This is a very Scandinavian holiday tradition.

You need:
A few branches of fresh boxwood
cutter
6" metall wreath
Florist wire
Stick
Flowerpot
Flower foam

  1. Start with cutting small pieces of the boxwood.
  2. Make small bouquets and fasten them to the wreath with florist wire by twining the wire around the bouquet a few times.
  3. Overlap the nest one and work yourself all the way around.
  4. Cut to size and put the flower foam in the pot.
  5. Add the stick and some box to hide the foam.
  6. Fasten the wreath to the stick with a little wire.
  7. Will keep green for a few days and then dry beautifully.
