Show Me a Halloween Mantel DIY
Mantels and fireplaces are great areas to decorate for the Holiday season!
Theme: Halloween, this years color story for Halloween is orange and black, with a pop of black and white!
This white-painted fireplace and mantle show off the Orange and Black used in Halloween decorating!
A great base for the mantel decoration is a garland to work in and out of the Halloween decorations.
Using two garlands twisted together is a great backdrop to the Halloween blocks, pumpkins and candle holder. I like to use a group of three.
Next add the finishing touch, ribbon.
easy 1,2,3 half bow
Wire the half bow ties into the garland, wire on the Polka Dot Bats and the Halloween mantle is complete!

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.
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!
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.
This garland could also be used on a buffet, bookcase, or as the centerpiece for your dining table.
Celebrate the season and decorate key areas in your home for family and friends to enjoy. Choose quality ingredients, wired garlands and florals, Wired ribbon, and focal points to make a statement. 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.
This beautiful Country french home welcomes in the cool crisp air of fall and celebrates the harvest season. How will you decorate and celebrate?
Happy Fall Decorating y’all,

Cooler Temperatures, Warm colors, and pumpkins! It’s time for Fall! You can decorate now and leave up until Christmas. Whoo Hoo more bang for your buck.
Are you wild about Mesh? Or nervous about how to use it? We love it when it’s used in moderation and doesn’t overwhelm. Mixing orange glitter mesh and burlap mesh adds a great fall texture and color to this doorway. A quality 9′ faux green garland is a great base to layer on your fall decorations. (reuse with a Christmas theme) Attach screws into brick mortar or wood framing and leave in so you are always ready to create a grand entranceway!
Mixing ribbon colors, patterns and textures creates interest.
Burlap mesh in green and natural is added next, overlapping and switching back and forth. Mesh curls are created by cutting shorter lengths of mesh and rolling up. Burlees and metal pumpkins are used as focal points, followed by half bows. Wire in shatterproof balls (in coordinating colors and varying sizes and textures) Next add the floral stems of glitter leaves and pumpkin picks.
Welcome Fall with Show Me Decorating! We love @GloryHaus Fall Burlees and the pumpkins come in different finishes. All decorating ingredients available at ShowMeDecorating.com or at Miss Cayce’s Christmas Store in Midland, Tx
Happy Fall Decorating Ya’ll,

Decorating for Halloween can be scary, but with
Show Me Decorating it’s fun!
Becky loves to decorate for all of the seasons and holidays. It begins with a theme (Halloween) and a color story (orange, black and white). Ghosts, Pumpkins, and Boo take center stage for Halloween, but notice how the black and white pops out! This year Halloween is taking place in stages so be sure and follow us on facebook and pinterest to see it evolve!
This entrance is perfect for an over the door garland. Here it is before-
Did you know you can use your green garland from Christmas as your base? Save yourself some $$$-then add in fun decorative Halloween garlands!
Place like items first alternating placement and location. We like to use florist wire to attach items securely to the base garland.

The house is decorated and now it is time for a party and Trick or Treaters!!!
I wanted to share pictures of my Halloween house decorations!
I love pumpkins and mums because they do double duty! I enjoy them for Halloween all the way thru to Thanksgiving! I decided to create a pumpkin patch in my flower beds and left my mums in pots and added the pumpkins in with the plants left over from summer.
Welcome trick or treaters! I am more fun than scary. I love the pop of Black and White!
The orange pumpkins glow on the mantel with their foil finish! notice the same candle sticks and orange candles? Not everything has to change out! I love double duty decorating!Now we are ready for a party, or should I say parties! Once I am decorated I will host multiple parties, and get double even triple duty from my decorations! Tables, chairs, serving pieces are all ready so let the party begin……. Fun simple food is the way to go! So many ideas from Pinterest, Woman’s Day, Better Homes and Gardens, TomKat Studios and the list goes on and on! I chose a chili bar with all the fixins!
