With fall weather just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to arrange the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some fun DIY projects can be the perfect way to kick off the season and get in the mood for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Enhance 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 place the garland. Regardless of where it goes, all this project takes is a few straightforward steps: cut rope to your desired length (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. Put up your new garland to highlight 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. You’ll need 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 around the wreath while gluing foliage in between 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 interest toward your festive fall entryway.
And while creating unique and colorful outdoor decorations is a simple 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 aged or unprepared for the approaching winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling cool in the upcoming months.
