Fall Decor for the Decorating Impaired

For some of us, decorating doesn't come easy. I think that's why one of our most popular videos right now shows how to decorate a Fall lantern in two easy steps.

SAY WHAT?!?!!? You read that correctly....ONLY TWO STEPS!! 

After that video was posted on Facebook, the most prevalent comment was, "Even I could do that!" Let me tell SO could!

Now that your blood is pumping and your confidence is building, how would you like to make an adorable Fall wreath in just a few easy steps?

I thought so. ;-)

Things you'll need:

-A wreath. You could use a straw wreath, a grapevine wreath or any type of wreath, really. For the sake of argument, I've chosen a maple leaf wreath. Very Fall-y, don't you think?

-A scarecrow kit. These handy kits consist of the head, two arms, and two legs AND can be found at your nearest Trees n Trends. :-)

-Wire or some other means of fastening the legs to the wreath. You see, the head, arms, and legs have dowel rods to stick into the wreath; the legs do not.

- Ribbon. This isn't a necessity but it sure does make it look like a lot more work went into making your scarecrow wreath than it actually did. ('ll be our little secret!)

You put all of it together and...

And there you have it. An easy Fall wreath that you made all by yourself. (When you tell your friends, remember to omit the word "easy".)

Did You Know You Could Do That?

I'm flabbergasted right now.

As much as I use Pinterest, I have just now discovered a "new" tool they came out with in the latter part of LAST YEAR. Yes, that's right, this tool has been around nearly a full year and I'm just now finding out about it. #wherehaveibeen

"When you spot something in a Pin that you want to learn more about, tap the search tool in the corner. Then select the part of the Pin you’re interested in, and we’ll show you Pins just like it. You can even filter your visual search results by topic so you find exactly what you’re looking for.”"

For instance: Let's say I'm looking at the pin below and I want to know more about the polygonal item on the upper shelf on the right. I click on the magnifying glass with four corners. (The yellow arrow is pointing at it-- IMO, I think it's a little obscure.)

By clicking on the magnifying glass, you'll get a scalable box.

This is where you can grab any of the corners and zone-in on exactly what you're searching for.

On the right side, you'll notice a list of images that are similar to the one highlighted. You can scroll through and find information on it (i.e., where it's sold, the price, ect). 

Oddly enough, I found that this quirky polygon is sold at Trees n Trends. Same goes for everything else in the photo. ;-)
