DIY Fall Design Tips for Your Curb Appeal
With fall weather just around the corner, it’s a good time to arrange 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 prepared for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Improve your curb appeal this fall 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 prefer to put the garland. Regardless of where it goes, all this project takes is a few straightforward steps: cut rope to your desired length (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 accentuate 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 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 alongside 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 a simple way to get into the season spirit, don’t forget to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the cooler 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 chilly in the upcoming months.
