If you love the smell of pine, here is an inexpensive and easy way to make a lovely scented Christmas Evergreen Swag wreath that I guarantee will make your front door look festive.
There its something wonderful of the smell of pine for the holidays. I love gathering a bunch of evergreen and placing it in a basket because it makes everything in my home smell great.
The red studded berries make the swag stand out and the black and white bow is the final touch of this swag.
Supplies Needed To Make Christmas Swag Wreath:
- Pine clipping: (Clip from a Pine tree. )
- Red Berries: (Clip from a holly tree or buy them faux at Amazon.)
- Pinecones: (Pick them up on my walks.)
How To Start:
Gathering the pine clippings
Layout the Pine clipping out. Around two large ones should be good for the swag. Use gloves when handling the pine clippings. The pines have spikes on them.
Tie the Pine clippings:
Place one of the pine clipping below the other and tie both together tightly.
Adding the Holly Berries:
For the berries I cut several shapes. A large berry branch to place down the center of the swag and and some smaller branches to place randomly around the swag.
How To Add The Pinecones:
Attach the pinecones by wrapping the wire around the top of the pinecone. Attach it to the branch part of the swag. The pinecones should hang down.
Creating The Bow:
Gather about 1/2 yard of the ribbon and fold it into you have about 8 layers of ribbon. Take the wire and tie it in the middle. Take the layers apart until it forms a bow. Tie the bow at the top of the swag.
Hang your new Christmas evergreen swag wreath on your front porch.
