Now that fall is here, 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 in the mood for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Improve your curb appeal this season 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 would like to put the garland. Wherever you end up putting it, all this project takes is a few straightforward steps: decide how long you want the rope (outlining your windows or door) with a few extra inches to get a droopy effect, and stick 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
Incorporate all the warm colors of fall 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 pieces around the wreath while gluing foliage in between the burlap squares.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Make your home look warm and inviting this fall with a blackboard “Welcome” or “Happy Fall” sign outside of your door. Remind passersby what the season is really about and draw attention toward your festive fall entryway.
And while creating unique and colorful outdoor decorations is a fun 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 old or unprepared for the approaching winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling chilly in the upcoming months.
