When you live in an apartment, it’s not always possible to put a wreath on your front door. But as the first impression for guests and the last thing you see before heading out into the world, the entryway is one of the most important areas of your home. So when it came to bringing Christmas cheer to our foyer (yes, we said fo-yay), Gwyneth and I weren’t willing to compromise. Here’s how we made it work.
Since we use the peephole, it would have been impractical to put our wreath on the inside of our front door. (Safety first, friends!) Instead. we used one of our Dumpster Dive frames and some leftover trim from our Euroshams to hang our wreath just inside the door. The wreath itself is a DIY. Because we didn’t already have a traditional wreath and didn’t want to buy one, we wrapped an old twig wreath with garland.
Then we set up a little entryway vignette that’s pretty and festive, yet practical. (More on our holiday vignettes here.)
Lastly, we doctored up an old Pottery Barn mistletoe ball with the last of our berry garland and a bow and hug it from the ceiling between our entryway and kitchen.
And that’s the last of our small space holiday decorating! If you’re catching up, here’s where you can check out our tree and mantle, vignettes and DIY ornaments. And all our small space and budget-friendly holiday decorating, outfit and gift ideas are here on our holiday tab!
