EEK! THERE ISN'T A WREATH ON OUR FRONT DOOR!



The tree is up, the candles are out, the presents are slowly appearing beneath the tree. Wake up this morning and realise – oh bother. There isn't a wreath on our front door! What to do!?

Not to worry, there's plenty of rosemary in the herb garden and this quick tutorial will set things right before the weekend is through...

It's surprisingly easy and quick to put together and you could make them any size – a nice big dense one for the front door and / or lots of little ones for table decorations, place settings, wall hangings etc. Plus, they smell delicious!

How to:

1. What you will need
Rosemary
A wire frame
Rubber elastic bands
Green wire
A wire cutter

2. Take about 3 rosemary sprigs and tie them together at the bottom using the elastic rubber band. You’ll need quite a few of these bundles, I used about 10 + for my wreath.

3. Using the wire, fasten the bottom part of your bundle to the loop. Your next bundle should then cover the previous bundle’s wire and elastic with its top.

4. Keep doing this until your frame is completely covered.

  1. Such a great idea. I dressed my table with pinecones, gum leaves and gum nuts last year - I love bringing the outdoors in!! Merry Christmas x
