Christmas door arch decorations are getting a lot of festive love on Instagram, with #doorarch offering up almost 1.1K posts.
Making your own DIY Christmas decor is easier than you might think – this Christmas idea from Wilko is a quick and effective way of creating your own magical festive grotto.
Make a Christmas door arch decoration
You don’t need a whole host of kit to make this enchanting Christmas doorway arch, making it the perfect budget Christmas decorating idea. Just a selection of different sized baubles and some artificial flowers and foliage. Have fun!
What you’ll need
- Faux foliage garland
- Medium and large baubles
- Faux ponsettias
- Artificial berry sprigs
- Damage-free Command strips
1. Attach your Christmas garland
Attach the plain artificial foliage garland around the door frame. Extend the branches so they’re nice and full and drape over the doorway.
For a damage-free solution that won’t mark walls, use Command strips that can easily be removed after Christmas.
2. Add oversized baubles
Hang a selection of oversized baubles from the Christmas door arch decoration. Space them equally and alternate colours. Pick lightweight plastic baubles that won’t shatter if they fall off!
We used white and silver decorations for a sophisticated look, but you can go as bright as you dare! It is Christmas after all!
3. Arrange smaller baubles
Hang slightly smaller baubles from the artificial garland. Space them equally as before, nestling them among the oversized baubles. Make sure they are securely on the branches so they don’t slip off and bonk someone on the head.
4. Add the finishing touches
Add in final flourishes like artificial poinsettia flowers, berry clusters and frosted pinecones. Use the wire to wrap around the garland foliage to secure it in place, like you would making a normal DIY Christmas wreath.
Stand back and admire your finished Christmas door decor. The perfect backdrop for all those festive photos from now until New Year.
Once Christmas is over, you can simply dismantle your arch and keep the components safe until next year.
