Wreaths are just one of my favorite things to decorate with and being able to change it out for different holidays and seasons makes it even better. But why leave wreaths for just our front door when we can use them inside too?
At least that is my theory and I’m sticking to it. I have a hallway “sort of” downstairs that has a closet right as you walk into our living room. The big white door almost sticks out like a sore thumb to me at times so of course I wanted to do something to help it out some.
That’s when the idea hit me that I should just hang a wreath on it and make it brand new again. But this wreath needed to be something that I could leave hanging year round if I chose. I also wanted something that would match well with any décor while also looking classy at the same time.
When I found a strand of silk boxwood on clearance at Joann, I knew I had to have it to make this wreath. The strand was only $7. Talk about an inexpensive wreath. You have got to make your own too.
- Styrofoam wreath: I actually found mine at the dollar store so check there first. *Also keep in mind that once you add the boxwood the wreath will look larger than its actual size.
- Silk boxwood 6’ strand
- Floral wire
- Burlap ribbon
Place the strand on the top of the styrofoam wreath being sure to tie it down every few inches with floral wire to keep it in place.
Continue tying the strand to the wreath until it is completely covered.
*You may need to use a hot glue gun to glue down any stems of the boxwood if the foam wreath tries to show through.
To add a little extra detail and contrast, I tied burlap ribbon around the bottom to form a bow.
Now you just need to hang that beauty up and enjoy. I absolutely love the way mine turned out.
It is a piece of decoration that I can leave up all year long and really is timeless. Plus I made it for much less than what you would buy it for actually. Decorating on a budget is what I’m all about.
Enjoy your decorating and all the little things in life that it brings.
