DIY - Apple Chair Swag
Laurie shares all the info with us....have fun guys!!

What You'll Need:

8 - 10 small apples  (I used Granny Smiths)
Bailing wire
6 yards of ribbon or trim  (3 different styles) 
Wire Cutters
Scissors


Instructions:  

1.  Select 8 apples (or so) and line them with the smaller ones on the ends, and the larger in the middle. (see image A) 

2.  Cut a 3 foot length of bailing wire using your wire cutters.  Make a loop at one end, and twist the tail around to close and secure.  (see image B) 

3.  Take your first apple and run the wire through the upper half, centered on the stem.  Slide it down the wire until it meets the loop.  (see image C)


4.  One by one, carefully string the apples on the wire in the order in which you arranged them in step one. (see images D, E and F ) 

5. Make a loop with the remaining wire.  Twist to secure.  (see image G)   Trim away any extra wire.   

6.   Cut six lengths of ribbon, roughly one yard each.  Gather three ribbons and tie them to one end of your apple swag.  (see image H)  


7.  Gather the remaining three ribbons and attach them to the other end of the swag. 


8. Hang your swag across the back of your chair.  You can dress the Bride and Groom's chairs, all the chairs at the head table, or the entire room.

The swags can be made several days in advance if stored in a cool place.



Thanks Laurie for stopping by today....as always...another beautiful and fun DIY for us...we look forward to your next visit....xoxo
