With the arrival of fall, it’s a great opportunity to prepare 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 begin the season and get prepared 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 would like to put the garland. Either way, all this project takes is a few easy steps: cut rope to your desired length (outlining your windows or door) with a few added inches to get a droopy effect, and stick 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
Mirror the warm, fall colors and incorporate them 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. This is what you’ll do: Cut the burlap into four 4x4-inch squares. Then, fold and glue the pieces of burlap along the sides of the wreath while gluing foliage by 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 simple way to get into the season spirit, don’t forget to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the colder 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 chilly in the upcoming months.
