Make This Halloween Door Swag DIY In a Day
This Halloween door sway DIY is so easy, you will have it hanging on your door by the afternoon!
- Floral foam block for dry flowers
- Wire cutters
- Assorted flowers, twigs, and grasses – your choice
- Ribbon – your choice but I chose two different patterned ribbons with the same color scheme
- Craft/floral wire
- Floral tape
- Wire coat hanger
*I found everything for this Halloween door sway DIY at the local craft store.
Take your wire coat hanger and bend it flat.
Cut off the end where the hanger curves.
Insert the modified hanger into the floral foam block.
This is the step where the magic happens. Cut all your stem if you purchased flower/grass/sprig bushes. Determine how far you would like your swag to “stick out”, pretty certain there is a better way of saying this. I chose to cut my floral stems in 6, 8, and 10-inch lengths and my sprigs/ grasses… I cut as I went.
I don’t believe in hard fast rules except for the rule of odds and the rule of triangles. Use an odd number of stems, so I had 3 of one type of one flower and 5 of another. When I placed the flowers in the wreath, I tried to create loose triangles in my placement – this will help with creating a balanced look. Do your best but ultimately rely on your “eye” for what feels right.
Place sprigs at the top and bottom in a fan formation. This will give us our height. Once all the florals have been inserted, we will go back and add more sprigs/grass to fill out the front and give a more dimensional look.
Create a few loopy bows to tuck into your wreath. One at the top corner and one at the bottom corner. Add a few long “tails” at the bottom. To keep the whimsical appeal – use a couple of different patterned ribbons. If you need help on making a bow- I have a super simple way ( just click here) to get you comfortable in making them. I keep saying that I need to do a post just on the different ways of creating a bow. Maybe this is the year!
Time to display your beautiful Halloween door swag! This wreath can be used on the porch or in your favorite room. You can even add a few crows or spiders or sugar skulls – whatever makes you happy and makes this uniquely yours.
