I am on a wreath-making frenzy.
I can’t help. It’s that time of year. I am happy to report my Dining Room is complete, and I have moved on to my kitchen and breakfast room. I wanted to hang little boxwood wreaths on the front of my white kitchen cabinet doors, but when I priced them at $14 and $16 each…I had to come up with an alternative plan. (I needed seven!) So, I shopped around online, found a product I liked and in under an hour, made these easy….
DIY Mini Faux Boxwood Wreaths
I located a *faux boxwood garland online for about $8. At 9′ long, it allowed me to get three mini wreaths per garland.
I needed a base because the garlands themselves were flimsy and would not hold their shape on their own. So in steps a few of these…
Wire clothes hangers.
(Can I just say here and now I was surprised I even had
SEVEN of these still around?) 😀
If you don’t have any wire hangers, use a sturdy grade of wire. I cut the hanger part off, and shaped it into a circle. Don’t worry if it’s not an exact circle, it won’t matter once the garland is attached.
Then I simply wired the garland on to the wire circle. It could not have been any easier.
I was worried the faux boxwood would look too..well…FAUX. But once it was all wired on I was quite thrilled with the overall look.
They look so darling on the front of my cabinet doors. I love how they give an instant Farmhouse feel, and the sweater design will be repeated throughout the kitchen and breakfast room in varying forms.
I would love to have the real version of these wreaths, but unless I wanted to strip down the boxwoods in our yard, I had to make do with the faux variety.
At about $4 each, and the fact that I can keep using these again in the future makes them a win-win, don’t you think?
Where would you use these mini wreaths?
