If you follow me on Instagram, you saw the gorgeous boxwood wreath I picked up from Trader Joes for only $9.99! Today I’m showing you how I used my larger wreath to create a matching mini one! That means two pretty wreaths for the price of one! This is a super easy tutorial and should take you no more than 5 minutes to complete. Just follow the steps below to create your own DIY boxwood wreath!

SUPPLIES:

Clippings from a real boxwood wreath

Green wire

Decorative embelishments (optional)

STEP 1:

Start by picking pieces from of your larger boxwood wreath. I recommend taking sprigs from the backside of the wreath, in areas that appear thicker. For a small wreath like the one I made, you will only need 4-5 sprigs.

STEP 2:

Start creating your mini wreath by connecting the pieces together. Simply attach each clipping end-to-end by fastening them with green wire. Wrap your wire as close to the branch as possible, leaving some leaves loose to conceal it. Continue attaching each piece until you’ve completed a full circle. Your wreath will look a little wild at first, just tie down any loose ends with wire to create a cleaner circle.

STEP 3:

Add embellishments! These wreaths look cute on their own, but feel free to add accents if you wish. I added a few faux berries to mine.

STEP 4:

Use twine to hang your wreath on a wall or window!

I pulled additional trimmings from this wreath to use for decorating other areas of my house. I’ll be sharing all my Christmas décor with you soon, so stay tuned!
