Now that fall is here, it’s the perfect time to arrange the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some unique decorations can be a good way to begin the season and get excited for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Step up your curb appeal this year with these fun décor projects that are easy, unique 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. Wherever you end up putting it, all this project takes is a few easy steps: determine the length of your 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. Put up 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 put on your door. You’ll need 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 pieces of burlap around the wreath while gluing foliage by the burlap pieces.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Creat an inviting feel to your home this fall with a blackboard “Welcome” or “Happy Fall” sign on your door. Remind passersby what the season is really about and draw interest 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 may 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 pretty uncomfortable in the upcoming months.
