This year, when it came to festive door decor, Rachel says that, “I wanted simple. I wanted a little rustic. But most of all, I wanted free!” She came up with something lovely using the branches her sister trimmed off of her live Christmas tree, and shared the project at Architecture of a Mom.
To turn these branches into a pretty swag, Rachel took a few branches and trimmed them down so it made a manageable bunch, then wrapped twine around them to keep them together. She suggests covering the twine with something more decorative, like fabric, ribbon, or a bouquet wrap. For a finishing touch, Rachel suspended a Christmas tree ornament on her evergreen swag. It looks terrific on her front door–simple, elegant, and very festive.
See the tutorial for this evergreen swag at Architecture of a Mom.
