DIY Fall Design Tips for Your Curb Appeal
With the arrival of fall, it’s a great opportunity to prepare 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 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, 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. Regardless of where it goes, all this project takes is a few simple steps: cut rope to your desired length (outlining your windows or door) with a few extra inches to get a droopy effect, and affix corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Put up 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 display on your door. The project requires 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
Add warmth 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 interest toward your festive fall entryway.
While adding fun DIY projects to the outside of your home is a fun way to get into the season spirit, remember to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the colder temps, too. They will look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are old or unprepared for the impending winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling cool in the upcoming months.
