Okay, so I have an obsession with green wreaths right now, especially boxwood ones! My Front door has a very large one...
And as if that is not enough, I needed one on the window to match...
And for some reason, I still wasn't satisfied, so I had to go and add another in my house (which is completely visible when you walk in from my wreath infested porch).
Here is how to make one...
...Thanks to Rebekah at All Thingz Related for the idea! Go HERE to see hers (She used hers on double pantry doors - so freakin' cute!)
I bought a boxwood "bush" at Hobby Lobby for $4, and a grapevine wreath for $1.25.
I also used hot glue, but that is optional. (I just have a one year old who attacks all my decor to test its durability, so I glued mine)
1. Cut apart the "bush" with wire cutters, then cut each stem in half so they aren't so long.
2. Add a dab of hot glue to the end of the stem- no brainer - I know!
3. Insert glued end into grapevine wreath. Continue all around, evenly filling in all gaps.
4. Be more careful than I was - I ended up with 2 nasty burns!!! Why is it I can use power tools and not hurt myself, but the second I pick up a glue gun I get injured? (knock on wood)
Tada!!! I LOVE my new $5.25 wreath! I'm not too sold on the rest of the decor, but the wreath is there to stay! Yes I know there are nails sticking out of my finial - I stole it off the fence of my old house before I moved for a keepsake! :) And I wasn't strong enough to pull the nails out, and too impatient to wait for my husband to do it before I took the picture.
Thanks again to Rebekah for the inspiration!
Confession - I want to make two more slightly different boxwood wreaths for my laundry room makeover- am I going overboard???
