I’m so thrilled to be sharing my Boxwood Wreath with you all today. I gave you all a sneak peek a while back but today I’m sharing how I made it. Since the front door & the wreath give the first impression to what’s to be found inside the home -I want the wreath to be classic, timeless & elegant. I have changed all our holiday decor to neutrals with touches of green & metallics & this goes perfectly with that. I love the accents of cream & white & it really sets the tone. Let me show you just how easy it was to make!
With a chocolate brown door with a silver kick plate I am very careful what colors I choose for my decorations. Not everything stands out as well as I would like & not all colors go well with it either. Fortunately the green & white popped quite nicely against it & it fits well with the indoor colors too.
Here is what I started out with. Foam wreath form, white cotton strips of fabric, boxwood garland, sprigs of white berries (I also had red in case I changed my mind), cream satin ribbon & lot’s a hot glue.
I started with wrapping the wreath form with the cotton fabric as hot glue & foam don’t really work all that well together. I needed to give the hot glue something to stick to.
Then I stared gluing the boxwood garland around the wreath form until it was completely covered.
I added the berry sprigs for highlights.
Then I created 2 large bows with the satin ribbon & glued them close together to look like one larger bow.
I like that it’s just simple & elegant.
Here it is! I’m so loving it on my door.

Very pretty !!! Thanks for sharing …
Beautiful wreath!! I love it!!
Where did you find the artificial boxwood??? I have been looking everywhere. I also have a brown door and it is very hard to get things that will make it pop. I just love the boxwood.

I picked it up at Michael’s years ago. I thought I saw some there the last time I was in that dept.
