{DIY} Rosemary wreath

Since this is the first time I made a wreath, I googled to find some ideas.  I found this DIY wreath using rosemary on Centsational Girl blog.  We have an overgrown rosemary bush in our backyard.  This is such a good chance to trim off some rosemary sprigs and repurpose them for something pretty for the holiday.  Best of all, it’s free!  I looked around our storage shed and found other materials for this project.  And, cut some red berries from our heavenly bamboo as well.

MATERIALS & TOOLS

 

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Use the thick wire to form a circle.  I made a 12″ circle.  You can make it bigger or smaller depending on your need.  Secure the circle with thin wire.

2. Tie rosemary sprigs to the circle using thin wire.  I tied about 3 layers of rosemary sprigs to get enough thickness for the circle.

3. Insert additional rosemary sprigs into the wire to get a fuller looking wreath.  I kept adding more rosemary sprigs until I achieved the look I wanted.

4. Insert red berries cut from the heavenly bamboo into the rosemary wreath.

5. All done and ready to hang the wreath.  I hanged the wreath with a ribbon on our front door.  I stapled the ribbon onto the top of our front door to hold the wreath, so you don’t see the staples.  Then, make a bow and pin it to the center top of the wreath.  It looks good and smells wonderful!
