With the arrival of fall, it’s a great opportunity to prepare the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some unique decorations can be a good way to start off the season and get excited for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Step up your curb appeal this year with these fun décor projects that are easy, new 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 want to place the garland. Wherever you end up putting it, all this project takes is a few simple steps: decide how long you want the rope (outlining your windows or door) with a few extra inches to get a droopy effect, and attach corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Put up your new garland to accentuate your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Take the beautiful fall colors and transform them into a DIY wreath to display 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 throughout the wreath while gluing foliage in between the burlap sections.
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 a fun way to get into the season spirit, don’t forget to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the colder weather, too. They might 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 pretty uncomfortable in the upcoming months.
