DIY Fall Design Tips for Your Curb Appeal
With the arrival of fall, it’s a good time to set up the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some fun DIY projects can be a good way to start off the season and get in the mood 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 DIY will add fantastic curb appeal to your home’s windows or doors, depending on where you want to put the garland. Either way, all this project takes is a few straightforward steps: cut rope to your desired length (outlining your windows or door) with a few extra inches to get a droopy effect, and stick 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 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 burlap squares throughout the wreath while gluing foliage alongside the burlap squares.
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 attention toward your festive fall entryway.
And while creating unique and colorful outdoor decorations is a fun way to get into the season spirit, don’t forget to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the cooler weather, too. They may 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.
