Is a door bow the new Christmas wreath? According to Instagram it is...

Forget a traditional wreath, this year we are all about the door bows...

Before this year we had heard of the door bow, seen it on some corners of Instagram even, but this year, we swear we have seen more oversized bows tied to front doors than we have wreaths. Probably linked to the whole 2020 being a shocker of a year and everyone going over board on their Christmas decs (we are okay with that BTW). 

Extra in all the right ways, this extravagant, bright red festive bow is the ultimate seasonal statement. Equal parts glam and fun, this new Christmas trend is actually really easy to DIY yourself too using reams of tulle and ribbons. But just in case you don't trust your craft skills, we have rounded up some top affordable picks for you to get shopping instead.
