Candy Cane Poles at Yellow Dog DesignChristine of Yellow Dog Design created an eye-catching and most fun front porch and Christmas door decoration display. Mary and I love Christine's candy poles.
To make the candy poles (in the photo above), Christine used six-inch PVC pipe which you can purchase at local home supply stores.
She spray painted them white to cover the writing and graphics that are stamped on the PVC. Then she used hot glue to fasten the ribbon onto the PVC. To finish the candy poles, she glued large colorful ball-shaped ornaments onto the tops.
Christmas Decorating TipPVC is relatively inexpensive and comes in various diameters. You can cut it to length easily with a hack saw and paint it any color. You can also purchase PVC joints like elbows to turn it into a candy cane shape.
You can drill holes into the PVC, paint the PVC colors of your choosing, insert a light string, and create a fun lighted decoration. Connect lengths to create a frame with l-joints and frame your front door. Fun!
photo courtesy of Yellow Dog DesignTo stabilize the poles, Christine placed the PVC poles in urns and used stones for weight to keep the PVC in place. If you don't have urns, another option is to use buckets or large pots (which you could decorate) partially filled with sand, rocks, or stones.
The remaining display consists of lighted garland complete with candy canes and ornaments along with a complementary front door wreath delightfully decorated with snowflakes and a blue bow.
Notice how the blue in the bow coordinates with the color of the ribbon on the pole - nice touch.

Christine's Merry Christmas sign hanging above the wreath adds a warm greeting for family and friends.
Shiny Little Boxes - Words On WheelsDebbie of Words On Wheels shared this truly fun Christmas door decoration idea that kids will surely love!

She gathered materials for her display months in advance, saving little boxes and wrapping them over time.

Themes can make porch decorating a bit easier and can be used as the basis of decorating year round.
Choose a central subject like Debbie did or even a color. You can then incorporate it into wreaths, outdoor cushions, outdoor wall art, and other decorative items.
Add Fresh Greenery to a Faux Wreath
Make a purchased wreath more fresh and special by adding a few fresh elements. Dave and I made this Christmas door decoration for our front door.
Charming Red Plaid - Cuisine KathleenKathleen of Cuisine Kathleen also uses a theme on her front porch. From the red plaidribbons on the front door wreath and garland strand to outdoor cushions and throws, Kathleen dresses her porch in this colorful classic plaid color.

Debbie Dabble Loves Christmas!Debbie of Debbie Dabble doesn't have a typical porch but that doesn't stop her from decorating her front door.

Debbie used burlap to create a bow, added a pair of skates, some greenery, and a red bell to make a very appealing decoration beside the front door.

A Starfish Cottage ChristmasKristy of tarfish Cottage knows you don't have to have snow to decorate for Christmas. Creative, Kristy used palm fronds along with holly, pine cones, berries, evergreens and a starfish to make this crafty front door basket as a Christmas door decoration.
photo courtesy of Starfish CottageAlso note the scarf-type bows on the garland and basket, a nice deviation from standard bows. We like the clean and festive look Kristy created and is a good example that you don't have to have a lot of decorations to make an impact.
