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
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!
