With fall weather just around the corner, it’s a good time to set up the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some fun DIY projects can be the perfect way to begin the season and get in the mood for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Step up your curb appeal this year with these fun décor projects that are easy, unique and on-trend:
Project #1: Corn Husk Garland
This decoration will add fantastic curb appeal to your home’s windows or doors, depending on where you prefer to place the garland. Regardless of where it goes, all this project takes is a few easy steps: cut rope to your desired length (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. Hang your new garland to accentuate your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Incorporate all the warm colors of fall 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. Here are the steps: Cut the burlap into four 4x4-inch squares. Then, fold and glue the burlap squares around the wreath while gluing foliage alongside the burlap sections.
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 weathered or unprepared for the impending winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling cool in the upcoming months.
