Fresh Rosemary Wreath Tutorial. Super simple steps for making a wreath from fresh rosemary.
Today I’m sharing a very lovely and fragrant fresh rosemary wreath and even I am a little surprised at how good it smells! Right after I made it, I hung it on my vintage ladder and the scent immediately filled the room.
It’s been a few days and although the rosemary is drying out, the wreath still smells heavenly. It’s very pretty to look at but the scent is definitely the best part. Like most projects I share, it was very easy too. You don’t need much to make it either!
Fresh Rosemary Wreath Supply List:
- Grapevine wreath (mine is 16 inches wide.)
- Fresh rosemary sprigs
- Garden shears
- Florist wire
- Fresh or dried lavender
I’ve been letting my rosemary grow so I had some nice long stems. I cut down two plants and there was plenty of rosemary to go around this 16 inch wreath. I didn’t count them, but I probably had around 30 stems.
Begin by gathering 3 or 4 stems of rosemary and attaching them to the wreath with the florist wire. Wrap the wire around the bottom of the stems. Continue around the wreath, attaching bunches of rosemary. Overlap the bunches by a few inches to hide the wire. When I was finished, I had used 8 bunches of rosemary.
I didn’t think about this next step until the wreath was finished. I decided to add little bunches of dried lavender. (That’s why there is no lavender in the supply picture.) I just tucked them into the rosemary and did not use any wire.
I am a sucker for any kind of wreath, but this one has sort of stolen my heart. I love the combination of rosemary and lavender. It makes me smile when I walk in the room because not only does it look pretty, it smells heavenly. That, my friends, is a decorating home run!
One of the things that prompted this project was this soap I found on a recent shopping trip.
It’s Michel Design Works Lavender Rosemary soap and lotion. Oh my gosh. This stuff is not only packaged beautifully, it smells so good. I don’t usually buy boutique dish soap but in this case, I just couldn’t resist. This makes a reasonably-priced gift for anyone…including yourself! I keep all this right by my kitchen sink and enjoy it every single day.
Thank you so much for spending a little time with me today. I’m rolling along and will begin to share some basic fall ideas and inspiration…so see you soon!
