With fall weather just around the corner, 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 good way to start off the season and get excited for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Step up your curb appeal this year 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 would like to place the garland. Regardless of where it goes, all this project takes is a few simple steps: cut rope to your desired length (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. Display your new garland to highlight your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Incorporate all the warm colors of fall into a DIY wreath to hang on your door. You’ll need 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 sections.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Creat an inviting feel to your home 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 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 colder weather, 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 cool in the upcoming months.
