Most of us have one lurking in our basement, an old artificial Christmas tree that’s gathering dust. Well, I want to show you how to repurpose your artificial Christmas tree into a beautiful Christmas swag. It’s so easy to upcycle old Christmas trees into a beautiful piece of Christmas decor for the holidays.
The easiest way to create a swag from your tree is to use the top portion since this is already in tact.
You can add picks to your swag either by wrapping the picks with one of the branches or by using wire.
I repurposed a wreath picture frame as a hoop to be able to hang the swag on my door.
To add some “snow” to my swag I used some white acrylic paint to give it a more “snowy” look.
To create my second swag I used the bottom half of the tree. This took a little longer but ended up being just as beautiful.
