With fall weather just around the corner, it’s a great opportunity to prepare the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some fun DIY projects can be a great way to kick off the season and get prepared for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Improve your curb appeal this fall with these fun décor projects that are easy, new 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. Either way, all this project takes is a few easy steps: decide how long you want the rope (outlining your windows or door) with a few added inches to get a droopy effect, and affix corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Display your new garland to accentuate 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. Here is the process: Cut the burlap into four 4x4-inch squares. Then, fold and glue the burlap squares along the sides of the wreath while gluing foliage in between the burlap pieces.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Add warmth to your home this fall with a blackboard “Welcome” or “Happy Fall” sign outside of your door. Remind passersby what the season is really about and draw focus toward your festive fall entryway.
And while creating unique and colorful outdoor decorations is an easy way to get into the season spirit, don’t forget to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the colder weather, too. They may 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 chilly in the upcoming months.
