Set a festive mood in the entryway with a wall collage, says designer and do-it-yourself expert Christopher White. Mix in decorative vintage plates and natural elements like pinecones or a bunch of bayberry branches tied with velvet ribbon. Later in the season, display holiday cards or ornaments in the frames, he suggests.
Here's how: Buy a variety of wood frames from the flea market or thrift store. Spray with metallic gold paint. Line frames with decorative flocked paper or wrapping paper backed with foam core.
