Making swags is easy. Wire, boughs, outdoor red bows and woods (or neighbors property when they are not home during the day- ahhh the benefits of being a stay at home mom!)
We put the same snowman flag up each year. Kids still think it great. I also stuff the little sleigh and flower pot with white pine, holly & other types of pine I find around the outside of the house. I am lucky we have a giant holly bush!
Festive and Free!
