If you are a regular reader of this blog you know that I love my herbs. I have been covering them up every night in an attempt to keep them alive as long as I can. The heartier herbs like the rosemary and lavender have been holding up well. Come the first hard snow and I'll have to let them go. Until then, we are enjoying every meal we can get with fresh herbs from our back yard! I did want to think up a fun way to dry my rosemary and lavender, since they were so bountiful this year! I decided to make some Christmas herb wreaths!
For this project you will need:
a woody, hearty herb such as rosemary, lavender, bay leaf, etc.
a wreath form
I made my wreath form from some flexible sticks I got from my lemon verbena plant. They were still a little green which helped them bend a little easier. I wired them together with the floral wire. Don't worry if your form isn't perfect. The herbs will cover it up!
I then took individual sprigs of rosemary and attached it to my wreath form with the wire, working my way around the form.
When I was done, I used some ribbon to make a bow and hang it on my door. Easy and lovely!
The nice thing about an herb wreath is that it will dry out and the herbs can be used in your cooking! Plus, it smells amazing!
I did the same thing with my lavender. I made this wreath a little smaller.
Thanks for reading!
