Boxwood Wreath Diy - Michaels dupe

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.

The best part about this boxwood wreath diy was I only needed a few supplies! 

Here is everything I used to make this wreath:

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! 

 The green wire blends in nicely.

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!

 This is what it looked like after the first garland was attached.

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.
