No matter the holiday, you can pretty much bet our holiday door decor will be colorful! This year, I decorated on our front porch with a few custom Christmas door decorations.
While our pink front door makes quite the statement on it’s own, it’s also the perfect backdrop for an extra pop of color! In this case, that comes in the form of a flocked outdoor Christmas garland, jumbo sisal trees, and life-size gold nutcrackers.
I mean, if this front door Christmas decor doesn’t say happy holiday season, then I don’t know what does!
DIY Rainbow Sisal Trees Wreaths
Admittedly, the double pink doors with Christmas wreaths makes us soo happy! I originally planned to use wreath forms to make a custom front door wreath.
Instead, I opted for the easier route and added colorful mini sisal trees to flocked wreaths from At Home. So this Christmas wreath idea is more of a hack than a DIY because I am simply adding on to a store-bought wreath.
Here’s how I made these:
1 — With a hot glue gun, attach fake snow fluff and bottle brush trees onto the branches of a flocked or green wreath.
2 — Rather than a big tradtional bow on each wreath, I tied an extra-long piece of red ribbon onto the bottom of each for an extra pop of color. And you’ve got a custom door hanging! I love them SO much!
Colorful Front Door Christmas Decor Ideas
I got giant nutcrackers from At Home and spray painted then solid gold to match our sconces.
Since we’re doing an unconventional color scheme, I like that they feel classic in gold but can be mixed and matched. You could easily paint them to go with any of your holiday decor.
These giant light-up Christmas lights were a lucky find when I was out buying spray paint! They originally had dark green tops on them, but I primed them with shellac and spray painted the tops gold to match the nutcrackers.
They come with a hook for easy hanging on garland wreaths, and I just used a piece of colorful ribbon to complete the look.
Our DIY Sisal Trees
By far my favorite part of our whole outdoor setup are the giant sisal trees! I almost fell over when I spotted them in Hobby Lobby! They don’t have them listed online. But they only come in black and white with a black metal pole and base.
We actually cut the poles down so that they could be staggered at different heights. And we spray painted the white bristles in different colors. Honestly, I wish I would’ve bought more for a massive spread of giant bottle brush Christmas trees, haha!
To tie in the colors of the jumbo sisal trees, we spray painted sets of shatterproof ornaments in matching colors for the garland. We made a mixture of teal, yellow, pink, and red ornaments to stand out on the flocked garland.
Since there is ice, snow, or reason for ice skates in Houston, I added my own snow fluff. I tucked it into the tops of the sisal trees, around the garland, and on the door wreaths for added texture.

And because someone always asks, our front door color is “Pink Mimosa” by Behr! As for our front door Christmas decor, I love that it gives a perfect holiday vibe without being your token Christmas color combination. What do you think?!
