easy holiday swag
you will need:
greenery (check for free stuff at tree cutting stands and consider using things like rosemary, from your backyard)
a twist tie
faux flowers or berries–mine are paper flowers from the craft store
colorful ribbon–I used 1 inch wide red grosgrain ribbon I had on hand
three easy steps:
1. Lay the greenery down on a flat surface, putting the big stuff on the bottom and graduating to the smaller stuff on top. If you trim the place where it’s all tied together, it will make your life much simpler. You’re basically making a big, flat bouquet.
2. Secure with a twist tie. I re-used a green one from our twinkly lights. hello free.
3. Add *weather safe* embellishments–flowers, berries, little ornaments–securing them with wire (my flowers came on wire stems) or hot glue and wrap a colorful ribbon around the twist tie part to hide it and add a little more color. Tuck the ribbon into itself and–voila!–you’re done.
Go hang that bad boy on your front door and spread some cheer to all!
