Spring {centerpiece} craft

Today I am sharing how I made our Spring centerpiece out of boxwood and forsythia that I recently shared on our  Spring mantel reveal.This is a craft that is quick and easy and is sure to add a pop of color to any tabletop.

All you need is a wire wreath (about $3 at Michael’s Crafts)

Faux boxwood garland (or whatever you want your base to be).

Wrap the garland around the wire and attach with crafting wire. I purchased Forsythia at Michael’s also and just cut off the flowers from the stem and placed on top of the boxwood. If you are going to hang this, you will need to attach your flowers with wire.

I placed it on a mirror that I already had to add a bit more character and texture to the tabletop. I love the look of raised wreath centerpieces. That’s it! In under 5 minutes, you can have a Spring centerpiece for any mantel or tabletop.

Today I’m sharing our newly created Spring mantel featuring a boxwood and forsythia display. I love how the yellow and green pair together but especially love how inexpensive this entire mantel was! Cheap! ha

This entire project cost under $10. I bought the faux boxwood and forsythia and luckily, I had a great coupon for Michael’s.

I wrapped the faux boxwood around a wire wreath and then just cut pieces of faux forsythia and placed them inside the boxwood. The wreath is sitting on top of a round mirror Smile.

I covered some canvas wall art that had dump trucks on it with fabric that I had left over from another project. I layered old photo frames on top to give a fun look. The lights are from Homegoods that my mom bought me last summer.

Can you believe there are dump trucks under the fabric ? I am so glad I never tossed them!

Using boxwood and forsythia are two spring elements that look great together and give that wonderful feel of spring. Spring mantels don’t have to be on a fireplace. Our fireplace is in need of some serious design attention so creating a mantel or vignette on any flat surface is also a great way to decorate for the season. Happy Spring!
