How To Make A Boxwood Wreath….

284 Flares 284 Flares ×
Hello Everyone!!
I’m back today with another spring project for the Door Decor Spring Fling Party
going on at Rhoda’s today!
This was yet another project inspired from my Spring Mantel. I had made a small boxwood wreath for that project & I wanted a larger one for the door in my kitchen. I love the simplicity of boxwood wreaths & LOVE the touch of “spring” they can bring into a room just by adding pop of green!!

See what I mean?! 
Very Springy…..don’t ya think?! :)
I started off with just this plain, 12″ grapevine wreath that I got at JoAnn Fabric’s. I think it was $3.99.

Then, I just went out to my backyard & started trimming my boxwoods to get the greenery I would need for the wreath. Between the front yard & the back, we have six boxwood bushes, so there is plenty to go around! :)

Then, I brought the greenery inside & got ready to go to work!

I just started working the boxwood clippings into the grapevine wreath little by little.

I would also reinforce  the clippings with a bit of hot glue from time to time…

At first, I didn’t know what the hot glue would do to the boxwood clippings ( I thought that it might damage/kill them), but I did this same thing when making the smaller wreath for my mantel & a week later it is still looking green & pretty! 

You just continue to add the clippings all the way around the wreath until you are done. I tried to keep all the clippings going in the same direction to give it a more uniform look.

Once the grapevine wreath is covered in the boxwood clippings, you may have to give it a little haircut….I did mine!! I trimmed around the edges, just like I would if I were trimming a bush, making sure they were all even!

Once the wreath was complete, I cut out a piece of fabric to make a bow & hang it from my door. I like to just make a small cut in the fabric & then just rip it the rest of the way to give it a frayed look. You can do whatever you like! :) You could even skip using the fabric & opt for a ribbon instead.

Then I just hung it from my door!

This was such a simple & easy project! I think it literally took me a hour from start to finish! And I just love the way it looks hanging from my door! :)

    wow that turned out awesome! I think i could even do that. UMM one question i have tonya noticed that you posted this at 5:00 in the morning!!!!!! What the heck are you doin up sooo early.REALLY!!!

    Love you nancy

  16. Yes, that is really springy and fun, I’d love to have something similar if only I had access to some boxwood! That is such a classic wreath – how long do they last before they dry out?

  17. This is such a cute idea! I love reading your blog and all of your crafty ideas!

  18. SO pretty! Love the fresh and natural look. Hmmmm……maybe I should trim my boxwoods?!

  19. I LOVE Boxwoods – what a lovely wreath, and so much nicer than the pricey ones at Target. Curious too to know how long the green lasted? But even for a short season it seems worth it. : )

  20. Tonya, this is such a fantastic idea! I have 6 boxwoods out front that are due for a trimming soon. I pinned this so I can come back and use your tutorial!

  21. Your wreath is absolutely perfect! And nothing like some beautiful greens to say “welcome Spring!”

  22. I love this! Boxwood is now on my list of things I need to plant. Thanks for sharing!
