Welcome the season with a signature greeting. Simple craft and garden supplies, and a coat or two of matte-finish white chalk paint, turn this stoop into a stunner.

We brushed a wooden round from a crafts store with white chalk paint and let it dry, then glued on a leafy accent and covered the whole thing with another coat. Woodworking details like this laurel often appear on furniture, but it's ultra-elegant on our stylish wreath alternative, which can stay up until well after the new year without shedding a single needle or berry. For the finishing touch, we stenciled on a family monogram in gold paint. To give a pair of lightweight composite planters a stately makeover, we sprayed them with chalk paint as well.
