For a couple of years now one of the first things I do when we get back in town is trim up my herbs, especially the rosemary. Usually it is overgrown and quite out of shape. After keeping some in vases around the house and giving a bit away I toss the rest. Always kicking myself for not making better use of it. Well this year I did it, my first wreath and I have to tell you it is quite easy.
Straw or metal wreath (any size)
Fresh rosemary sprigs (cut to 8 to 10 inches)
Bunch 5 sprigs of rosemary together and wrap them tightly with floral wire. (see below) Sprigs should be facing the same direction.
With floral wire wrap bunches one at a time around wreath base. Overlap pieces as this will cover the wired end of the bunch before it. Continue until entire wreath is covered with rosemary.
You can leave the wreath plain or for added color add flowers, berries, or herbs. As my wreath starts drying I will add other herbs to cover the base, like sage and thyme. This will keep the wreath looking full. I thought a burlap bow or ribbon to finish would look really nice. Keep out of the sun and away from moisture to help retain shape. Have fun!
Cheri Savory Spoon
Mysavoryspoon was first started in 2010 as a way to journal recipes that I had collected from cookbooks, magazines, family and friends. Most everything was savory, using legumes and whole grains. Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.
