DIY Rosemary Wreath

 Our crafting group, the one that focuses on sustainable crafting and where we get our inspiration from pins we liked on Pinterest, is bringing in the holidays for this month's craft.  Our theme is Christmas and you will be so glad that you came to see how to make this simple but adorable rosemary wreath. Thank you to host Julie from Sum of their Stories.  She does a great job keeping us organized!


DIY Rosemary Wreath


It's the end of the growing season for most outdoor plants in the heart of America, so I knew I had to harvest what was left of my herbs.  My drying rack is working overtime right now.  I saved a few of the woodiest stems to make the wreaths.  They do require a bit more bending and coaxing into place than the more flexible younger stems, but I was using those to dry out and make rosemary salt.

DIY Rosemary Wreath

What you need:

To make the rosemary wreaths, you will need the following:


how to make DIY Rosemary Wreath


3-4 8" to 10" rosemary stems to make a 6-8" wreath

wire or twine

a festive bow

scissors

Directions:


DIY holiday wreath


  1. Form the branches into a circle and secure the ends together by wrapping with wire or tying them with twine.
  2. Shape the branches into a circle as you form.
  3. When the shape is how you like it, tie the ends together.
  4. Add your bow where you like it the most, on the top like mine or the bottom.
  5. Hang is a spot where everyone can see it!
That's it!  I told you it was super simple!  The best part, to keep them fresh, is to spray the wreaths lightly with a fine mist two-three times a month and a little more frequently in December.  If the fragrance seems to dim, break a couple of the leaves to release the oils.

Hints


Mist a few times a month to keep fresh.
Break a few leaves to revive the fragrance.
Save bows all year around to use on craft projects like this.  This bow came from the packaging on a mug.

  2. Oh, I need to make this! I have a bunch of rosemary growing in my backyard and in a large pot on the front porch. I love the smell of rosemary, so I think I need this wreath. ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜
