With the arrival of fall, it’s the perfect time to arrange the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some unique decorations can be the perfect way to kick off the season and get prepared for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Step up your curb appeal this fall with these fun décor projects that are easy, unique 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 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 added inches to get a droopy effect, and affix corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Display your new garland to accentuate your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Mirror the warm, fall colors and incorporate them into a DIY wreath to display 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 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 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 an easy way to get into the season spirit, make sure to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the cooler weather, too. They might look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are old or unprepared for the approaching winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling pretty uncomfortable in the upcoming months.
