Now that fall is here, it’s a great opportunity 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 a good way to kick off the season and get excited for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Step up your curb appeal this season with these fun décor projects that are easy, fresh and on-trend:
Project #1: Corn Husk Garland
This DIY 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 easy steps: cut rope to your desired length (outlining your windows or door) with a few additional inches to get a droopy effect, and affix corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Put up 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 pieces of burlap along the sides of the wreath while gluing foliage by the burlap sections.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Make your home look warm and inviting this fall with a blackboard “Welcome” or “Happy Fall” sign on your door. Remind passersby what the season is really about and draw attention 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 may look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are weathered or unprepared for the upcoming winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling pretty uncomfortable in the upcoming months.
