Welcoming Entryway Decor Ideas

In our opinion, the entryway is one of the most important areas of the house because, besides the facade, it makes the first impression when visitors step into your home! We love using our entryway as a place to set the tone and make our aesthetic and some of our passions clear right off the bat, so people feel like they’re getting to know us a little bit. That’s why we’re always on the lookout for new, awesome DIY decor pieces we can make to create a sense of welcoming in that first room of our home!

Just in case you love the idea of making a few new DIY home decor pieces for your own entryway just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the very best ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in our search.

1. River rock boot tray

If you live in a wintery place like we do, then you already know all too well how much of a mess snow covered boots can make when you come inside. They melt dirty water all over the floor, making things slippery and leaving marks. That’s why we loved this boot mat suggestion from Heart Maine Home so much! They show you how to make it using actual river rocks and pebbles.

2. DIY industrial coat rack

Does your house fall somewhere in that popular and ever impressive looking aesthetic that blends rustic chics with elements of vintage industrial? Well, even if you’re just starting out in building that style and only have a few pieces, this particular shelving project from Beneath My Heart will look great. Their tutorial shows you how to make a simple floating coat and bag rack from reclaimed wood and black piping.
