Evergreen Sprays on our Kitchen Pendants and Different Ideas for Them

I started decorating for Christmas mid-October because of the magazine shoot that is no longer happening.  I’m not sure if you knew that or not, but I announced it over on social media a few weeks back.  This post should explain why I cancelled it. I didn’t think adding any more unnecessary stress to my life would do me any good.  Yesterday, I decided that I have drug this Christmas decorating on long enough.  Ha!  After all, Christmas is less than three weeks away.  So I decided to do a few last minute things and call it done.  I added some evergreen sprays on our kitchen pendants and wanted to tell you how I did it.  And, give you some more ideas on how to use them.

Evergreen Sprays on our Kitchen Pendants

I am going to be honest.  I brought all of our evergreens downstairs from our Christmas decor room in October and it has been shoved in our entryway closet ever since.  I open the door, grab a few items, and close the door so I don’t have to look at it.  Well that is all put away now.  And, it feels magnificent.  Like I said, I added a few more touches around the house yesterday to call it done…. but we all know it’s probably not done. 

These evergreen sprays are so simple to make.  I grabbed the evergreen stems a few weeks back because I wanted to add them to some vases for different areas of our home.  I also thought I would fill the massive cabinet in our dining room with them, as well.  But I went a different route with my Christmas decor there. Which I will share that look soon.
Oh my gosh, I keep getting off track. Ha!

How to make these evergreen sprays:

  • I used 2 for each my kitchen pendants, but obviously you could make yours as big as you want.  I trimmed a lot of the long stems off leaving about 4-5″ left on each one.
  • Place those stem pieces together and wrap one little branch around the other one and do the same on the other side.  This is simply to hold it all in place while you do the next step.  See pic below.
  • Use floral tape to secure the two pieces together, which gives you this little evergreen swag.  
  • I attached mine on my lights with a smaller piece of satin ribbon tied in a know.  But, you could wrap the entire stem with ribbon and tie them in a bow leaving longer end pieces.  That would look really pretty.  I wanted mine simple.

Different Ideas for these Evergreen Swags

I made swags years ago with my friends out of dried flowers and weeds. So, this brought back some memories.  There are so many different ways you can use these and thought I would share how I have used them in the past.

  • Hang them over a mirror in your entryway to give a simple holiday look
  • Attach them to the front of an antique cabinet door
  • Add them to the back of your bar stools
  • Lay them on your coffee table grouping
  • Hang them over a picture or even your frame television
  • They look gorgeous hanging over a door way from the top of your trim
  • Make a larger one and use that rather than a wreath for your front door
  • Use them as a centerpiece for your holiday table
  • Attach one to the front of your fireplace mantel
  • Add one to your headboard
  • Hang a large one above your bathroom mirror to add a holiday touch

These evergreen sprays on our kitchen pendants added so much elegance and I love how they turned out.  Let me know if you make them.  Thank you so much for stopping by our website.  I appreciate it so much.  Don’t forget to check us out on Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook, too.
