I started with an unfinished wood frame, found in a box of cast-offs I bought at an online auction.  I stained it first for a rich base color.

Then I added a light coat of white paint on top.  I find it easier to lightly brush on the paint for a distressed look, than to cover completely and sand back.  #iamthelaziestdiyeryouwillevermeet

I clipped a few sprigs of boxwood from our front yard, arranged them and glued them down with hot glue.

A few faux berries cover the awkward spot where the stems come together.

I think I’ll make a pair to hang on the double door entry to our home office.  After the holidays, I can pull off the dried boxwood and use the frames for something else.
