a Simple Swag

This took less than 10 mins to put together!  I bought this inexpensive swag {had the typical red bow & pine cones} with the intention of adding my own ribbon & sprigs.  This is just the swag, six sprigs {from Michael's}, ribbon, tulle & lace.  I tucked in my sprigs {layering them starting with with largest & heaviest & working up to the smaller & wispy}, placed a couple of squares of tulle & lace in the middle, wrapped my ribbon around the center & tied a bow.  After I had everything in place, I just used small pieces of green wire to tack everything down.  To buy basic & add on can save so much money.  I spent less than $20 on making this {otherwise probably would've cost $40+ if purchased pre-assembled}.   


  1. I just came across your blog and am in love with your great photography/uses for mason jars! Looking forward to following your blog - Happy Holidays!
