I know that Christmas is tomorrow…yikes….so to say that I’m late sharing this DIY Frosted Winter Swag tutorial is an understatement, but DIY Winter Swagthis is something you can use throughout the winter season, so it’s not just a Christmas swag, it’s also a winter swag. Plus, it’s better late than never…right?!?

I looked at purchasing a Swag that was dressed with ribbon, pinecones, berries and frost and I was AMAZED at how much those things cost, even with the 50% discount that you can get at Hobby Lobby. I decided to try making my own; I mean how hard could it be?? When everything was said and done I spent a total of $12 and it was exactly what I wanted!

Okay, here is what you need:

  • Garland Swag (I purchased mine from Michaels)
  • Christmas Picks I used two full frosted garland picks with berries and pinecones and 1 small pick with a pinecone and berries
  • Ribbon (I used burlap)
  • Floral wire
  • Wire Cutters
  • Hot Glue Gun

Step 1: Seperate the limbs on your Garland Swag

Step 2: Take your Burlap Ribbon (or Ribbon of choice) and tie it to the swag using your floral wire. You do this by wrapping your floral wire around the burlap and then around piece of greenery. This will keep the ribbon in place.

Step 3: Go about 4-5 inches and then tie the ribbon to another piece of the swag using your floral ribbon.

Attach Burlap to Swag

Do this until you get to the end of the swag.

Step 4: I cut the pinecones off of the two large Christmas Picks using my wire cutters. I also clipped a few pieces of the frosted greenery (I wanted to place them throughout the entire swag).
