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 simple and unique designs can be a good way to start off 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, unique 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. Wherever you end up putting it, all this project takes is a few easy steps: cut rope to your desired length (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. Display your new garland to accentuate your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Incorporate all the warm colors of fall into a DIY wreath to put 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 pieces of burlap throughout the wreath while gluing foliage in between the burlap pieces.
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 focus toward your festive fall entryway.
And while creating unique and colorful outdoor decorations is an easy way to get into the season spirit, don’t forget to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the colder temps, too. They might look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are aged or unprepared for the upcoming winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling cool in the upcoming months.
