With the arrival of fall, it’s a good time to prepare the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some fun DIY projects can be a great way to begin the season and get in the mood for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Enhance your curb appeal this fall with these fun décor projects that are easy, new 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 hang the garland. Regardless of where it goes, all this project takes is a few easy steps: determine the length of your 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 give prominence to your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Incorporate all the warm colors of fall into a DIY wreath to put 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 pieces of burlap around the wreath while gluing foliage in between the burlap squares.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Add warmth 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 focus 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 old or unprepared for the upcoming winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling cool in the upcoming months.
