Decorative Christmas Swags and Hanging Baskets
Give guests a warm welcome with Balsam Hill’s Christmas teardrop swags. Made from the same foliage as our artificial Christmas trees, our selection of swags adds charm and cheer to your indoor and outdoor spaces.
This type of holiday greenery is named after its unusual teardrop shape. Much like a Christmas wreath, it’s usually displayed on entryways. Use this versatile decoration throughout your home to brighten up small rooms or your front porch.
How do you decorate teardrop swags?
Style decorative Christmas swags the way you would wreaths and garlands. Here are some ideas:
Create a bow out of silk ribbon and attach it to the top of your swag. It’s an easy way to elevate the look of your holiday greenery.
Decorate your Christmas teardrop swags to match the ornaments on your artificial tree. This extends your holiday theme throughout your home.
- Nature-inspired embellishments
You can’t go wrong with using artificial flowers, pinecones, and berries as accents. These are especially suitable for a winter cabin or rustic farmhouse theme.
Where do you hang Christmas swags?
They’re often used as decorations for doors and mailboxes, but look beautiful in other areas of your home, too. Here are tips on where to hang them:
- Interior doors
Hang a teardrop swag on a bedroom or home office door to give it a sprinkle of holiday charm. They’re unique options for Christmas wreaths and garlands.
Hang swags on the ends of a stair banister to serve complement garlands wound around railings. Let the holiday foliage act as a reminder to keep a festive mood at the start and end of your day.
Fill a blank kitchen wall with Christmas teardrop swags. Arrange baskets of fruit near the display to add refreshing pops of color to the room.
- Dining room
Use one as a centerpiece for your dining table, or on a vintage cupboard. Decorating the dining room with Christmas swags is a subtle way to add a festive ambience to your meals.
How do you hang outdoor Christmas window swags?
Let our Christmas outdoor swags brighten up your al fresco celebrations. Before decorating with these, remember to check for the outdoor-safe label to avoid damage to your artificial greenery.
Like Christmas wreaths, hang holiday swags on doors using a wreath hanger. It’s one way of doing so without damaging the surface. However, you can also use a ribbon to suspend it. Attach one end of the ribbon to the swag, then drape the other end over your door. Then, secure it to the top of the door with thumbtacks.
If you’re planning to hang a swag on your windowsill, use a clear self-adhesive hook and attach it to the pane. Before doing so, make sure that the size of your teardrop swag is proportional to your window.
Deck out your mailbox by draping it with a swag. Secure the foliage with floral wires or a nylon fishing line so that it stays in place throughout winter.
