    How about hanging an old sled right on the door? A vintage one adds extra charm to this lodge look, especially when adorned with ribbon or perhaps a strip of sleigh bells. A vintage sled is a great thing to look for at a flea market or yard sale. You don't have to worry too much about the condition you find it in, either, since a little patina only adds to the appeal.

    Nothing says a Currier & Ives Christmas like a pair of ice skates hanging on the front door. To make them look pretty, fill the boots with greenery and holly berries and top everything with a bow, similar to the way Creatively Southern did. This idea even looks great long after the holidays are over.

    Stars are one of the symbols of the season, to be sure, so why not use them on your front door in place of a wreath? This creative blogger from Sweden combined the beauty of Christmas greenery by fashioning it into a spruce star instead of a wreath. Try an even simpler version by gathering straight twigs and binding them into a star shape.
