I purchased this boxwood wreath on a trip to Magnolia years ago.

While it wasn’t terribly expensive, it wasn’t inexpensive either.

However, I use it all over the house.

I’ve been super surprised at how versatile this little wreath has been!

Shortly after the new year, my BFF Roxanne and I were doing a little shopping at JoAnne’s.

Across the isle I saw piles of what I thought were boxwood wreaths in the 70% off section.

But it got me thinking.

Couldn’t I make these into wreaths?

Then I rolled the garland back up, leaving about 2 inches that I wrapped around the wreath to hold it together.

At this point, I needed to make it look more wreath like.

Each of the rolls of garland made 2 mini faux boxwood wreaths.

Are they perfect?

No, but at a glance you can’t tell that they aren’t the real thing.

Wrapping a ribbon, adorned with hearts, around the wreath made them the perfect Valentine’s Day decorations for my kitchen chairs.
