How to Make a Christmas Swag


I love making Natural wreaths and Swags for our outdoor holiday decor. I've been making them since I was a child because my family owned a Christmas tree farm. One of my most asked questions during the holidays is "how do you do it?" I'm here to share my tips and tricks!

Making a swag is simple. To begin you'll need to gather a few supplies. Metal coat hanger, balsam fir approx 10 -24" branches, floral wire, ribbon and a few items for decorating.

The trick to easily putting together a swag quick and easy is a metal coat hanger. Bend in the sides and curl in the hook into a loop for easy hanging.

Once you've cut and gathered your brush there are only a few simple steps to putting your swag together. Visit the blog for complete step by step directions, how to assemble your Christmas swag.

Decorating the swag is the best part! I like to use a combination of natural elements like cedar, holly, pine and pinecones. Here I've brightened it up with May Arts Ribbon coloured burlap and oversized bells.

      @Leslie The link doesn't work. That's why I was asking for a new address.
