These are some swags I made for our porch where we keep our firewood. For each swag I took two branches from our old artificial Christmas tree. I laid them on top of each other, with one slightly higher. To hold them together I tore a piece of duct tape in half widthwise so it was narrow and then taped them together. I then hot glued on the pinecones which I got from my neighbor. For the bows I used an old jumper dress that I cut strips out of. I also painted the tips of the pinecones with a little bit of white paint after they were all assembled.
I think they're a little Martha Stewartish and even better because they were completely free to make:) My local thrift store sells the trees for $6. So maybe if you don't have a tree to work with you can pick one up for cheap.

You put Martha Stewart to shame. I don't think she would have ever bought a thrift store tree and used what she had on hand like you did.
You did a great job, keep up the good work.
I washed all the plastic leaves with soap and hung them to dry. I've fixed the broken Christmas balls. I got an old pot and put styrofoam inside. Then I arranged the leaves according to my style. With the help of glue stick, I fixed the Christmas balls on all the leaves.
Now these discarded materials have become useful and help decorated my home.
