With fall weather just around the corner, it’s a good time to prepare the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some simple and unique designs can be the perfect way to kick off the season and get in the mood for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Improve your curb appeal this year with these fun décor projects that are easy, unique 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 want to put the garland. Regardless of where it goes, all this project takes is a few simple steps: decide how long you want the rope (outlining your windows or door) with a few extra 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 along the sides of the wreath while gluing foliage in between the burlap sections.
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.
While adding fun DIY projects to the outside of your home is a fun way to get into the season spirit, don’t forget to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the colder weather, too. They might 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 cool in the upcoming months.
