the top and bottom of your door, then use clothespins to attach the cards as they come in. Or, if you’re feeling ambitious, you can create a display with a seasonal message like this one.

A Worthy Tradition

Sometimes, traditions are what they are for a reason — and wreaths and doors go together like peanut butter and jelly. This holiday season, you can always keep it simple and classy with a seasonal wreath hung on any of your interior doors with a wreath holder.

For the Kids

What better way to discourage your children from playing with the actual Christmas tree than by creating a felt doorway tree of their very own. Follow this tutorial for easy instructions and give one of your interior doors a playful makeover.

String It Up

Of course, one of the simplest DIY interior door holiday transformations only requires a strand of lights or garland around the frame. You can subtly secure either option with a few small pushpins and minimal effort.

Give one of the above suggestions a try and your home will be feeling more festive in no time.
