I adore fresh greenery during the holidays, but wiring garland sometimes feels like a giant task. Then, a light bulb went off when I saw this lovely pin and I used the idea to make a super simple garland. It has lots of festive punch but requires very little work.

Ready for super simplicity?


-boxwood bunch — I used two boxwood branches
-ribbon — one narrow, one wide, a sturdy grosgrain works well
-gardening sheers

Cut small bunches from the boxwood bunch.

Wrap each bunch with a length of the narrow ribbon.

Tie each bunch on to the wider ribbon using equal spacing. I ended up shortening the space between to 8″ instead of 12″. More the merrier, right? Also, I made it so the boxwood bunch tie was on the front while the garland string ribbon tie was on the backside.

String it across a doorway, in a window, over the mantel or outside in a winter wonderland! Then sit back and enjoy it.

This was a super easy and really satisfying project. If you’re hosting a party this weekend, you have plenty of time to whip of one (or more!) of these. If you make one, I hope you’ll let me know!
