Do you do anything special for St. Patricks Day? It seems like it is coming up fast this year. In the past, I never really decorated for this holiday. Most of the seasonal decor I find for St. Patty’s Day is pretty minimal or geared toward party supplies. So I usually skip it.

I thought I would take a different approach to the holiday this time and go with Boxwood balls and plants to bring the luck of the Irish into my home.

I am teaming up with my friends at Oriental Trading once again. This time I put together some trendy Boxwood Topiaries and a fun Boxwood Ball Garland. These two projects are super simple to put together. Check out Oriental Trading’s St. Patrick’s Day Holiday Supply Store.

Boxwood balls are trending right now and this is an easy way to get an expensive look by making the topiaries and garland yourself. Plus if you missed my DIY Boxwood Wreath made from a Boxwood garland. You must go back and check that out.

Easy DIY Boxwood Ball Topiary


Boxwood Topiaries:

Use rocks to weigh down topiary

Place the 3 inch foam disc in the bottom of the galvanized pot. Make a hole in the center of the foam with the dowel.

Remove dowel and add decorative rocks for weight. This will keep the topiary from toppling over.

Add foam to stabilize a topiary

Place the 4-inch disc inside the pot and push it down into the pot. Push dowel through the center of the 4-inch foam and then down into the hole in 3-inch foam disc. Cut the dowels down to your preferred height using a hacksaw.

Place the 7-inch Boxwood Ball down onto the dowel and slide it to the top of the pot. Place the 10-inch Boxwood Ball on the top of the dowel and tie with floral wire or hot glue the top to the tip of the dowel to secure it. Repeat steps for the second topiary.

Boxwood Garland:

Push one end of the jute twine through the center of a 4 inch Boxwood Ball. Add 5 balls total to the string. Decide how long of a garland you need and tie a simple loop knot in both ends of twine. Separate the balls by sliding them down the twine. Super simple.

I went through my home and gathered up all the small plants I have collected lately. Then just simply place them together to make one big group of green.

I just love all the green plants in one place. The white of the vases and pops of green really make the center of the room pop! I may need to leave them here and buy more plants. It brings a fun bohemian vibe into my living room.

    I love your St. Patrick’s Day Mantel. It’s a lot of green with a touch of St. Patrick’s Day and can easily transition to Spring.
