Create a traditional look for your home with this door swag of greenery and fruit. This style can be fashioned from real or artificial branches and fruits, though the artificial variety will last longer and is easier to make.
Choose a variety of fruits and vegetables to create a “fruitful” wreath like the one shown here. Pick different colors, textures, shapes, and sizes. Use floral wire to attach the fruit to a wreath base or a swag made of simple seasonal greens. Pineapples and oranges have a long tradition as holiday gifts, as their exotic origins signified abundance (and their vitamin C content contributed to good health).
Because fresh produce can be heavy, don’t overload your wreath. And be sure to use a sturdy nail or hook to support the finished project.
