With the arrival of fall, it’s a great opportunity to set up the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some simple and unique designs can be a great way to start off the season and get excited for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Enhance your curb appeal this season 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 prefer to place the garland. Wherever you end up putting it, all this project takes is a few easy steps: decide how long you want the rope (outlining your windows or door) with a few additional inches to get a droopy effect, and attach corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Display 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 hang 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 squares throughout the wreath while gluing foliage by the burlap sections.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Make your home look warm and inviting this fall with a blackboard “Welcome” or “Happy Fall” sign by your entry. 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 fun way to get into the season spirit, remember 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 approaching winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling chilly in the upcoming months.
