Start by layering evergreen boughs on a flat surface to create a base. Top with fabric branches and add more natural greenery, if necessary. Once you're happy with the swag's appearance, use fine-gauge multipupose wire and the copper wire ends of 2 of the fabric boughs to secure the fresh and fabric greenery together (Image 1). Tip: Wrap the third piece of copper wire around the bundled branches just once then create a hook for hanging the finished swag from a nail or knocker on your front door. Finally, add a fabric bow to cover the wrapped wire and and attach the glittered pinecones (Image 2).
