Mini Boxwood Wreath Tutorial

Hello Pretty Providence readers!! This is Shonee from Hawthorne and Main and I am super excited to be here again today!! I love love love to decorate with green.  I feel like it’s an easy way to bring color into any space! Today I am going to share with you how easy these mini boxwood wreaths are to make!

Here are the supplies you will need: 
1- box wood wreath
1- mini mdf wreath (found mine at michaels)
1- hot glue gun
ribbon or lace
Start by breaking the leaves off the boxwood wreath.  They should already be in small pieces.  As you start to break them off you will be able to tell how big they are.
 Last year I picked up a heart shaped wreath after valentines day.  It was on sale!!!  I really didn’t like the heart shaped look, but I knew that I would be able to use the leaves for a different project.
Boxwood wreaths can get pricy, if you cannot find one on sale.   Purchasing one wreath and then breaking it down into a few smaller wreaths is a great way to spread out the green without spending a ton of money!!
After you have the boxwood leaves broken up it is time to assemble the new wreath.  Start by gluing the small pieces around the mdf frame. Don’t be afraid to use a little extra glue.  You really want to make sure the leaves are suck down good!!  Continue around the circle until all the entire frame is covered.
Grab a piece of vintage lace or some ribbon and hang it up!!

This little wreath would look awesome on a mantel! I love the contrast between the old barn wood and the green boxwood leaves!!

It would also look great as an accent on a piece of furniture!!  Love that pop of green! To attach the wreath to the tv console table I used a small tack on the inside of the drawer.  Easy and not permanent!

 

 

 

Lastly, I have even see them hung from kitchen cabinets! So pretty!!  Perfect for spring and summer!!
I guess the point is that these little boxwood wreaths are so versatile and I love the little pop of green!! Get creative with them!!
