Directions for DIY Rosemary Wreath
Be sure to cut the rosemary fresh for this project. If it is dried out, the branches won’t bend properly. Once cut, put them in a bucket with a few inches of water until ready to make the decor project.
If you plant seems dirty, rinse the sprigs to remove any dirt. Gently pat them dry, then let them dry for about an hour. Just be sure to not leave them for too long because the springs will become brittle and break.
Take the first piece of rosemary and use floral wire to secure it to the wire form.
Wrap it gently around the sprig and once a few inches from the end, add the next piece and wrap it in.
Keep adding new sprigs to the DIY rosemary wreath until it is full. Use the wire cutters to trim any loose ends of wire or springs.
Use twine to wrap around the wreath and create a way to hang it up. Add a twine bow if bows are your thing. They are most definitely mine. There are lots of different kinds of ribbon and burlap that would be so pretty for this. Depending on the season and the theme, different colors would make totally different statements.
Once the wreath is complete, it is absolutely gorgeous and ready to hang up.
Aromatherapy is a great way to improve the experience in a room or a home. Different herbs and flowers have all kinds of healing properties that work through our sense of smell. An option to turn this DIY Rosemary Wreath into an aromatherapy wreath is to add cranberries, oranges and cinnamon sticks. These are three ingredients that I had handy from the stovetop potpourri we made a few days ago. Use hot glue to add them.
