Elegant Holiday Wreath

Whether you prefer traditional winter greens or the sophisticated boxwood wreath, this is a quick and easy way to dress up a store-bought wreath. See our boxwood garland project to make a matching garland.

  • Store-bought wreath, choose traditional greens or boxwood
  • Pears: 6-8 Green Anjou for traditional or 8-10 Red Anjou for boxwood
  • Florist wire
  • Bow (with wire)
  • Glue gun (optional)

Begin with a store-bought wreath. Insert a 12- to 16-inch length of florist wire through each pear crosswise, and wire them onto the wreath. To add the clusters of ornaments shown on our traditional wreath, use florist wire or a glue gun. To make the boxwood wreath as pictured, add rose hips or berries, with florist wire or a glue gun. Finish with a beautiful holiday bow.
