Are you looking to add a touch of elegance and tranquility to your home? This DIY Lavender Swag tutorial is here to guide you through creating a beautiful, handmade addition to your home decor. Perfect for beginners and seasoned crafters alike, this project is not just a creative outlet, but a way to bring the timeless beauty of lavender into your everyday space.

Why Choose Lavender for Your Home?

  • Calming Properties: Dried lavender is known for its soothing aroma, which can bring a sense of calm and relaxation to any room.
  • Versatile Decor: A lavender swag can beautifully complement various decor styles, from rustic to modern.
  • Everlasting Charm: Using high-quality artificial lavender ensures that your swag remains vibrant and fresh-looking all year round.

Materials Needed:

  • High-quality artificial lavender stems or dried stems if you want a scented version
  • Artificial greenery
  • Zip ties, pipe cleaners or floral wire and tape
  • Decorative ribbon +/or twine
  • Scissors and wire cutters
  • Optional embellishments like bows or silk flowers

Creating Your Lavender Swag:

  1. Preparation: Gather all your materials. Quality is key for a long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing swag. If you need help finding quality materials, this blog post may be helpful.
  2. Forming the Base: Use zip ties or floral wire to create the foundation of your swag with greenery. I like to “sandwich” small bunches together rather than tying them as one large bunch. This will allow for better stability. This structure will support your lavender stems.
  3. Arranging Lavender: Attach lavender stems to your base, ensuring even distribution and fullness. Use additional fillers as desired.
  4. Adding Finishing Touches: Use ribbon or twine to cover mechanics. Make and add a bow if desired.
  5. Ready to Hang: Attach a decorative ribbon, floral wire, or twine for hanging your swag in the desired location. I like to add a hanger to the back on both sides for stabilization while hanging.
