Vintage Sled Front Door Decor

We are getting closer!! It actually feels totally like Christmas now since we got dumped on with the snow yesterday, my kids could not be happier! This momma is more than happy to send them outside to frolic in the snow too :)


Can I confess I’m not a wreath person? Everytime I try to make a wreath I hate the way it turns out, so this year I decided to buck tradition and put a sled on my front door. I found one this summer at a flea market for $15 and it’s been sitting in the garage ever since.

My kids had been making epic plans for it, convinced it was going to be the fastest sled they have ever ridden…until I put it on the front door. My daughter may not be talking to me at this point still.

Me and my decor ideas “ruin everything!” I know, the drama!

Please tell me how an old rusty sled screams speed demon anyways? They wouldn’t make it halfway down the hill on this poor thing.

And yes, Buddy feels the need to photo bomb every single front door photo ever. He could at least smile, or stick his tongue out…he needs to work on his selfie game…

Christmas planter boxes

Remember my DIY Cabinet Door Planter Boxes? They are all decked out for Christmas too. All they needed were some greenery, birch logs and a few ornament picks.

A few of you saw a sneak peek of my front door on Instagram and asked how I had hung the sled up there. I just tied a wire across the back and hung it from a wreath hook.

I will say you have to be careful not to slam the door so it doesn’t scratch up the door, but we don’t use this door all that often, so it works for us.

Oh and here’s the proof winter has arrived in Michigan! So glad I got all this up while it was still 50 degrees out.

  1. Kelly, I’m sure this is a very obvious answer to a simple question; but how do you hang the garland on the arch way and pillars?
    I always want to do this with my front area too, but I don’t know how to hang them! lol
    Happy as always to see your posts!

    1. Hey Mandy! So I have a few little white nails that go along the arch, then I used floral wire to wrap around the nails and then wrap around the garland. Does that make sense? I leave the little white nails up all year long and you can’t even notice them!
