I’ve been in the mood to get crafty and thought that it was time to update my front door wreath situation. I have had an old boxwood wreath hanging in my living room for some time and decided that it needed an upgrade. In about 20 minutes, I had a new wreath from my front door with a Rae Dunn twist!

It was pretty simple to make this wreath. I only needed a few simple items to put this together. With the price of all the materials, this project came to just under $25!
What You’ll Need
- 14″ Wire Wreath Form
- Pipe Cleaners (I didn’t have floral wire on hand.)
- Boxwood Garland
- Ticking Stripe Fabric
- Glue Gun
- Subway Tile with Hello Darlin’ vinyl Lettering
What To Do
→ I simply coiled the boxwood wreath around the outside circumference of the wreath form. The boxwood garland I used was the perfect length to cover the entire form.
→ I adhered it by cutting small pieces of pipe cleaners to keep the garland in place here and there wherever I thought it needed to be secure.
→ I cut a piece of fabric about 8 inches long and folded the fabric to the width I wanted. After I was done folding the fabric, I hot glued each end together to make a loop to hang the wreath from. You can sew the fabric together as well, but this was much faster.
→ I purchased the subway tile from a seller on Mercari that had a fun saying in a Rae Dunn-themed font. I hot glued the middle of a long piece of jute twine to the back of the tile and secured each end the the wire wreath form in the back. You can use as much of twine as you feel comfortable when adding your tile. I used a lot and cut the excess after I tied it on.
→ After tying the tile to the form, I nestled it in the boxwood leaves so it would wouldn’t move around when the door opened and closed.
I love the way it looks. It adds the perfect amount of farmhouse charm and it’s simple design can be adjusted for holidays and seasons. I plan on adding a couple of small American flags to this for the 4th of July and some burlap pumpkins for the fall!
