Fall door swag is perfect to bring length and fullness to your front door. Wreaths are our usual decorative item for any holiday, big occasions, or for seasonal adornment. Why not try something different this fall instead of the usual fall wreath? A swag could definitely be a better alternative!
Nature blesses us with plenty of produce and flowers this season, which can be used for crafting many door decorations, especially some cute-looking swags.

An average door swag made with wonderful autumn flowers is a fitting decorative item for fall or any other occasions. Check out the tutorial to make a door swag with fall flowers and greenery.
Fall Door Swag Supplies:
A wire clothes hanger
Flowers of choice (fresh or artificial)
Ornaments of choice or seasonal embellishments
Gold striped ribbon, red ribbon, orange ribbon
Fall Door Swag Directions:
- Bring together the both sides of the wire hanger to create an oblong shape for hanging the flowers and decorative pieces.
- Take the longer pieces of greenery and use it to cover the hanger base. Secure it by wrapping floral wire around it. Now, take the pieces of greenery one by one and attach them to the wire base with floral wire. It will create a layered look, add texture, and above all, ensure the structural integrity to your swag.
- Now, it’s time to add the flowers. Add layers of flowers with bigger ones first and smaller ones on them. You can secure them with floral wire or hot glue.
- Glue or wire the ornaments or seasonal embellishments in a way they look nice.
- Make a bow with the red and gold striped ribbon and attach it to the upper part of the base. Leave long tails of the bow to make a loop with them.
- Now, hang the swag on your door to give your guests a warm welcome and add more curb appeal to your home.
