We love this fresh take on the classic paper bag luminarias. All you need is a set of mason jars, Epsom salt and some small candles. Line them up on your front walk for a festive winter welcome.

Grab a new doormat at Target or get creative and go for a little doorway DIY. Pick up an inexpensive bristly doormat, some gold spray paint, then add a smattering of triangle with white craft paint and a small paintbrush.

Gold Wreath

Add a dash of metallic to your entry with this simple gold wreath. Hit the craft store for a foam wreath form, gold thumbtacks and a ribbon. Yes, you’ll be pushing in over 1,000 thumbtacks, but pop in A Christmas Story and watch while you work.
