With the arrival of fall, it’s the perfect time to set up the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some unique decorations can be a good way to begin the season and get prepared 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 hang 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 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 highlight your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Take the beautiful fall colors and transform them into a DIY wreath to put 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 squares throughout the wreath while gluing foliage alongside the burlap sections.
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.
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 cooler weather, too. They will 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 chilly in the upcoming months.
