DIY Christmas Decor – Trio of Boxwood Wreaths
Today is the day I officially started decorating for Christmas. Why so soon? Because my home is scheduled to be on a couple online Christmas tours this year starting the first week in December! So I’m not waiting until after Thanksgiving to deck the halls. I’ve gotta start doing it now or I won’t be ready! It was such a gloomy day here today, I’m surprised my photos turned out as bright as they did.
Want to see my first DIY Christmas decor project? I created a simple door hanging with a trio of boxwood wreaths.
Boxwood wreaths are my absolute favorite!
They’re not fragrant, but I love the soft, shiny leaves.
To create this simple DIY Christmas decor door hanging, I gathered 3 small boxwood wreaths and some ribbon.
If I remember correctly, I purchased the trio of Christmas boxwood wreaths from Decor Steals.
Measure how long you want your hanging, and cut your ribbon to size.
Add a few inches for looping the ribbon around each wreath.
I found 2 spools of this ribbon at the local November flea market.
Loop the ribbon around what will be the top of each wreath.
Make sure you wrap it so the ribbon runs behind the wreaths.
When you get to your 3rd wreath, tie it off in back and clip the ribbon.
Loop the ribbon round a hook or nail to hang your DIY Christmas decor of boxwood wreaths.
Use another piece of ribbon to tie a bow, allowing the ends to trail down a bit.
To give the wreaths some Christmas company, I stuffed red berry sprays in a white ironstone pitcher.
My first official DIY Christmas decor project is done! Last year I made fresh boxwood wreaths for Christmas. This year I decided to purchase preserved boxwood wreaths so they’d last longer. I’m lovin’ this simple look for the door!
Speaking of Christmas, I’m teaming up with several bloggers to give away a $500 Visa gift card and an iPad Mini! The giveaway starts Monday, November 18th. Be sure to stop back and register to win an iPad Mini and/or $500 Visa gift card!!

What is so beautiful is its simplicity. The leaves that are part of nature. And yes, the shiny leaves. To me this is the best kind of decor, not the elaborate stuff that seems overdone. I love your first Christmas project!
These are really sweet. I like their diminutive size. The red berries always look nice in a white pitcher. I have some in one too! Have a nice Sunday.
Very pretty. I love the subtle and pretty look it gives the door. Love the red pop of berries in your white iron stone.
Soooooo pretty!! I saw those wreaths on Decor Steals…seeing yours makes me wish I had ordered them!
I love boxwood too. These are so pretty!
Hi Jennifer, Great idea – thank you! I got those little wreaths too and I’m going to hang them with a ribbon on my new to me old antique shutters. I’m looking forward to seeing your home on the tours!
What a beautiful look. Those berries in ironstone are awesome too!!!
Very pretty, Jennifer! Such a simple project but it really adds a lot to the décor.
I have these, too, from Antique Farmhouse (in three different sizes) and love using them for Christmas and all year round. Love your choice of ribbon!
I have those from Décor Steals or Antique Farmhouse but you’ve given me a fresh idea for this year’s display….. Thanks!
Love it with all the white!
So pretty! Love your ribbon choice with the green wreaths…the vivid white, green and red is just beautiful! Hope you’ll come share at AMAZE ME MONDAY!
Love this look so much! I have been itching to add a wreath trio similar to this somewhere in my home. Love how festive yours is! 🙂
The color is just right! Not too much, simple and cheerful. Love it.
What a gorgeous project.
So pretty! Where do you get your boxwood wreaths from?
