    Using your pruning shears, clip off random pieces measuring about 8-10 inches in length. In order to create the natural and slightly ‘deconstructed’ appearance of this particular wreath, your pieces need not match too precisely in size or appearance.

    Starting from the outside edge, begin to insert each clipping between the vines of the grapevine wreath. Submerge the clipping into the wreath about 2-3 inches. This will ensure that your clippings remain secure without the use of hot glue or floral wire.

    Make your way along the outside edge until you have created your first circle of boxwood.

    Once you’ve worked your way around the first time, do the same starting just inside the first circle. Make your way around, creating a second circle, then a third and a fourth, depending on the width of the grapevine. Do this until you’ve covered the grapevine in boxwood clippings. Be sure to finish your wreath off by adding clippings along the sides and the interior edges of the wreath so that none of the grapevine shows through.

    When you’ve completely covered your grapevine in boxwood (with the exception of the back), cut away any pieces that may appear out of place.
