How to make a wreath using boxwood

I found my Christmas decorations from last year and chose pinecone garland, faux red berries and red Christmas ribbon to embellish my boxwood wreath.how to make a wreath using boxwood christmas wreath

Next, I simply cut the faux berries from the branch and hot glued them to the wreath. SO easy!

I snipped the pinecones from the garland and glued them around the wreath as well. You can buy small pinecones at your local craft store, I just wanted to use what I had so I used an existing piece of garland. In this photo below, I chose to hang the wreath with a wider ribbon but decided I wanted to add ribbon to the four corners instead.

I used thin red velvet ribbon to frame each of the four corners of the wreath. I cut the ribbon to size and glued the ends together.

I will be pinning our boxwood  wreath to our Holiday Idea Exchange pinterest board to kick off the party and hope you will follow along throughout the holiday season. The red and green really pop against our dark stained door. How to make a wreath using boxwood is an easy craft that took me about 15 minutes. The hardest part was digging out my Christmas decorations and deciding what to decorate the wreath with. I have never had a living boxwood wreath and I must say, this one is beautiful and adds beautiful holiday charm to our front door. Thank you Wayfair for sending me such a beauty!

Disclosure: I did receive a complimentary boxwood wreath from Wayfair. All opinions and words are 100% my own. The wreath is truly fabulous!

  1. Love the wreath rock star! So much fun partying with you!

    Happy day to you!

  2. How cute! This wreath is really unique, I love the shape too!

  3. It’s lovely – I haven’t seen a square shaped wreath down my part of the world – it suits the shapes on your front door very nicely. Well done 🙂

  4. Jessica, it’s lovely! Did you purchase or make the boxwood wreath itself (prior to decorating)? I live in a part of the country where boxwood is not common, so I’m just wondering. . . .


  5. Sooooo, how do you make the wreath? You only showed how to decorate one. I have a bunch of boxwood bushes that will need trimming and would love to make wreaths out of them. Do you have the instructions on how to make the actual wreath?

  6. Don’t know if I keep reading over it, but what did you use for the wreath form/square? Thanks!
