Love the farmhouse style?

Hate the farmhouse price?

Yeah…me too.

Joanna Gaines really started a trend with her modern farmhouse decor. Now, my Pinterest and Instagram feeds are filled with beautiful pictures of rustic homes. These homes are simple and clean, emphasizing natural light, wooden textures, greenery, and salvaged or upcycled pieces.

Many of these farmhouses feature a simple green boxwood wreath. These are probably the most versatile wreaths in existence. They can hang on the front door, over the mantle, on old windows, on chalkboards, in pictures frames, pretty much anywhere.

Despite the simple design, most stores like to charge a steep price for their boxwood wreaths. I tried several stores and looked around online, but never found a boxwood wreath for less than $50. Maybe I’m just cheap or maybe it’s the crafter in me, but that’s insane.

So, I put together my own boxwood wreath for just $20 and you can too!

supplies to make a boxwood wreath

Cut or Pull the Stems off of the Garland

You’ll need to cut or pull the stems off of the garland.

I bought these garlands at Hobby Lobby for $10 each. Their regular price is $20, however I bought them when they were 50% off. They go on sale every other week. I didn’t have to cut the stems off of these garlands, as they just popped off when I pulled them.

Place the Stems on the Wreath Form

Using a small dot of hot glue on the base of the stem, start placing the stems on the wreath form. It helps the stem stick better if you push the bottom down into the grapevine. I started with a row of stems in the center of the wreath form. After it was finished I filled in the inner and outer edges.

Add a Bow

Many of the boxwood wreaths that I’ve seen are completely unadorned, keeping with the simple farmhouse style. However, I decided to add a burlap bow to mine. I didn’t glue the bow to the wreath, in case I wanted to remove it later. Instead, I attached it with a piece of floral wire.

Hang it up and enjoy!
