Got your Christmas Swag on??
My kids would say... really? Mom??
You're too old to be using the word "swag"...
Well, I actually have hung my Christmas swag!
I'm going to share with you my little trick to make it quick!
I'm wondering if I'm going overboard. I mean, do you have a little Christmas in almost every room in the house?
I think I do... Well, maybe not my bedroom and bath.... yet... :)
I just love this time of year! It's so sparkly!
In fact, I've been working on something so shiny and sparkly.
I can't wait to show you! Hopefully soon!
That first picture is my Christmas swag and
I can put the whole thing up in a jif!
Here we go!
First, I put up the fabric.
Each year I leave the ties in each spot that needs to tied.
I know... you like my fancy pipe cleaners. :)
You won't see them, I promise.
I swag it all the way to the top. See, I have ties of the same fabric that get tied over the pipe cleaners.
A couple of years ago, I made these
Christmas Floral Hangers.
For lack of a better word... I wanted to call them bunches, or maybe I should have called them bouquets.... Oh well, hangers it is.
I made a bunch of them, 6 in all.
There were really easy to make.
I just picked up some Christmas picks and some long berries and greenery.
Then I put them together and wound some floral wire around them to keep them together.
Made a monster bow and tied that on to the whole thing. I really love the wired ribbon, it keeps year after year!
Then all I did was bend the end of the branches down, so I can "hang" it.
This next part is the SUPER easy part.
I just slip it through the ties on my swag.
See...I told you....easy!
So, every year, I just have to "hang" them up.
Until I get tired of them and want to do something else... :)
It just needs a little something more.
There, Ta Da!
I hung a little green right over the top of the "bouquets".
That really is a better description!
You could hang these anywhere.
I had an extra one and I hung it on a lamp shade.
You could hang them on a door knob.
Oh the possibilities...
