With the arrival of fall, it’s a good 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 the perfect way to begin the season and get excited for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Enhance your curb appeal this season 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 prefer to place the garland. Either way, all this project takes is a few easy steps: decide how long you want the rope (outlining your windows or door) with a few added inches to get a droopy effect, and attach 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. Here is the process: Cut the burlap into four 4x4-inch squares. Then, fold and glue the burlap pieces around the wreath while gluing foliage alongside the burlap pieces.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Make your home look warm and inviting 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.
While adding fun DIY projects to the outside of your home is a simple 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 old or unprepared for the upcoming winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling chilly in the upcoming months.
