With the arrival of fall, it’s the perfect 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 great way to start off the season and get prepared for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Enhance your curb appeal this year 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 want to put the garland. Regardless of where it goes, 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 attach 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 project requires 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 along the sides of the wreath while gluing foliage in between the burlap sections.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Creat an inviting feel to your home this fall with a blackboard “Welcome” or “Happy Fall” sign by your entry. Remind passersby what the season is really about and draw attention toward your festive fall entryway.
And while creating unique and colorful outdoor decorations is a fun way to get into the season spirit, remember to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the colder temps, too. They may look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are weathered or unprepared for the upcoming winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling pretty uncomfortable in the upcoming months.
