With the arrival of fall, it’s a good time to set up the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some simple and unique designs can be the perfect way to kick off the season and get excited for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Enhance your curb appeal this year with these fun décor projects that are easy, unique and on-trend:
Project #1: Corn Husk Garland
This decoration will add fantastic curb appeal to your home’s windows or doors, depending on where you want to hang the garland. Regardless of where it goes, all this project takes is a few straightforward steps: cut rope to your desired length (outlining your windows or door) with a few extra inches to get a droopy effect, and attach corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Display your new garland to give prominence to your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Mirror the warm, fall colors and incorporate them into a DIY wreath to put on your door. The supply list includes a wooden stick wreath, burlap, artificial fall foliage, scissors and a glue gun. This is what you’ll do: Cut the burlap into four 4x4-inch squares. Then, fold and glue the burlap pieces along the sides of the wreath while gluing foliage alongside the burlap squares.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Creat an inviting feel to your home this fall with a blackboard “Welcome” or “Happy Fall” sign by your entry. Remind passersby what the season is really about and draw focus toward your festive fall entryway.
While preparing for fall with great DIY outdoor décor projects is a fun way to get into the season spirit, remember to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the colder weather, too. They will look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are old or unprepared for the upcoming winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling chilly in the upcoming months.
