7 DIY Holiday Wreaths
Wreaths of green
A grouping of three to five boxwood wreaths adds up to one stylish statement on a wall that needs Christmas cheer. We added olive green accents, such as velvet ribbon and a hanging ornament, for simple tone-on-tone looks.
Find boxwood wreaths at local garden centers or tree farms. Or to make your own, start with a wire wreath frame. Secure florist's wire to one end of the frame. Bunch four to six boxwood sprigs, wrapping stems with the wire and securing to the frame. Repeat, overlapping branches so stems are hidden underneath foliage. Make three sizes for a casual, asymmetrical holiday display.
