My boxwood wreath to cheer up the front door

I'd like to think I was super crafty, but in all honesty I'm not so crafty. My daughter is craftier than I - that sounds weird, doesn't it? I decided that I wanted to put up a boxwood wreath on my front door cause I saw it somewhere on Pinterest and thought I'd run to Michael's and buy one with my 40% off coupon. You know what? I'm a little behind on seasons, apparently. There was ONLY fall stuff! I couldn't even find foam wreaths, but I wanted a square wreath anyway. So here is what I made!

Isn't it pretty? It's cute and fairly easy and inexpensive! 

Here are the supplies I needed: square frame kit {found this on the clearance aisle}, wood initial, boxwood garland {found in the wedding department}, and floral wire {already had this laying around}.

I put together the frame kit into a square, then I began wrapping the garland around the frame with the floral wire. It was easy, sort of. Once I got a rhythm going it was easy. I also attached two screws on the back of the wooden initial and took the wire and wrapped it around the frame. 

On the back, I used command hanging strips and attach to the frame and then to the front door. The thing I love about these is they are strong {the wreath only fell off once when the door was slammed HARD}, you can adjust it if you put it on crooked {it's velcro}, it's invisible {no one can see how you hung it}, and when you're ready to take them off there is nothing left behind. I sound like a commercial, don't I? I LOVE these and have been using them everywhere in my house to hang all sorts of things on the walls!

Doesn't my cheery, yellow front door now look more cheery?
