Old Boxwood Wreath - New Look!

Old Boxwood Wreath - New Look!

boxwood wreath with tulips

 

Yesterday I took down my boxwood wreaths and removed the Easter bows and carrot decorations. Changing up a premade boxwood wreath is so easy! Anyone can do it. 

If you're not a crafty person or wreath maker, this is still something that you can do. 

A premade wreath is one of the easiest wreaths to dress up for your front door. I have two square boxwoods on my side entryways and just change out the decorations for the season or event.

You can do the same easy change out with a Eucalyptus or Magnolia wreath. Anything that is thick and green. Not talking about a pine wreath here which works fine for the winter season.

Tools

Easy Flower Bush Cutter

EZ Bowmaker

RA1574 Natural Jute Twine

Zip Ties, Chenille Stems, Floral Pick

Summary

The first thing was to make a small bundle from six of the tulip stems. They were secured together with a zip tie and ends wrapped in jute twine just to cover them up.

The stems would likely be covered by the bow, but it never hurts to add a little extra touch. I didn't use any hot glue on anything, because this was a decoration for my own use.

Make a bow with the ribbons either free-handed or use the EZ Bowmaker like I did.  The bow was 12" in width and tails were 16"

Attach the floral bundle to the back of the bow with the chenille stem and insert a floral pick. (I used a wooden skewer from the kitchen and just shortened it.)

Insert the bow/flower bouquet into the Styrofoam of the wreath. If your wreath is not on a Styrofoam base, just use some floral wire or a couple of chenille stems and secure around the form.

Final Touch

Trim the ends of your ribbon if you like with a dove-tail or angled cut. If you're using different ribbon and it has a pretty back side, roll it up so the back shows. Give the ribbons a little life by running your fingers down the streamers to give it a little curl. Adjust or fluff out the bow as necessary.

Move the tulips around a bit and have some facing to the side and some to the front.
