The English word 'swag' comes from the Scandinavian svagga, meaning “to rock unsteadily or lurch." It is first recorded in Shakespeare's “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” in a line spoken by Puck, "What hempen home-spuns have we swaggering here, so near the cradle of the fairy queen?”
In addition to the fabric swag referred to by Puck, another current meaning of the word is a seasonal decoration of loosely gathered evergreens, embellished with other materials and often displayed on a front door.
Learn how to create your own Christmas swag in a workshop led by Nina Eadie. Nina is a Montana Master Gardener and past president of the Stevensville Garden Club. She is also Superintendent of the Floral Department in the Ravalli County Fair.
All materials will be provided. Participants should bring gloves, garden clippers, and needle-nose pliers. Protective eye wear is also recommended.
