Astar's Craft: Herb Wreaths
My herb garden produced a bounty of lovely herbs this year which I will now incorporate into wreaths.
These will not only look fantastic hanging on the walls in my kitchen, but will also slowly dry off for me to use throughout the year.
These also make for great gifts for friends who love to cook.
Things to gather –
- Wreath (You can either use a natural willow wreath or one made from wire or use long lengths of rosemary to create a circle in a size to suit)
- Selection of herbs (bay, rosemary, thyme, mint, lemon verbena etc.)
- Jute or string (for binding herbs into little posies & fixing to wreath)
- Snips (scissors)
If using a natural willow or wire wreath – make little posies out of each variety of herbs, bind with string then fix around wreath.
If not, make a wreath shape out of long lengths of rosemary, binding with string to hold all in place. Once you have desired thickness of wreath, use the same method as above to make posies of each herb, then fix to wreath.
Use a piece of string to make a hanger. Knock a nail into the wall and hang wreath. Snip herbs from wreath as needed.
