#ad Great your guests with a frugal and festive front door this Christmas with holiday decor from Big Lots
A few months ago I had the privilege to preview the Big Lots holiday collections and let me say it was magical! You know I have been a Big Lots shopper for years and have often used things from their store in our holiday decor. This year I was so excited to add some new pieces from the Holiday Cottage collection into our home. I just love how this farmhouse style Christmas tablescape turned out.
Welcoming Layered Doormat Look for Christmas
I was recently in the store and just couldn’t help myself, I had to add more Big Lots Holiday items to our Christmas decor. There is a new front porch trend that I am loving, the stacked doormat look. So I knew I wanted to find a new Christmas coir doormat to swap out on top of my buffalo check rug. Gaa, I love it!
Next, I headed to the wreaths and garland aisle to find something to go on my front door. There are sooo many options. From traditional to chic, and if you liked any of the specific Bif Lots holiday collections, they have their own wreaths that coordinate. I will say I was a bit on overload with all the options.
Vine Bow is Unique Alternative to Wreath for Front Door
But one stood out to me, the Winter Wonder Lane Poinsettia & Berry Vine Bow. I love that this is not a traditional round wreath. The wire, grapevine and pine “bow” is a pleasant surprise. And you know what else was a pleasant surprise- a sale price! YAY! Usually, this bow would be $20, but it was on sale for $16 (yes a sale on Christmas decorations before Christmas, that’s just how Big Lots rolls!)
I decided that bow was definitely going home with me (although I was torn between the red version and the off white one). Now, you may know that my hubs is Mr. Christmas in this house. He LOVES decorating and especially putting up lights outside.
I found this great miro lights to add to the bow so that it wouldn’t be upstaged by the rest of the house lights. I really wanted the green wire so that it would be “hidden” when the lights (which are battery operated) are off. That meant the lights were green too, I again was pleasantly surprised with how much I like the final product.
To hang the vine bow on the front door, there is a ring on the back. I just added my own ribbon scraps- a little more buffalo check of course- to make a “hanger”. You could use a wreath hanger hook (yes they sell those at Big Lots too- and starting under $2 on sale right now!). Unless you are like me and those hangers don’t work with my front door.
So here’s my hack! I put a Command hook, upsidedown, on the back of the door at the top. Then I use fishing line to hang the wreath. Just loop a piece around the hook and put it up over the top of the door and loop it around the wreath on the other side.
Festive and Frugal Front Door for Under…
When I first entered the store I was thinking I would title this “Festive and Frugal Front Door Under $50”. But I came in WAY under $50, which makes my budget happy too. For just $31, I LOVE my new welcoming front porch decor for Christmas. Here’s the Big Lots shopping list for you. (And Rewards members, watch for loyalty coupons that will bring the price down even more.
