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.

Wedding

Ellen & Cory’s
late spring Seattle
celebration

Today we share the blissful wedding of two creative architects, Ellen and Cory as they tied the knot on a late spring afternoon in Seattle. What started out as a mild and cloudy morning ended up being a picture perfect, clear and sunny day as 120 guests excitedly gathered to admire, celebrate and rejoice in the couple’s union as husband and wife. We love the rustic and warm yet industrial and modern style which they skilfully combined with creative graphic stationery and elegant floral designs. Captured by Alyssa Wilcox Photography, we share some of the highlights of their beautiful celebration.
