DIY Fall Design Tips for Your Curb Appeal
With fall weather just around the corner, it’s a great opportunity to prepare 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 start off the season and get excited for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Enhance your curb appeal this fall with these fun décor projects that are easy, new 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 place the garland. Either way, all this project takes is a few easy steps: determine the length of your rope (outlining your windows or door) with a few added inches to get a droopy effect, and affix corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Hang your new garland to highlight 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 project requires 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
Add warmth to your home this fall with a blackboard “Welcome” or “Happy Fall” sign outside of your door. Remind passersby what the season is really about and draw attention toward your festive fall entryway.
While preparing for fall with great DIY outdoor décor projects is a simple way to get into the season spirit, don’t forget to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the colder weather, too. They might look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are old or unprepared for the upcoming winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling pretty uncomfortable in the upcoming months.
