Gorgeously Victorian, swags are a beautiful way to decorate your doors and windows for Christmas. Easier to create than wreaths, swags can be made using seasonal evergreens or artificial materials to match your decor and tastes and are the perfect wreath alternatives.
Here are some beautiful swags that will inspire you to create or buy your own to decorate your home for Christmas.
Outdoor Christmas Decorating begins at the door. Create a homespun swag for your door this Christmas. Gather pine boughs laden with pinecones. Attach stuffed, fabric ornaments. Use red ribbon to tie a bow at the top along with a bauble.
Colorful for the Kids
Not just for kids really, this brightly colored swag is perfect for Christmas window decorating whether indoors or outdoors. A snowy cedar branch is used over a plain pine swag.
