1 Holiday Swag, 4 Fuss-Free Ways to Decorate

A holiday swag full of festive greenery, berries, pinecones, and a pretty ribbon is a simple way to add a touch of Christmas to your home. Of course, a swag is perfect for a front door or mailbox—but what about some of the other areas of your home if you want to try something a bit different?

Today I am sharing 4 ideas on where to hang those gorgeous holiday swags to add the perfect amount of holiday cheer to your home.

On a Cupboard

I have a chippy vintage cupboard in the dining room for storing all the extra dishes and glassware for entertaining. And this spot is usually one that will get a fresh wreath accent or something simple like a sprig of pine. But a holiday swag is absolutely perfect here, I think. It is simple and charming and adds the right touch of greenery without overwhelming.

On the Stairs

With garlands and fresh greens in abundance on the stair railing, a swag makes the perfect accent the end of the banister. It adds a bit more Christmas oomph to catch the eye as you make your way upstairs. I simply tied this one to the top of the newel and let it hang down in front of the post for a dose of simple charm.

On an interior door

Who says that only entry or exterior doors deserve a sprinkle of Christmas charm? I love to feel Christmas all through the house. Place a swag on a bedroom or office door, or even an antique architectural piece such as this door I used to add a bit of interest in a room. A simple door or a detailed antique door is perfect for adding a wreath or greenery, too.

In the kitchen

If you have a blank wall in the kitchen, why not add a bit of Christmas to it for the season? We have a large blank wall next to our range where I usually stack antique breadboards. But for the holidays, I like to add a bit of Christmas cheer with a wreath or bunch of greenery.

This swag brought a perfect festive touch to the corner.

Anytime you are adding seasonal cheer throughout your home, just remember that if you like it then it is perfect. And a charming swag has so many options for sprinkling a bit of holiday goodness in any room.
