Create a traditional swag on the mantel with surprisingly nontraditional materials. Thin tree branches and birch bark shavings make up this rustic swag in the living room. Red berries and frosted Christmas trees in varying heights lend holiday touches to the natural arrangement, which could be used throughout the fall and winter seasons.
