Now that fall is here, it’s a good time to prepare the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some unique decorations can be a great way to start off the season and get in the mood for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Improve your curb appeal this season with these fun décor projects that are easy, new 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 would like to put the garland. Either way, all this project takes is a few easy steps: determine the length of your rope (outlining your windows or door) with a few additional inches to get a droopy effect, and attach corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Put up your new garland to give prominence to 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. 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 burlap pieces throughout the wreath while gluing foliage by the burlap sections.
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 attention toward your festive fall entryway.
And while creating unique and colorful outdoor decorations is a simple way to get into the season spirit, make sure to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the cooler weather, too. They may look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are aged or unprepared for the impending winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling cool in the upcoming months.
