Easy No Cost Christmas Wreath

4.1K Views
I love the little boxwood wreaths you see everywhere. They are classic and look great and are perfect for Christmas. I could definitely use several around the house, but the problem is they are expensive. Since I didn't trim my Japanese holly shrubs a few months ago, there were shoots coming out of them and since they looked like boxwood, would make a good substitute.

    I'm all in favor of bringing the outdoors in when it comes to holiday decor, but I would caution that you don't want to cut a large amount of foliage from hollies (or other evergreens) at this time of year, as it can stimulate new growth, which could very easily be damaged by the cold.

    Very good point Douglas...especially with the oscillating winter temperatures we have been experiencing in the North country over the past 2 years

    Very good point Douglas. The wreaths are very small and I'm cutting about 10-15 shoots off large shrubs, so I'm taking very few off of each shrub. (I have about 30 of these shrubs on my property). I live in the South and our winters are pretty mild, but when I've cut my shrubs late, new growth only grows when it warms up. At least, that's what I've noticed on any shrubs I've cut later in the Fall.
