DIY Fall Decor|Decorate with Me


Hello I’m Jennifer with Jennifer
Decorates and today’s video I have three super easy Fall decorating ideas, so stay
tuned. This first idea is how to decorate a
planter or an urn. First thing you’re going to need is a wreath. Choose one
whatever you like and whatever makes you happy.
This one I have is just pretty neutral the second thing you’re going to need is
a large pumpkin. Now you could do one of the plastic ones that they sell in the
craft stores. They have them in white and have them in orange and quick sidenote
they look really fake but I figured out a way using some paint to make them look
real. I’ll add that in the description and that’s an easy thing to do. For my
pumpkin, this is another choice you can make I chose one of the grapevine
pumpkins that lights up. So I’m not really crazy about these plastic leaves
on the top. So I’m gonna gently take them off. What I want to add is a bow and so I
really like this striped ribbon so I’m gonna make a first loop like so, come
over and make a second. Now I do have a bow tutorial, so I’ll link to that. This
one’s gonna be just a real easy. I’m just gonna do four loops like that, and then
just make a teeny little center loop right there. Then, take that floral wire
go in, and twist and you’ve got it. Now we’re just going
to attach it to the grapevine pumpkin, twist it on there, and again always
choose ribbon with wire. Holds it better in the outdoor environment and shapes up
better next year. Now I’m just going to kind of make it pretty. Now for this super easy part. You’re
gonna put your wreath on top of your planter or your urn and place my lighted pumpkin, it’s gonna sit right in there, straighten my bow and, you’ve got a
beautiful outdoor fall decoration. I wanted to share with you something
that a vendor showed me that I thought was absolutely brilliant. so I’ve got a
Fall garland here with pumpkins and a little
bit of hydrangeas and berries. He took two cedar picks like this, I wired him
together, slide them under the garland and split them up and fluff them up so
they give some height to the garland. What this also does is add a lot of a
natural look and the pine is just pops off of the orange. I’m just gonna pull it up because they’re
wired and then again I wired two together. When you get to about half of
whereever your garland is, you want to go the opposite direction. And then I’m going to add one more at the end. So look how the cedar added, not only it
gave this garland a natural look, it also added contrast to the orange so that the
orange wasn’t quite so vivid. This next idea is a fall decorating idea
for your door and instead of using a wreath I’m gonna use a basket. Here’s the
basket I chose it’s a little oblong. Great thing about it- it has a hook on
the back. Let me show you the florals I chose there’s three of these. I did two
in this yellow color and one in this beautiful orange color. Then I chose two hydrangea stems, little bit off white, little bit of a kind of a brown-purple color. and then I have two pumpkins picks. One in a beautiful orange and then another in just an off white. First thing I need to do is,
because these stems are a lot longer than these, I want to get all the same
length so I’m gonna snip them shorter. Kind of about right there. I want to stop for
just a second to share something with you. I do a ton of florals and wire
clippers, while they work great, they don’t work really well on florals that
are really really thick. My husband bought me these and these have been a
lifesaver. Now, if you’re just doing florals once in
a wire- ha, if you’re just doing florals once in a while,
wire cutters are great but if you’re gonna have a business doing this or
you’re going to be making a ton, these clippers are a lifesaver. They’re a
little pricey so that’s kind of why I’m saying only if you’re going to be using
wire cutters a lot. You’ve got to trim the other two. Here’s what’s gonna make
this assembly so easy- tie wraps. Gonna take the first
three tall stems, gather them together, and I just go ahead and tie wrap those
together first. Snip them. Next, I’m going to put my hydrangeas on and I’m gonna
tie wrap those on. Now I’m gonna add the pumpkins and I
don’t wanna put the white pumpkin against the white hydrangea because I
really want it to contrast so I’m gonna put it next to that one and the orange
pumpkin next to the white hydrangea. And I tie wrap those together as well and really
tight, and trim it. Now I have a pretty arrangement together. I’ve made a bow for
this arrangement what I’ve done is I’ve also wired it so I’m going to actually
wire it and attach it to the basket and the reason instead of hot gluing it to
the basket is because I can use this basket at Christmastime with a whole
different arrangement. So I’m just threading that wire through the basket
and once it’s in, flip it over. I’m going to twist that wire pull it through, twist
it, and it’s attached now I’m just gonna hang my basket up and I went just a
little bit lower because I know my florals are gonna be kind of tall. Then
you’re just going to place your florals inside, and kind of fluff them out a little bit and then if you
want for added security and I’ve already snipped a little piece, I’ll just wire
one of the floral stems to the back of the basket. Now if a big storm comes
it’s not gonna blow out. So this was another super easy fall
decorating idea and when fall is over, you take the florals out, they’re already
tied together ready for the next year. I would put them in a bag to store them to
keep dust off of them, then you can totally repurpose this basket at
Christmastime popping a Christmas bow on it and then putting Christmas stems. I
love projects that are easy to do. I hope you enjoyed this video, let me know which
one of these decorations you liked the best and be sure to subscribe to my
