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.
