With fall weather just around the corner, it’s a great opportunity to set up 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 start off the season and get excited for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Improve your curb appeal this year 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 put the garland. Wherever you end up putting it, all this project takes is a few straightforward steps: cut rope to your desired length (outlining your windows or door) with a few extra inches to get a droopy effect, and affix corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Put up your new garland to highlight 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 pieces around the wreath while gluing foliage by the burlap pieces.
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 preparing for fall with great DIY outdoor décor projects is an easy way to get into the season spirit, make sure to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the colder weather, too. They might 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.
