Let’s make the Live Evergreen Swag:

This swag is made in three parts. First, the live evergreens are formed into the swag. Next, the streamers are made. Lastly, the recycled bow is added.

  1. Fold the 30″ bow wire in half and put it in the Bowdabra. Tuck the ends of the wire under the Bowdabra to keep them out of the way.Wire in Bowdabra Gold
  2. Strip greenery from the top 2½” to 3″ of the branch. Add branches to the Bowdabra, beginning with the longest. Add Greenery to Bowdabra
  3. Continue to layer greenery into the Bowdabra.Contine Layering Greenery in Bowdabra
  4. With the live branches still in the Bowdabra, pass the wire ends through the loop, tighten, and tie a secure knot.  Wrap the wire ends tightly around the branches, and tie a second knot to secure the bundle.Pass Wire Ends through Loop
  5. Now, let’s make the long streamers for the swag. Dovetail the ends of the ribbons by folding the ribbon in half and cutting the fold at an angle. Quickly pass the ribbon ends through a flame to seal.Dovetail Ribbons
