Spring is here! Spring is here!
It has been really beautiful here in Colorado these last few weeks. Unseasonably warm, high 60's and even some days with 70 degree weather!
Unfortunately, I know it won't last. April is our snowiest month but I've got my fingers crossed!
This week I made a boxwood wreath. Let me start with saying if you try this make sure you look for the faux on sale. I mean really otherwise you are looking to spend $18.00 - $20.00 PER BUSH!
The wreaths are cheap - they start at $2.00.
You can do this, I know you can.
Okay lets start.
You will need some faux bushes. I wanted to make two wreathes so I bought two long dark bushes; one light long bush and one short variegated bush.
I also bought 2 twig wreathes. You can us any kind but twig is the best.
You will need wire snips or really sturdy scissors and florist wire.
Start by deciding which color will be your base. I chose the dark. Next, using the wire snips, cut a length of the faux boxwood. Also cut a very small length of florist wire. Stick the cut end of the boxwood into the twig wreath and secure it tightly with the florist wire.
Keep going around the wreath with your base. Next choose your accent color and lay that overtop the base, using the florist wire to secure each piece.
I then took a piece of twine and made a loop on the back and hung it over the mirror in my foyer.
It was really easy and I only stuck myself once with the wire.
Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate it!
Until next week, Stay Safe!
