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!

Open or close doors….Ist Impressions

I st impressions matter!

Will Your 1st Impression, Open or Close Doors?

You never get a second Chance to make a 1st Impression!

You CANNOT, NOT make a first impression.

 

People always form an initial impression about us, our homes, our offices, our businesses the 1st time they come in contact with us, in person, over the telephone or at our front door.

The experts differ on the number of seconds it takes to create a 1st impression, but between 7-17 !

Vision leads the pack of our senses used to make a first impression, smell is second.

Cleaning, sweeping, fresh paint, clean glass, cobwebs, etc (don’t miss up high)

 

“The 1st time I passed through the country of Switzerland, I had the impression it was swept down with a broom from one end to the other every morning by housewives who dumped all the dirt in Italy” Argentinean Journalist

A Welcoming Entryway

  • Pots

    Round Top metal pumpkin with purple and lime green dots! I love the way the green sweet potato vine pops against the orange

Assorted sizes, proportion to entry way, freshly planted and maintained

  • Flower Beds

Cleaned, trimmed, planted, mulch

  • Furniture
  • My bench with fall cushions, new fall wreath on the front door, notice the lime green berries that coordinate with my color scheme!

A bench, chairs, pillows, and rugs allows you to treat your front porch like an outdoor room. Leave plenty of access and don’t overcrowd.

  • Lighting

Nice fixtures, sconces, all price ranges, sizes and colors or finishes,

  • Wreath, door piece or banner

What Season is it?

Everyday- coordinate with the color of door, house trim and brick. make sure the wreath or door piece is proportionate to the size door. step and view from the street.

 

Summer- consider a “fun”doorpiece to celebrate summer! flip flops, sunglasses, beach toys and garden tools

 

Fall/ Halloween- many wreaths and door pieces can be created to change from fall to Halloween and back to fall. adding some spooky is fun for trick or treaters. celebrate the beginning of fall and school starting with a decoration made from school supplies!

Welcome Trick or Treaters!

Wire on fall garland and fall picks, add ribbon bow and a fall sign as your focal point

Christmas –this is the time to go all out! add the sparkle and shine!

 

Winter/ Valentines- a plain grapevine wreath accented with a large fun bow can be placed after Christmas, think about adding a valentine or oversized heart to celebrate Valentines Day

Welcome to my home! Happy Valentines day!

Easter/ Spring- bright greens (St. Patricks Day) are a welcome sign after a cold winter, easter grass and easter eggs, complete with a basket and bunny can make a welcome entrance way!

Show Me a Champagne Toast …….Bow?

We love to decorate with Glitter! We have a famous saying at Miss Cayce’s! “Get Glittered or go home!” After a trip to the store you will always have a touch a shine! This tree is named “Champagne Toast” and I think you will agree. With the touch of mink, glitter and sparkle, it is ready for a night on the town or your living room!

When selecting a theme, and color story with start with ribbon. We love to layer ribbons for drama and interest! This is a brown velvet, Leopard print and glittery silver and gold. The “Mink Stole” will be added to the tree in lengths!

We selected our ribbon based on our Theme, Champagne Toast

Step 1, make a loop and twist

Step 2, make another loop and twist

Step 3, cut top ribbon

Step 4, add next ribbon loop and twist

Step 5, make another loop and twist

Step 6, cut second ribbon

Step 7, add wire across middle, twist behind to secure

Step 8 Next is brown velvet and we tie the same just making the loops slightly bigger to show after we place the 1st bow on top

When tying larger bows it is easier to tie them separately and then wire together!

To see a video get the app!

http://www.bowapp.showmedecorating.com

Step 10,We made 2 loops on each side, cut, and wired over middle to secure

Step 11, Now we will place 1st bow on top of brown velvet and wire on to secure!

Step 12, Bow is almost finished! Love the glitter!

Pull out loops so all ribbon is showing!

Step 13, For an extra special touch, a clip on leopard print flower is added

Flower with clip

Bow is finished! Now it is time to decorate!
