There is something about wreaths that makes my heart go all warm and fuzzy. A house with a big, leafy wreath on the front door exudes hospitality and welcomes you in. I always imagine big feast preparations in process behind that front door. I am extremely proud to say that this year my front door looks like one of those. Yay!
Believe it or not, but wreaths are a lot easier to make than you might think. The most important thing is finding some lush greens you can use (you can never have too much). I have two super over achieving rosemary plants in my garden, so I immediately decided they will become my wreath.
You will need:
1. Rosemary (or whatever greens you can find), a wire frame (I used an embroidery hoop), rubber elastic bands, green wire and a wire cutter.
2. Take about 3 rosemary sprigs and tie them together at the bottom using the elastic rubber band. You’ll need quite a few of these bundles, I used about 10 + for my wreath.
3. Using the wire, fasten the bottom part of your bundle to the loop. Your next bundle should then cover the previous bundles wire and elastic with it’s top.
4. Keep doing this until your frame is completely covered.
I made the small wreath at the top by only using the wire and rosemary, very cute final touch on gifts.
