If your existing entrance is lacking wow factor, it’s time to think up new front door decor ideas. There are so many innovative, DIY-friendly ways to jazz up your exterior door (and the surrounding front stoop). An ornate wreath, hanging flower baskets, mosaic house numbers, and a gorgeous door knocker are all ways to enhance your home’s curb appeal and lift your spirits in a major way after a long day. “Never underestimate the power of a great front door—it sets the tone and is such a warm welcome for holiday guests coming over this time of year,” says Austin-based Camille Styles, founder of Casa Zuma and “Plus I get so much joy from seeing my own decked out front porch whenever I pull in the driveway!” 

Our advice: Why not switch up your door design every time a new season rolls around? Below are 16 of the best front door decor ideas you can replicate as you get ready for winter, spring, summer, and fall.

Fresh evergreen looks even more beautiful against a sharp black door. A garland and seasonal plants can turn a stark doorway into a jolly one in no time. Whether you opt for fresh greenery or go the faux route is up to you. For a crafty take, DIY a nontraditional wreath with dried citrus or succulents, if you live in a warmer climate.

2. Stained glass
