Now that fall is here, it’s the perfect time to arrange the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some simple and unique designs can be a great 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 project will add fantastic curb appeal to your home’s windows or doors, depending on where you would like to put the garland. Wherever you end up putting it, all this project takes is a few simple 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. Hang your new garland to give prominence to your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Take the beautiful fall colors and transform them into a DIY wreath to hang on your door. You’ll need 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 squares along the sides of the wreath while gluing foliage alongside the burlap squares.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Add warmth to your home this fall with a blackboard “Welcome” or “Happy Fall” sign on your door. 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 a fun way to get into the season spirit, don’t forget to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the colder weather, too. They might look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are old or unprepared for the impending winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling pretty uncomfortable in the upcoming months.
