With fall weather just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to prepare the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some unique decorations can be the perfect way to begin the season and get in the mood for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Enhance your curb appeal this fall 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 put the garland. Either way, all this project takes is a few straightforward steps: determine the length of your rope (outlining your windows or door) with a few additional 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
Take the beautiful fall colors and transform 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. Here is the process: 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
Make your home look warm and inviting 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 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 cooler weather, too. They will look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are aged or unprepared for the upcoming winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling cool in the upcoming months.
