How to make a CHRISTMAS PINE DOOR SWAG
Package of green floral wire
Fresh Holly,Pine bough,cedar or any evergreen.
Ribbon of choice
Take two pine bough approx:16" long,
Over lay one on the other and fasten with wire.
When wiring the first two boughs leave enough wire in the back to produce a loop , so the finished swag will have a hanger incorporated as shown in the picture.
Start wiring different greens in the arrangement.
This will give a different texture and color to the swag.
Fill in any bare spots with holly or box wood
giving the swag a full appearance.
Wiring pine cones , work the wire directly in under each piece of the cone encompassing the complete pine cone and twist securing the wire to the pine cone.
Note: After securing the pine cone to the wire make sure there is enough wire left to fasten the cone to the swag.
Attach the pine cones directly to the stem of anyone of the boughs, staggering them through out the arrangement.
Add a bow to enhance the swag,leaving two long
tails off the bough.
Hang it on the front door using a wreath hanger.
Your entrance way is now ready to greet any Holiday Guests that may arrive through out the season.
