Start off with a good quality garland, shape out the branches for a full look
Attaching the garland is easy if you have installed permanent screws in your brick, metal or wood door facing
After green garland is secure, add lime green mesh, bow loops in the middle and single loops in the corners, secure with wire and greenery
2nd and 3rd rolls of mesh added, big loops and tail on each side of doorway
Designer tip: each step should be able to stand alone!
Mesh comes on a roll (different quality and price are available at the retail level). check for good weight and texture to insure it will hold up in inclement weather. best source:
Using the greenery branches, secure the mesh by twisting like a twist tie
Wire on #Dollar Store pumpkin buckets, great focal point low-cost!
Get the most bang for your buck with a pop of Black and white! use wire to secure to garland. Ribbon is available on our website.
Betty, drills a small hole in lollipop sticks to secure to garland with a florist wire, this step is optional
Remember the designer tip? Your design must look complete after each step. You could stop here and celebrate Halloween and add more next year!
Next step is to add 8″ balls as supporting focal points. Glitter polka dots add a whimsical touch to the Hot pink, lime green and turquoise!
The next step is to add large candy lollipops (2 sizes and mixture of colors)! available on our website www.showmedecorating.com
Bright colored candy lollipops and balls add a Halloween treat!
Add the finishing touch with smaller (4″ and 6″) colored balls and sprigs of candy corn picks and it’s done! How many items can we keep for Fall and or Christmas?
Now its time for the fall weather to cool off!
Measure your doorway or entrance to determine how many 9′ (normal length) faux green garlands you will need. Lighted garland with colored lights added in, would add a spooky Halloween touch! Secure garland and leave up to decorate for Halloween, Fall/Thanksgiving and Christmas!
