DIY Fall Design Tips for Your Curb Appeal
With fall weather just around the corner, it’s a great opportunity 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 kick off the season and get excited for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Improve your curb appeal this fall with these fun décor projects that are easy, fresh 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 want to hang the garland. Wherever you end up putting it, all this project takes is a few straightforward steps: decide how long you want the 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 accentuate your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Take the beautiful fall colors and transform them into a DIY wreath to display 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 pieces of burlap throughout the wreath while gluing foliage alongside the burlap squares.
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.
While adding fun DIY projects to the outside of your home is an easy 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 upcoming winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling pretty uncomfortable in the upcoming months.
