Make a door swag

Begin with a block of styrofoam that is about 2″ x 4″ x 11″.  This will be the base for your swag.

How to make a swag for your front doorThe first step to making your swag is to give yourself a hanger to hang it from the door where you will be displaying it.  Using an 18 gauge floral wire, bend it in half and stick it through your piece of styrofoam.  Before pulling it all the way through, you must secure the wire with something to keep it from cutting and being pulled all the way through your foam block.  I like to use a piece of paper wrapped wire in a “W” or “M” pattern that will keep the wire from pulling through.  On the back side of the foam, wind your wire into a circle to hang on your hook.  To protect your door, wrap the wire in a pipe cleaner.  How to add pumpkins and gourds to your fall swagUsing some small pumpkins and wood sticks, puncture the pumpkins and push the stick into the styrofoam.  DIY fall front door swagI repeated this with another pumpkin and a pick of faux acorns.  This will be my focal point in the swag. fall swag tutorialI added a gourd and began to tuck some fall leaves amongst my larger pieces.  I used fall leaf picks from the Dollar Tree and cut them apart into individual stems.   diy fall swagContinue to tuck leaves in all around the featured items on your swag. How to make a door swagContinue to fill in the swag with fall leaves, you will save your fall flowers to top your swag.  How to make a swag for your front doorBegin to add flowers, with longer blossoms first.  I added some fall colored wisteria to hang down in my swag.  How to make a swag for your front doorYou can see the wisteria more in this photo.

How to Use Flowers for a Beautiful Fall Door Swag

Fall door swag is perfect to bring length and fullness to your front door. Wreaths are our usual decorative item for any holiday, big occasions, or for seasonal adornment. Why not try something different this fall instead of the usual fall wreath? A swag could definitely be a better alternative!

Nature blesses us with plenty of produce and flowers this season, which can be used for crafting many door decorations, especially some cute-looking swags.

Fall Door Swag Supplies:

A wire clothes hanger

Flowers of choice (fresh or artificial)

Fall Door Swag Directions:

  1. Bring together the both sides of the wire hanger to create an oblong shape for hanging the flowers and decorative pieces.
  2. Take the longer pieces of greenery and use it to cover the hanger base. Secure it by wrapping floral wire around it. Now, take the pieces of greenery one by one and attach them to the wire base with floral wire. It will create a layered look, add texture, and above all, ensure the structural integrity to your swag.
  3. Now, it’s time to add the flowers. Add layers of flowers with bigger ones first and smaller ones on them. You can secure them with floral wire or hot glue.
  4. Glue or wire the ornaments or seasonal embellishments in a way they look nice.
  5. Make a bow with the red and gold striped ribbon and attach it to the upper part of the base. Leave long tails of the bow to make a loop with them.
  6. Now, hang the swag on your door to give your guests a warm welcome and add more curb appeal to your home.
