Make it Monday : Swag for the door

Remember last week when I showd you the swag I wanted to make for the door?
Here is how mine turned out :
I started off with some branches and tied them together with elastic
I found these at the dollarstore....
Took the garland and the balls off so I was left with only the bell. I attached the bells to the ribbon and tried to attach the bells to the elactic...but the bells were too big so it looked funny. I had to re-think what I was going to do... I decided to use the balls from each bell instead.

I attached the balls with elastic
 And then tucked it under the elastic holding the branches together
Finally I wrapped it all in ribbon and hung in on the door.
The only thing I am thinking is that I should use a different colour ribbon...the brown just blends in....
Isn't it funny how sometimes things don't work out the way you wanted them too but then you end up loving the new way even more?! hah  I love when that happens!!!


  1. Found you from TT&J! Awesome job on the swag! It looks great! Love the gold on it!

  2. Love it! It's simple and festive. I may steal this idea! Would you link it up to my party?

  3. It looks perfect Ashley.
