With fall weather just around the corner, it’s a great opportunity to prepare the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some fun DIY projects can be a great way to begin the season and get prepared for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Enhance your curb appeal this season with these fun décor projects that are easy, fresh 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 would like to put the garland. Regardless of where it goes, all this project takes is a few straightforward steps: decide how long you want the rope (outlining your windows or door) with a few extra inches to get a droopy effect, and affix corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Hang your new garland to highlight your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Incorporate all the warm colors of fall 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. Here are the steps: Cut the burlap into four 4x4-inch squares. Then, fold and glue the burlap squares along the sides of the wreath while gluing foliage by the burlap pieces.
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 simple 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 old or unprepared for the approaching winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling cool in the upcoming months.
