With fall weather just around the corner, 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 good way to kick off the season and get in the mood for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Step up your curb appeal this fall with these fun décor projects that are easy, new and on-trend:
Project #1: Corn Husk Garland
This project will add fantastic curb appeal to your home’s windows or doors, depending on where you want 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 extra inches to get a droopy effect, and affix corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Hang your new garland to accentuate 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 project requires 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 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 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 colder temps, 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 cool in the upcoming months.
