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! This makes it easy to pull out the Holiday decorations and fill with your everyday decor! Cute Little Monsters frame shows of the grandkids at Halloween.

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.

3 ribbon patterns combined in a half bow are a great finishing touch to the mantel garland.

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

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.

Pallets, pallets, pallets! Have you pinned a pallet transformation? We have, there are so many great ideas and we just had to share what Kathy’s son-in-law Josh created for her daughter while she was away in Midland celebrating Mother’s day. Amanda had collected some pallets from a friend and made a suggestion to Josh for her Mother’s day present! So Josh did what all good husbands do, he went to work!

To quote Josh….

“The transformation of a piece o”!xo#@6%x” pallet to a….uh….I guess a nice little piece of patio table. …….I amaze my self sometimes! Happy mothers day!!”

Josh
