Hi Amanda, thanks for much for inviting me to guest post on Scoutie Girl, what an honor! Thanksgiving has come and gone, and we are officially in the holiday season. I thought I would share my DIY boxwood mini wreaths with you. These are so easy to make and require few materials. Dress up your doorknobs, hang in your office, or give to a friend. Cheers!

DIY Boxwood Mini Wreath

Materials:

  • boxwood clippings
  • green florist wire
  • red ribbon
  • red and white baker’s twine

Tools:

  • clippers
  • wire cutters

Instructions:

  1. Using your clippers, cut fresh boxwood clippings.
  2. Try to get a long strand, or you can attach two boxwood pieces together with the florist wire.
  3. Tie both branch ends together with the florist wire, making a circle.
  4. Take your red ribbon and tie one knot on the wreath, and tie another knot around 6″ apart.
  5. This second knot will allow you to hang your wreath on a hook or door knob.
  6. To make a festive garland, make several wreaths and tie them to red and white baker’s twine.
  7. Hang!
