Starry Delight

The exposed wood beams and wood front door on this Tudor-style house give it a country quality that inspired its woodland scheme. A tree branch and forest greens keep the decor simple, while silvery stars and tin tree luminarias add a hint of holiday bling.

Outline the door in garland, then attach silver accents. If your door has no built-in hooks, tap thin nails into the frame's corners and into porch supports. Wire garland to the nails. Glitz up greens with tin or silver spray-painted stars. We cut stars from tin sheets available at local crafts stores. Thin tin strips (careful-they can be sharp!) naturally spiral into shooting star trails. For a unique holiday tree, place a 4- to 5-foot fallen tree branch in a tin pail anchored with floral clay, rocks and faux snow. Dangle ornaments on its branches. A basket bursting with cedar, juniper and stars hangs below the door's window. Tin tree luminarias don't need candles; they shine in the daylight.
