Hannah’s Nature Inspired Holiday Swags

Each of our five porch posts now bears one of these pretty balsam fir swags Hannah created. Hand-crafted, she decorated them with things she found in our woods – pine cones, white pine branches, and ribbons of birch bark finished off with a raffia bow.

I’m starting to get in the spirit of the season!

  1. Wonderful swag, something I have done too.
    I steal them off my neighbor’s pine trees, lol.
    They are growing over into my yard and over my garden, so I trim a few branches on my side;)
