DIY Boxwood Wreath

Good Morning!
Hope you all had a restful and enjoyable weekend. The family and I went to the cabin in the woods with Grandma and Grandpa and we had a wonderful time.  It's so nice that the weather is warming up so that we we can get out into the fresh air and enjoy it.  Even got a little tan so I'm not so chicken white anymore - thank goodness!

Today I'd like to share a recent craft project.  I have wanted a boxwood wreath for a long time and have been on the look out for one with not much luck, they just don't seem to be very popular around here.  I did however finally spot a boxwood garland at Micheal's and decided to make my own.

One eight inch foam wreath form, a glue gun, a toothpick and one and half six foot boxwood garland was all I needed.


After trimming the boxwood sprigs down to size, I poked a hole in the wreath form with a toothpick.  Next I put a little hot glue on the boxwood stem and pushed it into the hole made by the toothpick.


Super easy, but time consuming. 


But I love the results.

I think it's the perfect spring time accent to the hutch and I love the pop of green among all the white.

That's it for me today, it looks like it's going to be a beautiful day and I'm planning on playing in the garden as much as possible.

Enjoy your day,

Robin

  5. Beautiful, Robin! I've been wanting a real boxwood wreath, but that garland looks so realistic I may just have to go for the faux version. At least it'll last forever. :) Happy Spring, friend!
