Weave Greenery

Cut sprigs of greenery off the larger store-bought bunch. Take two sprigs of greenery and weave together with florist wire. There’s no method to this technique — just wrap until the sprigs feel secure. Continue adding lengths of faux greenery until the garland spans the top and sides of your gift box. Once the greenery sprigs are the correct length, cut the florist wire and tie off the end.
