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.

Materials

  • Clippings of bay laurel or rosemary
  • Wire cutters
  • Clear hair bands
  • 10-inch double-ring wire form
  • 26 gauge green floral wire
  • Pre-cut rose hip and eucalyptus sprays
  • Bow

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Make a bundle of bay laurel or rosemary clippings; secure with clear hair band. Attach to wire form with green floral wire. Repeat until entire wire form is covered.

  2. Step 2

    If making a bay laurel wreath, adorn with rose hips; if making a rosemary wreath, adorn with eucalyptus seedpods.

  3. Step 3

    Finish with bow.

    Contemplating making my first wreath this holiday season. I wish there were more instructional photos here showing how big the rosemary bundles should be and how many it will take to cover before buying all the materials...
