Now that fall is here, it’s a good time to arrange the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some unique decorations can be the perfect way to start off the season and get excited for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Improve your curb appeal this season with these fun décor projects that are easy, fresh 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 prefer to hang 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. Display your new garland to accentuate your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Mirror the warm, fall colors and incorporate them into a DIY wreath to display 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 along the sides of the wreath while gluing foliage in between the burlap sections.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Creat an inviting feel 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.
While preparing for fall with great DIY outdoor décor projects is a fun way to get into the season spirit, make sure to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the cooler weather, too. They may look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are weathered or unprepared for the impending winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling cool in the upcoming months.
