Christmas Door Swag – by Darsie Bruno

WELCOME!  Welcome to our blog and project this evening by Darsie.  I think we all like to WELCOME our friends and guests into our home.  And there is nothing more welcoming than a beautifully adorned door for our guests to enjoy immediately upon their arrival.  Darsie created such a project for us today.  She created a lovely Christmas Door Swag from simple twigs and adorned the top with ribbon and other ribbon-type embellishments.  Darsie made her Christmas Door Swag for indoor use and I just love how it looks hanging on the older white wooden door — absolutely charming and just perfect!!!  And as an aside, I live in a house that is 110 years old, so I know all about old wooden doors, and old wooden “everything” – LOL!  Let’s take a look at Darsie’s door swag:


I wish I could just walk through that door and sit and have a cup of coffee with Darsie!

I personally love these traditional colors and the classic stripes and gingham checks for decorating during the Christmas season.  Below is another popular ribbon in gingham checks, perfect for the holidays as well.
