Boxwood Balls

I plan on making a dozen of these boxwood balls to hang over our dining room table. I think they will look lovely hanging at varying lengths. My only concern is that boxwood tends to smell like a bus load of teenagers returning from camp.

Ha! Would Fabreeze help?
I bet they're going to look so elegant! You could always just hand out clothespins for everyone's noses!

I love boxwood but it is so dang stinky. I always wonder why you can never find "artificial" boxwood and all of the craft stores (I've never been able to find any).

I'm now spraying Fabreeze everywhere, don't have any boxwood, but you've made me parinoid...

They look pretty, but I've never smelled boxwood. Is it that bad?

I have boxwood in the front yard. I never knew it was what smelled, I aways blames the cats and dogs.

Looks nice. Don't know if I'd want to smell that whilst eating tho. But it does look nice.

I had no idea that it smelled so bad! Maybe spitz it with some Evergreen spray from Bath and Body? The small canisters are on sale for 1.00 each right now.

Lesson please....
