spring boxwood wreath

Make sure they know it’s spring with this stunner of a wreath! We’ll show you how easy it is to combine boxwood greenery with eye-catching succulents, gorgeous roses and ranunculi. It’s a fresh (and lovely!) take on the season!
Step 1
Take a look at your wire wreath form and you’ll see that one side is concave (curved inward, like the inside of a bowl) and the other is convex (curved outward, like the outside of a ball). Place the form on your working surface so that the concave side is facing up. 
Step 2
Lay both greenery garlands on top of the wire wreath form and then tuck them into the curved groove of the form. Use floral wire to fasten the garlands to the form every 8” or so. 
Step 3
Take a little time to fluff the garlands so that they completely cover the wire form. When you’re done, you should have a wreath that’s full and round. 
Step 4
First, we’ll attach that cute sign. Use floral wire to fasten its jute hanger to the wire form. You’ll want the sign to hang in the center of the wreath. 
Step 5
Cut apart both of your floral bundles and set the large succulents aside for now. Re-arrange the floral pieces into smaller bundles as desired, or as shown in our project image, and tuck into the wreath across the top. Make sure to cut and arrange a few leaves from the bundles, too.
 
TIP: We didn’t use the lavender from the succulent/lavender bundle, but if you like it, you definitely should!
Step 6
Next, take those large succulents and tuck them in around the flowers that you added to your wreath. 
Step 7
Let’s add the mini succulents now. Just push them in right around where you wired the jute hanger in place. 
Step 8
Stand back and take a look at your wreath. This is the perfect time to make any adjustments to your flowers, succulents and leaves. Once you’re completely happy with the way everything looks, use floral wire to fasten each piece into place.
