Now that fall is here, it’s the perfect time to arrange the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some fun DIY projects can be a good way to kick off the season and get in the mood 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 want to place the garland. Regardless of where it goes, all this project takes is a few simple steps: determine the length of your rope (outlining your windows or door) with a few additional 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 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 burlap squares throughout the wreath while gluing foliage alongside the burlap squares.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Creat an inviting feel to your home this fall with a blackboard “Welcome” or “Happy Fall” sign on 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 a fun way to get into the season spirit, make sure to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the colder weather, too. They will look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are weathered or unprepared for the impending winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling cool in the upcoming months.
