I'd been searching boxwood decor on Pinterest lately and pinned a couple DIY boxwood wreaths onto my Crafts board the other day, but decided I needed to come up with an even more frugal wreath idea based mostly on what I had on hand. Which involved a few sprigs of faux boxwood, a couple faux white hydrangeas, a grapevine wreath with a "B" I'd attached to it previously with twine, burlap flowers and zip ties. I grabbed a simple garland of green ivy from Hobby Lobby for $5 and went to work!
I simply used the zip ties to strategically attach the ivy garland around my wreath, cutting the ties when I was finished so they were hidden amongst the greenery. I bunched the garland up in places to give it a fuller effect.
Next I tucked the ends of my boxwood into the wreath and zip tied a couple of the sprigs to keep them in place, then stuck in my hydrangeas and a few pearl-colored picks I'd found in my craft closet.
Ta-dah! Easy peasy with a fresh look for spring to welcome me at my door. :)
