Emily from Emily A. Clark shows that you don't have to completely redecorate your space to get it ready for the holiday. After a trip to The Home Depot, she created an entryway worthy of Christmas cheer.

Step
The foyer started in pretty great shape, but was lacking the holiday flare that the season calls out for. Like the bold stripes - see Emily's article - Painting Stripes in Our Foyer.
Step
Start off shopping for supplies at The Home Depot. Besides her favorite P&G cleaning supplies, she picked up a large terracotta pot, some gold glitter spray paint and 3M Command hooks.
Step
Use large terracotta pots to make a perfect (inexpensive!) tree holder. You can glam it up a little for this project. Add some sparkle to the pot in the form of glitter spray paint. And good go-to cleaning supplies list for this project: Febreze, Swiffer 360 Dusters and of course, Bounty Paper Towels. Decorating for the holidays can be a dirty job!
Step
They say it has to get worse before it gets better. This is midway through her entry holiday makeover. Fur, paper snowflakes and stuff were everywhere. Faux fur seemed like a good idea, but it sure is messy!
Step
Since she was going for a winter wonderland look, she sprayed her artificial pencil tree with faux snow.
Step
After spray-painting the terracotta pot with gold glitter spray, she used hot glue to attach a faux fur trim around the top. This was a super easy DIY project and works so much better as a tree holder by the front door instead of a traditional Christmas tree skirt.
Step
Once you swept up the bulk of the mess, the Swiffer 360 Duster is perfect for gathering up the rest of that pesky faux fur.
Step
A small pre-lit tree by the front door creates a welcoming, festive feel.

Here's her foyer, finished and ready for Christmas guests!
