Fragrant Wreathes

Fill your home with the sweet smell of bay laurel (or rosemary) with this easy-to-make wreath. And when the holidays are over, don't throw it away: Be sure to wash the wreath well right after you make it so you can remove the dried herbs from the wire frame later for use in cooking.
