Rosemary Wreath – DIY

November 22, 2012 by post tags
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. Yah!
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 overachieving rosemary plants in my garden, so I immediately decided they will become my wreath.

What you will need

  • Rosemary
  • A wire frame
  • Rubber elastic bands
  • Green wire
  • A wire cutter

  • Step 1

    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.
  • Step 2

    Using the wire, fasten the bottom part of your bundle to the loop. Your next bundle should then cover the previous bundle’s wire and elastic with its top.
  • Step 3

    Keep doing this until your frame is completely covered.
