Boxwood Wreath

I just love small boxwood wreaths.  I've seen several on Pinterest that are so cute.

So....I decided I wanted one and chose to make it myself.  I have several boxwoods growing in my yard and I've used them before in many things.  I gathered my needlenose pliers, thin green wire, boxwood of course, and a small wire wreath frame.  I made my frame from heavy duty wire and it worked great.

 I held a thin boxwood branch and wrapped wire around it as I held it to the form.  It only took about 30 minutes  to make the entire wreath.
Here's how mine turned out with a pretty cream colored ribbon.  I think I'll put it on one of my bookcase or maybe hang it on a door knob.  What do you think?

Try one for yourself.  It isn't hard but so rewarding.
