Recycled Boxwood for a Wreath

Advertisements
I plucked my old cone shaped boxwood to fill my porch urns.
There was enough left over for this wreath.

Each little bunch of leaves is attached with wire to a wooden pick. It was really easy to pull each one from the foam cone and stick them into the hay wreath. I left the plastic wrap on the hay because I will need to spritz my preserved leaves once in a while to keep them fresh.
I poked an ‘S’ hook through the hay for easy hanging.
The new {old} wreath looks nice on the inside of our entry door.
A few years ago I paid $79.99 for the cone shaped topiary at TJMax – without a pot.  I knew it was a good deal because the preserved boxwood topiaries that I had my eye on at the time were really pricey.
I think I have gotten my moneys worth.

Two filled urns and now a lovely wreath.
Recycled, Reused….Resourceful and Pretty.

I love everything you've made out of your old topiary! You made it go far. Yes, those evergreen wreaths and potted plants are expensive. That was a great idea to reuse the stems into other projects!

Great idea to reuse the boxwood! It all looks great.
