Doorscaping: Be inspired by the latest A-list Christmas decorating trend

The tree is up, the presents are wrapped, the stockings are hung and the mince pies are in the oven … all that's left to decorate is your front door

With Christmas well underway, there have been some impressive decorations showcased on social media. But this year, a whole new decorating trend has emerged: doorscaping.

Doorscaping is the art of turning your usually boring front door into a show-stopping entrance fit for Santa Claus and his elves to stroll through on the evening of December 24, if you don't have a chimney, of course.

Proof that a simple wreath alone no longer cuts it, celebrities have been enlisting the services of florists and interior designers to create the most lavish doorscapes this festive period. However, if you're on a slightly less A-list budget, you can opt for oversized bows and home-made wreaths.

And as there's still time to jazz up your front door for the big day, take your inspiration from these delightful doorscapes...
