The preserved boxwood wreaths have been hanging for a few months and some are starting to dry out.
To slow or stop the drying I sprayed the wreaths with a foliage sealer. I used Design Master Foliage Sealer to lock in the moisture.
The spray is quick drying and leaves a clear gloss shine. Some may not like the look of the gloss but the wreaths are holding up better and look fresh.
I sprayed each side of the clippings twice. I also had some dried hydrangeas to spray. To make the most of the spray, I laid the hydrangeas on top of the boxwood clippings.
When using the spray make sure to wear a face mask so you do not breathe the vapor. It has a very strong odor and when spraying the area needs to be well ventilated.
Now, I spray all of the clippings prior to making a new wreath. I have found that it makes a huge difference in the sturdiness and freshness of the wreath.
I purchased it from www.createforless.com they have free shipping is you order a certain amount (this amount seems to change), but I bought some burlap ribbon and a pair of scissors on sale. It took about a week to arrive but with free shipping that is a good deal.
