a few of the supplies for making halloween door swag

Step 1- Prep the Base

Take your wire coat hanger and bend it flat.

Cut off the end where the hanger curves.

Insert the modified hanger into the floral foam block.

Step 2 – All about the Greenery

This is the step where the magic happens. Cut all your stem if you purchased flower/grass/sprig bushes. Determine how far you would like your swag to “stick out”, pretty certain there is a better way of saying this. I chose to cut my floral stems in 6, 8, and 10-inch lengths and my sprigs/ grasses… I cut as I went.

I don’t believe in hard fast rules except for the rule of odds and the rule of triangles.  Use an odd number of stems, so I had 3 of one type of one flower and 5 of another.  When I placed the flowers in the wreath, I tried to create loose triangles in my placement – this will help with creating a balanced look. Do your best but ultimately rely on your “eye” for what feels right.

Place sprigs at the top and bottom in a fan formation. This will give us our height. Once all the florals have been inserted, we will go back and add more sprigs/grass to fill out the front and give a more dimensional look.

Step 2 arrange the flowers

Step 2 continue adding the florals until the swag looks full


Step 3 – Add the Fluff

Create a few loopy bows to tuck into your wreath. One at the top corner and one at the bottom corner. Add a few long “tails” at the bottom. To keep the whimsical appeal – use a couple of different patterned ribbons. If you need help on making a bow- I have a super simple way (just click here) to get you comfortable in making them. I keep saying that I need to do a post just on the different ways of creating a bow.  Maybe this is the year!

Step 3 add fun ribbon!
