It’s the time of year where all the holiday decor comes down and the ground is still covered in snow. I know spring cleaning is a big thing (and I make every attempt to participate in the movement) but I find the best time for me to get stuff done is during the winter right after Christmas but before spring hits. Like right now we are going through a spell of -30 degree wind chills… so obviously I’m not outside building any furniture… I’m inside cuddled up in my hoodie trying to keep my feet warm! I like to take this time of year to give myself something to do while I wait patiently for the snow to melt. What better way to put you in the mood than some non holiday decor and in particularly this DIY Boxwood Wreath Tutorial!
I painted my walls a beautiful greige recently and I’m excited to share some of the details I’ve changed since my summer living room last year. Paint makes such a difference doesn’t it? Well, I was never technically done with this room. Will I ever be DONE? Probably not… but I hope to be done in a sense that I can feel like it’s good until I change my mind and can move on to a few other rooms in the house! I’m so close and one of my main issues is the wall my TV is on. It’s a large blank wall and there are big gaps on either side of the TV… it’s just weird and there needed to be something over the TV.. so I hung an old window and this boxwood wreath found it’s new home!
This is easy to make and I love how versatile it is! I’m sure this will be around during all those holidays too. Let’s make one!
– Grapevine wreath
– 1 strand of Boxwood Garland (I got mine at Michaels)
– Wire cutters
– Floral wire
DIY Boxwood Wreath Tutorial
So all I did was use my wire cutters to snip off sprigs of the boxwood and stick it right into the grapevine wreath. I didn’t glue it or anything, for the most part it stuck itself right in there. If necessary you can use some floral wire to secure some pieces. Just make sure you keep your boxwood pointed in the same direction as you make your way around (for that spiral type effect).
The to hang it on the window I just attached some floral wire to the wreath and wrapped the other end around a nail at the top of the frame. You could also use ribbon or just a hook, that’s up to you!
Now you can sit back and enjoy this beautiful wreath and dream of spring and summer ; ) Don’t get me wrong, I love the cold and snow, but the whole -30 degrees…well it leaves me longing for warmer temperatures!
Have a beautiful day!
