Now that fall is here, it’s the perfect time to set up the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some unique decorations can be a good way to start off the season and get excited for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Enhance your curb appeal this fall with these fun décor projects that are easy, fresh 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 want to place the garland. Wherever you end up putting it, all this project takes is a few easy steps: determine the length of your 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. Put up 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 burlap pieces throughout the wreath while gluing foliage by the burlap squares.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Make your home look warm and inviting this fall with a blackboard “Welcome” or “Happy Fall” sign on your door. Remind passersby what the season is really about and draw focus toward your festive fall entryway.
And while creating unique and colorful outdoor decorations is a simple way to get into the season spirit, remember to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the colder weather, too. They will look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are old or unprepared for the impending winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling pretty uncomfortable in the upcoming months.
