I’m a huge fan of mini wreaths. My favorite types are quick and easy and practically free! And this one totally qualifies. I shared this type of wreath a couple years ago on Instagram, but in case you missed it, I thought I’d share it here! They’re perfect for hanging on the back of a chair, on a door, in a window, or so many other ways!
All you really need are some pretty boxwood sprigs (or similar greenery that you can access), a little floral wire, and some small pruning shears.
Depending on the size of the wreath you want, you need around 10 to 12 stems, approximately 8 to 12 inches in length. All you have to do is start wiring the stems together, letting them overlap each other about halfway up each stem. Keep them all going in the same direction, working in a circular direction, covering the bottom of the stems as you go.
Once you have enough to complete the circle, join the ends and begin to add more wire if needed to “tighten up” the wreath and pull in pieces that are sticking out too much.
Check for thin areas and trim or add pieces if needed.
And that’s all there is to it! You can keep it plain, add additional flowers or picks, or hang with a ribbon!
Since this is just fresh boxwood without preservation, it should last up to two weeks. Misting with water will help it stay fresh looking as well. These are so cute for parties, holidays, gifting to friends, or just hanging in your home! Hope you like them! As always, I’d love to see your version!
