how to make a Christmas door swag from tree clippings in a few minutes and a video
The only person who may have trouble making this Christmas door swag is Charlie Brown. I think his Christmas tree would be short on tree clippings. But if he lived near a nursery, tree farm or tree lot Charlie Brown could make a cute Christmas door swag for the front door of Snoopy’s dog house …in a few minutes.
Seriously, once you gather your supplies (see below) this is a quick craft.
If you have visited Everyday Edits you know I am not a crafter. However, after making this 3-minute ornament on my youtube channel I kind of got the craft bug.
I think that video is in the running for the fewest view in 2020-2021.
The supply list is as short as the time it takes to make this holiday door swag. And, your entry will smell like fresh pine.
CHRISTMAS DOOR SWAG SUPPLY LIST
- fresh boughs of pine branches
- bells or other ornamental swag
- wire or ties or ribbon (in a pinch you could use a bread tie)
- bows or ribbons
It’s all about the base …
The boughs, branches, or even artificial leftover garland work for the base layer. I always snag a few pounds of pine clippings from our Christmas tree farm. Not our tree farm, but the one we go to for our Christmas tree.
Followed by the bells. I found this bell swag from Homegoods before Thanksgiving. It was from Martha Stewart’s holiday line.
I am obsessed with bells.
The bells came with a burlap bow so I threaded the bells over the branches and tied them together with a wired jute cord from the Dollar Store.
By the way, I love this stuff. I am new to the Dollar Store fan club, but this stuff has brought out my inner crafty side.
I added a red bow that was my first attempt to make a bow.
And, then I fluffed it up and ta-da!
You guys it is prettier than my entry and front door combined.
I added Santa next to the door.

Thank you. Oh and that bell obsession I mentioned? Here is what I did with bells earlier this season.
