With fall weather just around the corner, it’s a good time 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 good way to kick off 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, fresh 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 prefer to place the garland. Either way, all this project takes is a few simple steps: determine the length of your rope (outlining your windows or door) with a few extra inches to get a droopy effect, and stick corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Hang your new garland to give prominence to your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Take the beautiful fall colors and transform them into a DIY wreath to put on your door. The supply list includes 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 burlap squares throughout 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 on 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 a fun way to get into the season spirit, make sure to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the colder weather, too. They might look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are aged or unprepared for the approaching winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling chilly in the upcoming months.
