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.
