Show Me Decorating Tip: Pick out a focal area to decorate seasonally, entry table, sofa table, top of the piano, island or bar in the kitchen, mantle, buffet, or dining table. Store your decorations in clear tubs, marked with the holiday!

Show Me a Personalized Fall Fireplace

Show Me a Personalized Fall Fireplace……as easy as 1,2,3!

The heart of the home, the fireplace,  is a focal point for seasonal decorating.

This beautiful Country French home is no exception.

Beautiful mantel "before" Show Me Decorating Fall DIY transformation

Beautiful mantel “before” Show Me Decorating Fall DIY transformation

Take a look at your everyday decor and edit. On this mantel we removed the candle sticks, bowl, frame, tray and glass candle holder. The rooster and potted topiary stayed to be part of the fall decorating.

Now it is time to select the fall decorating items. A green garland traditionally used at Christmas is a great base to start with. Wired fall garlands can be layered and wired in, no glue needed. We call it making the garlands one!

Green base garland, twister grass garland in fall colors and a fall leaf garland.

Now it is time to put the garland on the mantel.

Show Me Tip: Measure your mantel to determine how many garlands you will need for your Fall DIY. Green garlands and some novelty garlands are 9′ long.  Next decide how you will attach the garlands to the mantel if it is not wide enough for the garlands to lay on top. You can use nails, tea-cup hooks, wire and even C-clamps.

We used 1 of each garland for this decorating Fall project.

Personalizing an item with the family name or initial adds a personal touch. Edit everyday decor leaving complimentary items that coordinate with your seasonal decorating.

How-To Halloween Garland

Follow Me on Pinterest

 

Check out all of our Halloween products on the website here!

Trick or treats? “How to” Halloween garland for Miss Cayce’s front entrance!

Everyone feels like a kid when Halloween rolls around! What was your favorite candy to receive? Did you ever get the wax coke bottles filled with a liquid treat?

or how about the wax lips and teeth?

Did you know whose house gave out the best candy?

If you love Halloween and decorating as we do you, you will love this simple, easy, step by step garland used on our front entrance at Miss Cayce’s Christmas Store in Midland, Texas, home to Show Me Decorating!

We hope you enjoy decorating and cooler fall weather. Watch as we transform this garland to fall and Christmas, in upcoming post!

Smiling pumpkin welcomes visitors! Happy Halloween!

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:
www.showmedecorating.com

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!

Viva Fiesta! Show Me some Streamers

Follow Us on Pinterest

Fiesta Time!

Whether you live in San Antonio enjoying 11 days of parades, festivals and more or you are having a Fiesta themed party for Cinco de Mayo or Graduation Celebrations.

  Show Me Decorating can Show you how with some easy to follow steps for making a fabulous Fiesta wreath.

 

Flowers, flowers, flowers, take center stage for Fiesta! Ribbon, bright, colorful and fun for streamers! Wow, what a statement. Coordinating wreaths for double doors!

Open up the back of the wreath and touch every branch as you shape moving around the back.

  Use a pipe cleaner (chenille stem) on the back as a loop to hang your wreath. Wrap two chenille stems together (for strength) and attach to wire frame, now turn the wreath around and see how the pine branches grow, shaping and fluffing out.

Focal points add interest, we love @Round Top Collection for metal pieces and of course a bow using the www.app.showmedecorating.com

 Fiesta is all about vivid colors and we fell in love with this embroidered ribbon from @Farrisilk. It reminded us of the Fiesta Queen’s dresses. Place your ingredients in a triangle pattern.

  Place flowers in a triangle, add a needle point ivy for filler and interest to the green pine base. Shape flowers and remember every flower has a face so make sure it shows.

We tied a full big bow (1 of the focal points in the 1st triangle) with a print ribbon, solid, mesh, and streamers. Add in half bows as you fill in the wreath and your triangles.

Fiesta is all about the streamers. It’s a great way to make a colorful statement and inexpensive! We tied our streamers (@ReliantRibbon) onto a heavy piece of wire or you could use the flat part of a hanger, then we attached it to our wreath base. You can remove it for easier storage, or take off for a different look.

 Completed Wreathes by our Show Me Decorating San Antonio Team!

Now, you can make your own or contact Jennifer@showmedecorating.com if you would like one of the above or fill out this form:
