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.

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?

Christmas Entrance in Whimsical colors

Elegant traditional with a touch of whimsy will please any age. These home owners recently became grandparents and wanted a child pleasing welcome for their grand front entrance. Lots of classic green and gold were used to compliment the buck and traditional style of the home. Whimsical signs with lots of white were added to the garland wreath and door way for a lively touch.

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….

Josh

The table would also look great painted your favorite color, distress it with sanding and then finish with a coat of swipe on poly !
