With the arrival of fall, it’s a good 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 great way to begin the season and get prepared for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Enhance your curb appeal this year 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 prefer to hang the garland. Either way, all this project takes is a few simple steps: cut rope to your desired length (outlining your windows or door) with a few extra inches to get a droopy effect, and stick corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Hang 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 put on your door. The supply list includes 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 pieces.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Creat an inviting feel 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 focus 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 may look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are weathered or unprepared for the upcoming winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling pretty uncomfortable in the upcoming months.
