I am just full of DIY-ness these days, arent I? ;) Just kidding. It's spring, it makes me re-arrange everything. My husband is going insane.
I had been on the hunt for a boxwood wreath like this one for weeks.
But seriously... $55 to $85 for a wreath? I dont think so.
So I figured there had to be a DIY route! And off to Tai Pan I went!
sorry again for the photo quality, this was another 9pm project! :)
I started by buying 2 boxwood garlands for $12 a piece. I wanted a pretty thick wreath, but I bet I could of gotten away with 1.
A grapevine wreath (I had an extra, but you can buy these at walmart. You could also use a straw/styrafoam one)
and zip ties (you could also use bread ties, or hot glue)
Starting at one end of the garland, tuck the end up into the wreath with the springs pointing the way you will be wrapping.
start winding the garland with the wreath and secure to the vines with the zipties about every quater turn.
Make sure your ties are around both the garland and the grapvine.
Keep winding, winding winding, slowly moving outward with each time around.
when you finish the entire wreath, secure with one last ziptie and clip the ends off the zipties.
And hang! It's as simple as that! It really took me like 15 minutes for the entire thing! And I am in LOVE with how it looks! Perfect for upcoming spring!
And I spent a total of $24! A LOT less than $55+shipping!
