How to do it

Step 1 Step 1: Trim Greenery

Cut off the excess stem from a branch of faux boxwood then snip the decorative greenery into small sprigs so it will be easier for you to control the shape of your wreath. Leave several inches of stem on the sprigs; you'll need the length to assemble the wreath. Repeat for any other greenery.

Step 2 Step 2: Create Bundles

To create bundles of greenery by twisting florists wire around the stems of a handful of sprigs. We used about three sprigs per bunch and made 18 small bundles to cover a 24-inch wreath form.

Step 3 Step 3: Attach to Wreath

For our design, we alternated between bundles of boxwood and other greenery. But you can arrange them however you like. Secure each bundle to the wreath using hot glue and florists wire as needed to secure stray branches. Once you've attached all your bundles,  fill in any gaps with single sprigs so you don't see any of the wreath form.

Step 4 Step 4: Finish and Hang

Hang your handmade wreath with a heavy-duty hook on the front door or somewhere in your home. Keep a few extra pieces of greenery to fill in gaps you may not see until the wreath is hung; you can poke these in loosely or secure with glue.
