Some ideas for decorating a front porch door include adding prairie grills to the door, painting it a bright, welcoming color, accenting it with a pair of lanterns and gilding the edges. Other ideas are decorating it with a flower-filled umbrella, adding a rustic watering can or hanging a letter monogram.
Front porch doors can also be decorated seasonally. For instance, an individual can hang a thin wicker basket boasting a spray of real or artificial flowers during the spring and summertime and switch to a wreath made of fall leaves during the autumn. She can add some corn husks or hay bales and pumpkins to the sides of the door and porch to complete the theme.
Those who want a unique door decoration can grab an umbrella, wrap a ribbon around it in the closed position and stuff the edges of the material with flowers, wheat sprigs or other items. Finally, hang the umbrella up at the hooked handle. For a more subtle, elegant touch, opt instead for a letter monogram. One option is to by a cardboard letter and paint and sand it to perfection, or wrap it in twine and decorate it with flowers and ribbons. Attaching a simple chalkboard can be a good way to write messages to neighbors or other members of the house.
