An easy Boxwood wreath, with BIG impact

IMG_5885

I get sooo many compliments on this wreath, and it was sooo easy to make.  I like that it is generic enough, yet elegant at the same time, and it can take me through a couple of seasons at least.  First, I bought the largest grapevine wreath form that would fit on my door at Hobby Lobby.  I don't like puny wreaths on my doors!  Then I bought a few bunches of the greenery from this post at Hobby Lobby as well.  (of course I buy it with a coupon, or better yet, wait until it goes on sale.  By the way, have you noticed the Hobby Lobby ad on my site?  Or is it only on my page?  Just curious.)

Then I cut off little sprigs and bunches on the greenery and hot glue them all around the grapevine wreath.  Just glue the bottoms of the bunches down, and allow them to stick out towards you at all different angles.  Keep filling in until the whole wreath is covered.  I think I used 5-7 bunches of greenery.  I would recommend buying a lot, saving your receipt, and returning what you don't use.  There is nothing more frustrating than to be in the middle of a project and to run out of supplies!

And there you have it... a gorgeous wreath that looks like a million bucks!

  1. I love it, Robyn! I love the size and even that it's all greenery. I guess if you wanted to change it up or add to it at the holidays, you could and then revert back to the basic wreath.
