Stocking Christmas Swag Tutorial

Hello there Yellow Bliss Readers! Ashley here again from Cherished Bliss! Can you believe we are already getting ready for Christmas?? I feel like we barely got in to fall, and bam, there is snow on the ground! Today I’m here to share with you party of my Christmas Mantel. I actually made these Drop Cloth Stockings last year, but I added a mini Christmas Swag to each of the stockings this year and it was the perfect finishing touch!

You could definitely make these with fresh garland, which I actually prefer, but I put my decorations up so early they die off before Christmas. If you don’t put up your decor until after Thanksgiving then that would totally work for you and I say go for it. I just adore the smell of fresh garland! But let’s talk about these little mini Christmas Swag Stocking Decorations and how easy they are to make!

How to Make Christmas Swag to Decorate your Stockings

Stocking Christmas Swag Tutorial

Using your wire cutters, cut a few pieces fromm you Christmas Stems pairing up the branches that work well together. For this particular stem (that I found at Michaels) I cut a fluffy branch, and one that was more flat.

Once you have the branches snipped off, layer them until you are happy with how it looks. Take your twine and tie a jingle bell on to the end of it and line up your twine with the branches, and top it off with a clipping from your red berry stem.

Wrap the end with your green floral wire to secure everything.

I didn’t permanently attach my Christmas Swag to the stockings because I like to change stuff out from year to year, so I just slipped it up under the bows I have and they just stay there. But if you want to make sure they don’t slip off you could just put a little dot of hot glue and glue them in place.
