Now that fall is here, it’s the perfect time to prepare the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some unique decorations can be a great way to begin the season and get excited for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Improve your curb appeal this year with these fun décor projects that are easy, fresh 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 would like to put the garland. Regardless of where it goes, 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 stick corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Hang your new garland to highlight your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Mirror the warm, fall colors and incorporate them into a DIY wreath to hang 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 around 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 outside of your door. Remind passersby what the season is really about and draw attention 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, make sure to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the colder temps, too. They will look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are aged or unprepared for the upcoming winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling pretty uncomfortable in the upcoming months.
