How to Make a Boxwood Wreath

3 Materials
30 Minutes

We recently painted our front door a lovely light green. However, it was feeling a little naked... and seriously needed a wreath. In this tutorial, you will learn how to make a boxwood wreath. A natural boxwood wreath is beautiful and simple, easily made with fresh clippings.

Step 1: Collect boxwood clippings.

We've got two boxwood plants on our porch -- one plant has done wonderfully and the other struggles. I decided to grab my clippings from the sad plant, in hopes that a little pruning might help it perk up. So -- if you have boxwood care tips, feel free to share in the comments!

Step 2: Choose a wreath form. I didn't have a wreath form on hand but did have some old embroidery hoops. Since I was going for a smaller wreath, an embroidery hoop made perfect sense. Of course, any wreath form will do just fine!

Step 3: Attach clippings to the outside of the wreath form with floral wire. Overlap each end with the next clipping.

Step 4: Attach clippings to the inside of the wreath form, working to hide the floral wire by continuing to overlap.

Isn't it darling? Pretty and petite, a simple but beautiful addition to our front door. Have you ever made a wreath from natural materials? If so, what kind? I'd love to hear!
