Here’s a quick tutorial for making a boxwood wreath bow…
 
1. Form a circle with some green craft wire
2. Cut several sprigs of boxwood
3. Using floral wire, attach boxwood to wreath form; continue all the way around 
4. You can add other types of winter greens if you wish until it looks nice and full
5. Cut a piece of cardstock a little longer than the width of the wreath
6. Write down desired word or message
7. Cut off a triangle at either end
8. Fold at either end as shown
9. Bend paper to form a dome 
10. Attach twine to one side of the wreath through the wire
11. Tie around already wrapped box
12. Hot glue banner to wreath
 
And there you go, a sweet little Christmas boxwood wreath bow..:) 
 
For this one, I added some pretty winter berries.

    Thanks
