Now that fall is here, 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 prepared for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Step up your curb appeal this fall 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 prefer to put the garland. Regardless of where it goes, all this project takes is a few straightforward steps: decide how long you want the rope (outlining your windows or door) with a few added inches to get a droopy effect, and stick corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Hang your new garland to highlight your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Mirror the warm, fall colors and incorporate them into a DIY wreath to display on your door. The project requires a wooden stick wreath, burlap, artificial fall foliage, scissors and a glue gun. Here are the steps: Cut the burlap into four 4x4-inch squares. Then, fold and glue the burlap pieces around the wreath while gluing foliage alongside the burlap sections.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Make your home look warm and inviting 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 adding fun DIY projects to the outside of your home is an easy way to get into the season spirit, don’t forget to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the cooler weather, too. They might look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are weathered or unprepared for the approaching winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling cool in the upcoming months.
