DIY Christmas Swag Step 1: Collect Branches

Collect some evergreen and berry branches from nature. You can also purchase online, such as here or here.

Some great candidates are pine, cedar, spruce, boxwood, holly, etc.

DIY Christmas Swag Step 2: Three Bundles

You will be making 3 bundles. The first bundle is the largest, made of all the evergreen branches. Simply tie the  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.

Now you have 2 of the 3 bundles.

Place the second bundle on top of the first one, and tie them together with twine.

DIY Christmas Swag Step 3: Final Bundle

Make the third bundle using shorter branches than the first two. Use any mix of colors and textures! Leftover short branches from your evergreens or something completely different. It’s up to you!

Tie the third bundle to the first two bundles, but pointing the opposite direction, as shown in photo above.

DIY Christmas Swag Step 4: Bows

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? 🙂
