Want to dress up your front door for the holidays but looking for something other than a round wreath? A Christmas swag is the answer! Crafted from faux evergreen, this traditional holiday door decoration is easy to make and will last for years so you can enjoy it season after season.
This classic DIY Christmas swag wreath can be easily customized any way you like. Change up the bow color and other accents to put your own spin on it. Follow the directions below to make yours now!
Lay the swag on your work surface. Center the mixed pine sprays vertically on the swag, placing one spray pointing toward the top and one toward the bottom (with stems meeting toward the middle). Wire the sprays to the swag. Use florist's wire to attach additional pine cones as you like to the middle of the swag, centering them on the swag vertically and slightly below center.
To make the bow, cut a 40-inch length of ribbon. Leaving a 10-inch tail, make a 5-inch loop, holding the ribbon between your thumb and index finger. Continue holding the ribbon, and make a second loop the same size in the opposite direction. Continue until you have six loops. Wrap wire around the bow center, not trimming the wire ends. For the remaining bow tails, wire the remaining piece of ribbon to the center. Trim the wire and ribbon ends.
Use florist's wire to attach the bow, placing it toward the top of the swag just above the pine cones.
Hot-glue artificial red berry clusters to the Christmas swag, positioning so they fan out from the swag center.
