How to use leftover event florals to make family keepsake swags


First, build your base bow and tie with Bowdabra bow wire.  Add flowers.

Then, continue adding base bows and flowers in between.

Keep coming up from the bottom with longer cascading flowers.  The longer stems build a strong foundation for your swag.

Build your keepsake swag in three separate sections.  Tie them together with zip ties for extra security and stability.

Fluff and arrange the bows and florals.

Each door swag is more beautiful than the previous one.  So let’s keep on going!
