Good Morning, Everyone! With the summer flying by so fast, I have a quick little summer project to share with you! You could really make this wreath for any season (I made a square-shaped Christmas one last year that you can check out HERE), but I thought the white lace ribbon added a cute summery touch here! All you need are a couple of supplies and you have a sweet little wreath to pretty up your door!
SUMMER BOXWOOD WREATH
YOU WILL NEED
Boxwood (real of faux)
Round wreath form
Lace Ribbon (mine was about 2.5 inches wide)
Or make your own wreath form out of thick wire (like from a clothes hanger!)
Floral wire (or Christmas ornament hooks!)
Scissors & wire cutter
Hot glue gun
1. First, gather all your supplies. You can either use a pre-made wreath form, or you can make one out of some thick wire (like from a wire clothes hanger). Just make your circle out of the wire and twist the ends to secure them, and add some hot glue around where you twisted the wire, just to make sure the wire doesn't move!
2. Next, start attaching your boxwood in little bunches. Either insert those bunches into your wreath form, or if you are using a wire one, secure them onto the form in bunches with some thin floral wire, or even some Christmas ornament hooks. Make sure you wrap the wire around tight enough so the boxwood bunches don't fall out (they may dry and shrink as the wreath hangs and you don't want them to fall out!) Keep going around the wreath form with the small bunches of boxwood until you have filled the entire thing!
2. Once you have filled the whole wreath, check to see that it looks nice and even. If there are pieces of boxwood that are sticking out of place, trim them, or if there are bare areas, add in a couple extra pieces of boxwood. Once you are happy with your wreath, attach your ribbon. Cut a piece of ribbon to use as the wreath hanger, then make your lace bow and attach it onto the front of the ribbon you used to hang the wreath, either with some hot glue, or with some wire.
And here's the Christmas Boxwood Square Wreath (with a tutorial) that I mentioned!
Happy Crafting, Everyone!
