I'm ending my Holiday DIY Week with my very favorite project to date! A square boxwood wreath with burlap bow! Love, love, love this!
The square frame came from Goodwill. It originally framed an interesting print, but I just wanted it for its square shape. The frame was 18" on each side. The spray paint is Krylon's "Seaweed". I also needed some green floral wire and four pieces of boxwood garland (found at JoAnn).
First I removed the print and glass from the frame and spray painted it. I needed it to be green so that the frame wouldn't show through the garland.
Next, I attached my first piece of garland to the frame using the green floral wire. I simply wrapped the garland around (and around, and around...) the frame. One piece of garland covered about 18" of frame. I repeated this process until the whole frame was covered!
There! Beautiful, no?
I found some nice, thick rolls of burlap at Hobby Lobby for half price! $2.50 a roll! Whoot!

Thanks for joining me this week for all of the fun DIY projects! I hope one or two of them inspired you to grab your glue gun and get busy!
