Hello Remodelaholic readers! This is Ananda from A Piece of Rainbow, where I share creative DIYs for the home and garden!
It seems like just yesterday when I shared with you the Easy Diy Pinecone Wreath tutorial here. Now it’s that time of year again! Today we are going to make something beautiful for your holiday decor: a Christmas Swag !
This beautiful Christmas swag is that is unbelievably easy to make, for almost free! All you need is 10 minutes, a mixed variety of botanical clippings, some twine and a couple of ribbons!

How to Make a Fresh Evergreen Christmas Swag

Some great candidates are pine, cedar, spruce, boxwood, holly, etc.
You will be making 3 bundles. The first bundle is the largest, made of all evergreen branches. Simply tie the group of branches together with twine. Make the knot as tight as you can.
Make the second bundle using branches of different colors and textures.
I used some silvery fine textured leafy branches, and some red berry branches here.
Place the second bundle on top of the first one, and tie them together with twine.
Make the third bundle using shorter branches than the first two. You can use any mix of colors and textures!
Tie it to the first two bundles, but pointing the opposite direction, as shown in photo above.
To add a festive touch, let’s make a bow for our Christmas swag with a big ribbon! The video tutorial shows you how to tie this bow!
Use floral wire or paper clips, and attach the bow to the swag where the 3 bundles are tied together. This will hide the twines, and add a nice decorative accent!
I decided to use two bows, one gold, and one green! It is, after all, the most wonderful time of the year, right? 🙂
We love this Christmas swag on our door!
You can use your swag not only on a door, but also on a railing, mailbox, or wall sconce! See how pretty it looks on our wall light?
Now I am going to go and make more of these swags! Below are a few of my favorite DIY projects you can check out on my blog!
