The first thing a person notices when entering into one’s sanctuary is the door. But isn’t it high time that the bleak- looking entrance to your domain conjured a bit of charm, a dose of quirkiness and your own sense of style?
We have gathered some easy yet creative DIY front door decor ideas to make your plain-Jane door eye-catching and playful. So pick up your lazy asses, get inspired and add some sass to the doors in your home! As Keats said, “A thing of beauty is a joy forever,” and nothing makes us patrons of arts as happy as a unique and beautiful space.
1. Rain Boots, Umbrellas, or Watering Cans!
For people who love things to be fresh and lively, you can redesign your door using your old rain boots or umbrellas which are lying idle in your storage. Just place some faux flowers inside the container and secure it with a ribbon, and voila, your DIY front door decor project is ready to be hung using a wreath hanger.
2. Quirky Chalkboard Quotes
A quirky idea to decorate your door is to paint the interior of a tray, frame, or cupboard door with chalkboard paint. You can then fill your chalkboard with an inspiring quote, welcome message, monogram, or your house numbers. It’s a really functional and awesome front door decor idea as you can easily change the chalkboard message according to your mood.
3. Washi Tape Doors for Symmetry Lovers
We have something for geometric design lovers as well. You can display your individuality and love for everything symmetrical to the world by using Washi tape to decorate your door. All you do is unroll the Washi tape and trim or rip where you please to create your design. Washi tape is easily available everywhere and comes in a ton of colours and patterns to suit every mood and style.
4. Empty Picture Frames
We all have unused photo-frames stashed somewhere in the dredges of our cupboards. It’s finally time to put those frames to use, people. Empty frames can be embellished with craft supplies you have lying around the house such as scrapbook paper, faux flowers, fabric flowers or even dried flowers.

5. Stylish Door Knobs
Make your door stand out by using appealing door handles which will have people looking twice as they enter the room. You can find many door accessories online or make them yourself now which adds aesthetic appeal to the space. From doorknobs shaped like hands to those that hold secret messages, such quirky door handles serve to turn an ordinary feature into something your guests will surely be talking about.
Out of the Blue Design Studios offer a vast collection of door handles that are bizzare in their thought and design. Their glass door knobs are funky, avant-garde and add a whimsical look to the door.
Designer Gionatta Gatto is the mind behind the door handle known as The SMS Clip. This out-of-the-box door handle design lets you clip on notes to it and is the perfect door accessory for people who are forgetful.
6. A Door That Plays With Colours and Reflections
Inspired by artist Armin Blasbichler’s home in South Tyrol, you can design your door using light switches to confuse visitors. Another idea is to use little Pantone reference panels for every colour, which is a highly unique and great means of artistic expression.
