Hi, can someone give me instructions for making foam swag so I can insert my flowers to make wreaths. I cant find any foam swag in my local stores. thanks

RE: homemade foam swag

Is it a swag or a wreath? If you are looking for styrofoam swag chances are you will either have to cut it out from a larger piece (could get$$$) or use a 22 gage wire to connect pieces together. You can cut styrofoam easily. But you have to be sure to hide all the white! Don't spray paint it at all--the paint just 'eats' the foam. I hate them but hot glueing to grapevine wreaths or swags does work well--and if you find the vines for free--better yet! Good Luck! Tootles
