With the arrival of fall, it’s a great opportunity to set up the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some simple and unique designs can be a great way to start off the season and get prepared for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Improve 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. Regardless of where it goes, all this project takes is a few simple steps: decide how long you want the 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. Put up your new garland to give prominence to your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Incorporate all the warm colors of fall into a DIY wreath to display on your door. The supply list includes 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 pieces around 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 by your entry. Remind passersby what the season is really about and draw focus toward your festive fall entryway.
And while creating unique and colorful outdoor decorations is an easy way to get into the season spirit, remember 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 impending winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling chilly in the upcoming months.
