DIY Boxwood Wreath

I love spontaneous projects. 
I've been wanting to hang some simple boxwood wreaths 
in the windows in the dining room, but the price tag was a bit steep for me. 
Today as I drove up the driveway, I suddenly saw that I have a wealth of boxwood 
all around my yard just waiting to be harvested.  I unbuckled baby boy, 
postponed big brother's math lesson, and went to work.

First I clipped a bunch of boxwood and washed it.

Then I shaped a metal hanger into a circle.

Next, I gathered the twigs into little bundles and tied them with fishing line.

In order to get a sense of how much I needed, I arranged the bundles around the wire circle.

Then I attached the bundles to the hanger with floral tape.

Add a bit of ribbon, and ta da!

I love creating new things from stuff I already have!


  1. My Kind of Project. Another free project. Trader Joes has preprinted garland strips on the sides of their grocery bags and gift tags too.

  2. Wow! You are a Christmas crafting genius! So glad I found your project via Centsational Girl.

    Please stop by for a visit to my blog. I am currently in the midst of a Gifts to Make series.

    Be Merry and Bright!
