“I only paid $2 for this!” I excitedly pointed at the ratty old window frame leaning against the garage wall. My husband was skeptical. “What are you going to do with that?” Oh, I had plans. We moved into our home nearly two years ago and the wall above our bed was still bare. It needed something, and I was dreaming about an upcycled window frame headboard. I was also lusting after a boxwood wreath, but no way was I going to pay $40+ for one. DIY boxwood wreath? You bet. I used my coupons to purchase a grapevine wreath and boxwood garland at my local craft store for about $15.
Grab your glue gun and get ready to create your own boxwood wreath on the cheap! Weave one end of the boxwood garland through the grapevine wreath.
Slowly wrap the boxwood around the top surface of the wreath, securing with hot glue along the way.
My boxwood garland wrapped twice around the wreath, creating a full look. Ta-da! For about $15 and 10 minutes of time, you can make your own boxwood wreath. Now let’s upcycle that old frame.
I cleaned the dirt and grime off with a textured antibacterial wipe, then used an angled sanding sponge to remove the finish and smooth out rough edges. To match my home decor, I first used Rustoleum Painter’s Touch 2x Ultra Cover in Satin Stone Gray. Then I used Rustoleum Painter’s Touch 2x Ultra Cover in Satin Lagoon. When that was dry, I used the angled sanding sponge on the corners and edges to reveal a little of the gray paint and create a rustic look. I just love how it turned out!
What color would you use for your upcycled window frame? Where would you hang a DIY boxwood wreath?
