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.

ugh!

Ok..

I'm going back inside now.

  7. Lovely and Beautiful wreaths!

    As for the snake skin. They always freak me out a little. They had to be there to lose it. So when were they here and where are they now ....

  27. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  29. 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!

  34. EEEEEK regarding that blasted snake. And if it has shed it's skin...it'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!

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

  41. 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!
    Blessings!
