Easy Boxwood Wreath

One of my favorite DIY blogs is The Handmade Home.  I am constantly impressed by the projects that Ashley creates.  When I saw her post on a DIY Monogram Wreath, I knew I wanted to make my own.

The material list is short and sweet.  In fact, I did not have to buy anything--I already had the wreath form, green floral wire and dried boxwoods


I broke apart the dried boxwoods into smaller chunks that could be woven in between the stick wreath form.  I did not even have to use glue.  At the end, I cut three pieces of floral wire to secure some the edges that were sticking out too far.


The pearl "E" pendant was a gift from a dear college friend that I've had for nearly 5 years.  I simply strung a new silk ribbon through it and tied it onto the top portion of the wreath


And the little birdie friend?  I found her in my craft box.  She is enjoying her new nest.

The pop of green really brightens my bathroom and adds visual interest to what was just a blank wall over my towel bar.

The most gratifying projects are ones where no extra materials have to be bought, but you're able to work with items you already own--agreed?
