As summer wraps up, there are some things you can do to make the exterior of your home warm and inviting.
1. Brighten up your front door
If you've been thinking about giving your front door a fresh coat of paint, now is a great time to do it. There are several shades of red (or even orange) that look great for highlighting the entrance of your home year round but will look especially good with the colors of fall.
2. Hang a wreath
Putting a wreath with fall colors on your door is an easy and inexpensive way to accent for the fall season. You can use anything from miniature pumpkins or acorns to flowers and fabric when making your own. Customize a store bought wreath by adding the initial of your last name or a "welcome" message.
3. Plant some fall flowers or shrubs
Buy decorative pots or tap into your creative side and paint clay pots in your favorite fall colors before adding your favorite flowers. There are several easy to care for fall flowers to choose from like zinnias, marigolds, or mums. Fall is also the ideal time to add a new shrub or tree.
