Instructions

Instructions:

Open up the boxes of the white Christmas trees and remove the bases. You can toss those in the trash. Lay the trees so the ends are overlapping each other. Secure with a good amount of hot glue and some twine.

Use the twist tie on the back of the bow to secure it to the center of where the trees meet and tie it back tightly.

Using wire cutters or scissors clip off sections of the gold berries and add those to either side of the bow, securing it with hot glue

I next laid the pine picks in an x shape and secure them to the backside of the trees with hot glue, allowing them to stick out a bit

I then added the berries with hot glue randomly around the gold berries on both sides

Add some of the silver pieces of the vase filler to add some extra color!

Every Christmas, my great-grandma had a beautiful white door swag hung on her front door. It was a tradition that she had been following for as long as I can remember. I can still recall the joy that filled my heart every time I saw it.

The door swag was made from pine branches, sprigs of evergreen, and white poinsettias intertwined with tiny white lights. It was the perfect decoration to welcome my family and friends into my great-grandma’s home on the holidays.

I always looked forward to the days when we’d go to her house for Christmas. We’d get out of the car and I’d be mesmerized by the sight of that door swag. It was like a symbol of joy and happiness that only the holidays could bring.

My great grandma had a special way of making every holiday special. She was always the one to make sure that our traditions were followed and that we had a memorable holiday season. I’m sure that’s why she hung the door swag every year — to remind us of the special times we had spent together.

Every time I see this white door swag, I’m taken back to those wonderful days at my great grandma’s house. The smell of freshly baked cookies, the laughter of my family, and the cozy warmth of her home. It was a special place, and the door swag was the perfect reminder of how wonderful it was.

It’s been many years since my great grandma’s house was filled with holiday cheer. But I’ll always remember the special times we shared there, and the heartfelt memories of the white Christmas door swag that hung on her door.
