With the arrival of fall, it’s the perfect time to arrange the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some fun DIY projects can be a good 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 want to put the garland. Wherever you end up putting it, all this project takes is a few easy 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 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 pieces of burlap along the sides of the wreath while gluing foliage by the burlap squares.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Add warmth to your home this fall with a blackboard “Welcome” or “Happy Fall” sign on your door. Remind passersby what the season is really about and draw focus toward your festive fall entryway.
While adding fun DIY projects to the outside of your home 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 might look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are weathered or unprepared for the approaching winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling chilly in the upcoming months.
