I was browsing online a few months back, and I came across a beautiful boxwood wreath on the Michael's website. I fell in love with the look of it, but the $99 price tag was less than appealing. So, I made it my mission to create my own version.

To create this wreath I simply attached the entire garland onto the wire wreath form using the floral wire. There really isn't much more to explain!
I precut a bunch of pieces of the floral wire in about 2 inch lengths, and attached the garland to the wreath form every few inches or so. After poking my finger with the wire a couple of times I realized it was easier to use the pliers to twist the wire onto itself!
I continued the same process with the second garland, wrapping around the wreath form in the same direction as the first.
Here is a side by side of my diy boxwood wreath and the one from Michael's. I have to say I'm loving the un-manicured look of mine.
Theirs is on sale for $79 now, while mine cost under $15 to create. If you are going to try this boxwood wreath diy be sure to sue your coupons when shopping to keep costs low!
