I think the cool kids are calling it, "Door Swag"?
Here's how it all went down.
1. Tied bow to evergreen bough. (This was a go with the wind type of project. I wasn't sure how it was all going to turn out so yes, the picture is a bit out of order.)
2. Looped the ribbon for the door hanger through the loop of the bow.
3. I came across a set of fake cranberries at the grocery store and added them for a pop of color. The wired stems made these easy to insert and arrange.
I liked what I had but thought it was missing something,
4. So I made three, white stars. I have a ton of leftover quilt batting that I'm determined to find small projects for. It turned out to be perfect for adorning my swag. I cut two for each star, quickly sewed them together with the machine and then gave each a quick blanket stitch with embroidery thread.
Not bad for a project that is made entirely of free or laying around the craft pile things, right? Now if only I could figure out a way to install an outside outlet so we could have some twinkly lights outside, I'd finally feel like our Christmas decorations were complete.
