Easy DIY Boxwood and Eucalyptus Wreaths
I love having fresh flowers in the house so when I saw that Costco had started carrying eucalyptus filler bouquets I knew it was time to try one of these little wreaths. These are so simple and so satisfying to make! You only need a handful of materials too:
- Embroidery hoops
- Florist wire (or thin wire)
- Wire cutters
- Your choice of greenery (Costco!!)
- Thumb tacks / nails
- Separate your hoops by loosening the little screw mechanism (now you have twice as many hoops!)
- Trim your greenery to size and trim dead and excess pieces
- Take your first sprig of greenery and attach to hoop using wire at the base
- Gently bend your sprig to match the curve of the hoop and attach with wire in the middle and about an inch away from the tip (helps it look "loose")
- Repeat step 4 with different sprigs until you achieve your desired result
- Hang with thumb tack or nail - you can also use fishing line to hang if your hoops aren't hanging from the thumbtacks nicely.
I'm excited to see how these dry and will probably rotate different foliage each season. Also I spray painted some hoola hoops the previous owners left behind for a giant version! Can't wait to post the results!
