DIY Rosemary Wreath

Comments

RosemaryWreath2RosemaryWreath1RosemaryWreath3RosemaryWreath4RosemaryWreath6I have an abundance of rosemary growing outside and there’s even more growing up the hill from our house! I will never be able to use that much rosemary, so I thought it would be cool and festive (’tis the season!) to make a DIY rosemary wreath! We used fresh rosemary, but I think next time I would let it dry for a day or two and then put it on the wreath. That way it gives you a better estimate of what it will look like. To give the wreath a little twist, we cut an old leather belt I had and buckled it around the top of the wreath to hang from. I love the rustic look and it matches our “ranch” house perfectly!

We used a round, metal wreath frame, needle nose pliers and green wire to attach the rosemary.

Before you wire it, place the rosemary around the metal frame, giving yourself an outline. Then start attaching it using the wire and needle nose pliers.

You’ll need quite a bit of rosemary to make it look like a full wreath, especially when it’s dried.

If you don’t have an old belt, you can buy a piece of leather or wire to hang the wreath from. For the leather belt, we just cut it to size and then nailed in some extra holes to buckle it through.

We also added some lavender to the top to give the rosemary wreath some color. Most relaxing and best smelling wreath around!

    So beautiful!! And I can smell it just from the photos 🙂 I’ve never made a wreath before, but I think I’ll try to make this one! It would look so nice on our light yellow front door.
