DIY Boxwood Wreath

So many of you liked my boxwood wreaths

I thought I would show you

a little something else.

I found these at Hobby Lobby

1/2 off

Cut them into sprigs.

I then shoved them into

 grapevine wreaths.

No glue.

No wire.

No tape.

I just jammed them under the vines.

They have stayed pretty snug too.

This is a shot of the back of the wreath.

I looped a silk ribbon around each wreath.

I then hung them from wreath hangers.

I believe I bought the wreath hangers from a store  in Baton Rouge.

The Royal Standard.

Oh my word!

Did you see that?

Look to the left of the door.

In the grass.

A snake shed it's skin.



I'm going back inside now.

  1. How rude!! and right in the middle of your tutorial!

  2. Love the wreaths, thanks for showing us how to do them.
    Snake skin, not so much.

  3. Girl, I totally made these exact same things with smaller round forms! I did mine to copy Ballard designs about a year ago... the move all over my home! LOL Thanks for sharing. I want to try square ones too... very Martha Stewarty. :)

    (Oh, and we have tons of grass snakes. Ech!)

  4. I LOVE this... so simple but totally creative and classy at the same time. Thx for sharing!

  21. I would have run back inside, too! EEEEEK!

    Beautiful wreaths, though! I'll have to check and see if they have any at the HL I go to. Those would be pretty at Christmas, too!

  22. Thanks for sharing! I will be looking for these next visit to Hobby Lobby.

  26. Great, I'm going to have the heebie jeebies all day now! ;)

    The thought of a snake that close to the front door? Uh, not such a happy thought. I'd have gone back inside too!

  28. What a great little project that makes a big impact! Thank you for sharing. *Ü*

    Personally, I don't mind snakes. I know...y'all think I'm cuckoo, right?

    Don't want them in my house, but outside, they're not the worst neighbors!

  29. Hey I think I might try that - a boxwood wreath...not the snakeskin. But such is life in Louisiana. On we go.

  30. Oh my goodness! I could SO do without snakes! I send each one I can get my shovel on top of to its death...we've already had two copperheads here in the yard, plus some garden snakes.

    Your wreaths are amazing...simple...elegant...and absolutely beautiful!

  31. Lovely, but snakeskins mean snakes! Yuk! Watch your toes! Jackie

  32. You are so stinkin creative...I love how you find a way to make things without it being all complicated!


  33. I think I can do that with the stuff I already have!! Thanks for sharing your inspiration.

  34. I love your front doors!

  35. EEEEEK regarding that blasted snake. And if it has shed it's's because it's gotten BIGGER.
    Loved the wreaths....and I was at Royal Standard on Saturday with Ariel and didn't even notice those cool Fluer hangers. I need some. Two to be exact.
    Thanks for the info!

  36. Goodness....just realized I spelled "Fleur" incorrectly...and I live in Louisiana! Shameful.

  37. I'm soooo going to make these! Saw some at a friends daughters wedding this past weekend and luv the look...well since they have really been on my "to do list" for a really loooong time...I guess I better get right on them!


  38. Oh I adore your boxwood. I abore your snake skin. I recently had one too.

    Between the snakes and the roaches I'm happy to stay indoors.

  41. eewww... Not a fan of snakes. Lovely front door however!


  42. Love the wreaths! Would you mind telling me where you got square wreaths? I REALLY wanted to make a square Christmas ball wreath and couldn't find a form anywhere so I made one out of PVC but the grapevine is much prettier!

  43. I would also LOVE to know where you got the square grapevine wreath from!!! These are SO beautiful!!! Thanks for sharing!!

Herve Leger sale They weave the base and then hand-apply everything else. And our fit is really key. Oktoberfest Dress These pieces are more like sweaters than anything else—they’re not cut-and-sew, Herve Leger Dresses they’re knits—and that’s why they fit so well. People are so surprised at how well Herve Leger fits, and I tell them it’s all about how the dresses are constructed.”And finally, we dress for what we love too. For what we just can’t resist.
