Boxwood Clover Wreath for St. Patrick’s Day

To decorate my front door for March, I made a unique St. Patrick’s Day wreath.

I used utility wire to make a wreath form in the shape of a clover and then I added Boxwood sprigs to decorate it.

I love how this looks on our front door; it’s the perfect early March door decoration.

Supplies

Very few supplies are needed to make this St. Patrick’s Day wreath.

Make a Clover Shaped Wreath Form

Make a clover-shaped wreath form by bending wire into three connected loops with a stem. I used the head of a tennis racket as a template for making the three loops.

Bend in the outside of each loop to form a heart shape.

Cut sprigs of Boxwood to use to cover the wreath form.

I didn’t condition the sprigs before making the wreath but doing so will keep the Boxwood fresh and green longer. To condition the clippings, simply soak them in a bucket of water overnight.

Wire Boxwood to Wreath Form

The boxwood shown in the picture above was enough to cover one loop.  I worked outside so that it would be easy to stop for more clippings when I needed them.

Use floral wire to attach the Boxwood sprigs to the wire wreath form.

Keep adding Boxwood until the wreath form is completely covered.

Hang the Wreath

To hang the wreath, I made a loop using the floral wire and wired it onto the utility wire wreath form.

My pots have been bare since Christmas and I’m anxious to fill them with Pansies for spring.

My ducks are Virginia Metalcrafters Naughty and Nice. Our deceased neighbor, Ann Dill, once told me that her mother designed Naughty and Nice but I am not sure if that is true.

Don’t you love it when a project that you have in mind works out just as you intended?  That is the case for this Boxwood clover.

Boxwood keeps its color very well, so this wreath will look great on my door through St. Patrick’s Day.

After St. Patrick’s Day, I will remove the Boxwood and save the wreath form to use again.

  1. This is awesome! It looks great and you gave wonderful instructions. So many St. Patty’s Day decor items are glitzy. Your wreath is perfect.

    My post for the Mega party will go up later today. Hope you’ll visit.

  2. Love it Paula! Some times the St. Patrick stuff you see in the stores is so..well, cheesy. Your wreath is such a lovely natural decoration to celebrate the day. Happy to be on tour with you. Please know I appreciate your comments & visits very much!

  3. Great job! Where did you get your boxwood? I had eyed some boxwood wreaths at the Farm Basket a while back but I just can’t see myself paying so much for them. St. Patricks is always a good sign that Spring is just around the corner 🙂

    1. I got my boxwood from my yard. Boxwood wreaths are so easy to make. Don’t pay the Farm Basket, make your own. If your yard doesn’t have boxwood, certainly a neighbor has bushes that they’d allow you to clip from for wreath making.

      I am just about ready for spring!

  4. Beautiful Paula. I just discovered fresh boxwood wreaths over the holidays and I’m hooked. Planning to plant boxwoods in the yard so I could use them to make wreaths. 🙂 Happy to be hosting the Scoop Linky Party with you!

    1. These parties are fun, aren’t they Vidya? I love having boxwood at my fingertips for wreath making. I’m lucky, if I ever run out, all of my neighbors have yards full for clipping.

    1. Thanks, Richella! Our front door is great for wreaths and you know that I enjoy making them. This week has been great because I’ve been off from school because of snow.
