DIY Fall Design Tips for Your Curb Appeal
With the arrival of fall, 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 the perfect way to start off the season and get in the mood 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 DIY will add fantastic curb appeal to your home’s windows or doors, depending on where you prefer to hang the garland. Wherever you end up putting it, all this project takes is a few easy steps: decide how long you want the rope (outlining your windows or door) with a few additional inches to get a droopy effect, and affix corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Display your new garland to give prominence to 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 supply list includes 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 pieces of burlap around the wreath while gluing foliage in between 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 attention toward your festive fall entryway.
And while creating unique and colorful outdoor decorations is an easy way to get into the season spirit, remember to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the colder temps, too. They might look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are aged or unprepared for the impending winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling cool in the upcoming months.
