DIY Boxwood Diamond Wreath

by Grace Bonney

Boxwood wreaths are a holiday classic. They’re gorgeous in their simplicity and I always prefer them on their own without too much fuss. But for a modern take on this traditional decor, I decided to try making one in an interesting shape, like a diamond! It makes for a stylish upgrade while still keeping things simple. –Amy from Homey Oh My!

Wreath materials
-basswood, 1.5″ wide
-glue gun
-boxwood branches


Wood placements 1. Position the wood in a diamond shape, making sure each side is the same length. The inner edges for this one are roughly 7.25 inches long.

2. Glue all the wood pieces together at the corners of the diamond with a hot glue gun.

5. Stick down the end onto the wood while the glue is still hot, then secure the other end of the branch onto the wood by dotting glue underneath it. Hold the branches in place for a few seconds until the glue cools a bit.

6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 all over the diamond, making sure to layer and switch up the direction of the branches to create a fuller look.


7. Pull ribbon through the top corner of the diamond wreath and tie a bow.
