Good evening friends! If you love to add fresh greens to your home for the holidays, but don’t have time to clip and wire bucketfuls of boxwood to a wire wreath frame, this DIY boxwood wreath project is for you.
DIY Boxwood Wreath
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.
