With the arrival of fall, it’s a good time to set up the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some unique decorations can be a good way to begin the season and get prepared for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Improve your curb appeal this year 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 want to place 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 additional inches to get a droopy effect, and affix corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Put up your new garland to accentuate your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Take the beautiful fall colors and transform them into a DIY wreath to display 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 squares throughout the wreath while gluing foliage in between the burlap squares.
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.
While adding fun DIY projects to the outside of your home is a simple way to get into the season spirit, remember to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the colder weather, too. They will 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 chilly in the upcoming months.
