A Christmas swag is an easier version of a Christmas wreath. It is, in a nut shell, a bundle of mixed evergreen and / or berry branches tied up in a festive way as Christmas decorations.
A Christmas swag can be used in a lot of ways. For example, you can use it on a door or a wall just like how you would use a Christmas wreath. You can also use it to decorate a wall sconce, a mailbox, dinning chairs, or stair railings!
