How do I Wrap my Door for Christmas?

If you’re looking to do something more whimsical with your front door décor, then I’d highly suggest you try wrapping your door like a present!

The best way to do this is to find some gift-wrapping paper that is wide enough to cover your door with a little space to tuck it into the edges.

Simply tape your gift wrap over the top of your door and through the top edge, roll it down and repeat for all the edges. Basically the main goal is to tape it enough so it doesn’t fall off the door and neatly enough so there aren’t any extra wrapping paper bits showing through the front or backside of your door.
