My Holiday Door Wreath Alternative

wreath alternative for front door

We spoke last week about the trendy vs the traditional, and although I admitted that my holiday decorating scheme this year is fairly classic, something about this year made me feel like not using a wreath on our door at all.

It all started about three weeks ago when I saw these little wicker deer heads on the wall at my local craft store.  I thought it was still so classic and woodsy, but felt really updated and new as well.  With a crisp, white scarf around his neck, he isn’t quite specific to any holiday, but come this December, I’ll be tying a plaid scarf around him and then he’ll definitely have a cozy Christmas charm about him, no?  (spoiler alert, there will be lots of plaid in my holiday decor this year)

It’s clear that I’ve already determined he’s a male deer head, but he should probably have a name, too.  I’ll think on that one!

I’m not going to lie, you guys are the only people who even see my front door.  Since we live on a farm, nobody walks by, and our driveway leads visitors to the back door, but there is still something about decorating the front that I can’t give up!

I’ve you’re interested in your very own deer head, I cannot find it online anymore (check your local Joann’s!) but World Market has a pretty cute version too!

Do you like the change from a regular wreath?

    I like the wreath alternative! But, I’m really commenting because our Asta rug from Grandiflora arrived tonight and we LOVE IT. I’m pleased with the quality and it makes our office look so much more pulled together. Thanks so much!! Our house would be all set, if you could just add some side tables, a coatrack, some light fixtures and a bar cart to your collection. :)

    I love him! He should be called Frank (like Frankincense)!
