I made this boxwood out of one that I purchased at TJMaxx several years ago.
See the topiary tree in the far right corner? It was pretty at first but it wasn't so beautiful after our move.
So I took it apart and made two small boxwoods with the green stems.
I purchased two urns from a garden store and the foam balls & vine wreaths from JoAnne's. I used liquid nails to secure the wreath to the urn and hot glue to attach the foam balls to each wreath.. Then picked each stick of boxwood leaves off the tree and placed them into my little foam balls.
I had plenty of green to go around...twice!
I will find another place for the rest of the greens. (see HERE)
Two is better than one.
They are perfect for my covered porch.
Preserved Boxwoods require a little maintenance. I will take better care of these little beauties with a spritz of water now and then to keep them moist.
What a gorgeous day it was to craft on the porch.
