Love a fresh boxwood wreath? Make your own in minutes (and for free!) with this easy step-by-step tutorial.
Hello, Shabby Chic Cottage readers! This is Linda, from burlap+blue, and I am thrilled to be guest posting here today! For those of you who don’t know me, I love to share tutorials, Etsy finds, and other home inspiration on my blog, and I also have an Etsy shop where I create vintage-inspired goods for the home.
And, today, I’m going to share with you how to make this…
Easy, inexpensive and perfect for Summer-what’s not to love about a boxwood wreath?
Supplies Needed: Wreath form Boxwood branches (real or faux) Ribbon or fabric for hanging Hot Glue
Step 1: Gather your supplies. I really wanted a square wreath, but couldn’t find a square form anywhere. I did find, however, large sheets of styrofoam in the floral section at Hobby Lobby, and cut one down to size (12″x12″).
I also used real boxwood branches, and my wreath lasted about a month. If you can find realistic-looking faux branches, go for it!
Step 2: Using copious amounts of hot glue (why do I feel like I use that phrase in every tutorial I write??), glue your branches to your wreath form.
Step 3: Hang and admire! The cool thing about this wreath is that you can easily personalize it by hanging an initial or seasonal object from it (I know how much Gina loves her starfish-wouldn’t that be adorable?)
I hung mine using a length of burlap, but I think jute webbing, or even a linen fabric, would be fun.
