What do you want people to feel when they enter your home? Classy and posh? Hip and minimalistic?
I lean toward comfy and cozy.
My guests should feel free to make themselves at home, be it taking off their shoes, or fixing themselves a cup of coffee.
For that reason, I want that feeling to begin the moment they walk through my door.
Here's how I made a cozy farmhouse Christmas entryway this season.

This year's Christmas theme is comfy and cozy, as well as simple and budget friendly, which is equally as important. That means, using what I have on hand as much as possible, like I did with my Christmas Mantel.
Here are the supplies I had to work with:
Basically, you begin by gathering whatever christmas greenery you have. Lemme tell you, this garland is on it's last leg, so we need to beef it up a bit.
Cozy Farmhouse Christmas Entryway
- To begin with, I twisted two of my skimpy garland together to see how it worked. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Yup.....meh...
- I added another garland of different texture and now it's looking better!
- Next came the sprigs and branches - just tuck them in where you need to fill in gaps or places that need some beefing up.
- Lastly, I added the eucalyptus for a bit of color and texture variation.
Simple and budget friendly!
Now its time to add the welcoming factor. Since I love the look of ticking stripe fabric, I had to add it to this entryway.
It takes me back to the era of ticking stripe bedding and instantly brings the feeling of warmth.
I didn't have much fabric scraps on hand, so I tied a few pieces onto the garland.
For my Hall Tree, I added a simple, unadorned wreath and a mini tree.
I tied small strips of the ticking fabric to the tree branches.
One of the easiest ways to add warm is with a strand of simple wooden beads.
On my vintage theater seats sits a mix of velvet and knit pillows.
I stumbled upon this tiny knit pillow while digging through my old Christmas decor boxes. I got that pillow in the first years of our marriage and I love how it perfectly fits!
To emphasize the cozy feel, this plaid throw is just perfect - and it compliments the pillows nicely, doncha think?
Since I want people to feel free to kick off their shoes and relax - what better way to send that message than with a pair of Wellies sitting next to the door.
Hopefully this is creating a welcoming entry that allows everyone who enters to especially feel at home this holiday season!
