ROSEMARY WREATH

The rosemary in my garden is still looking great so I thought I’d cut some to make a wreath.  It’s very simple to do and requires just a few tools.  Together with the rosemary, you’ll need clippers, a wire base and some green floral wire.  So the first thing to do is make a loop with the floral wire on the frame.  Then place one stem on the frame and start wrapping with the wire onto the frame.  Keep adding stems as you continue to wrap, overlapping the previous stem and try to hide the wire under the small rosemary leaves.  Cut some smaller pieces from the tops of stems to fill in any gaps.  Hold the wreath up and see what you think.  You can add a ribbon, some berries or rosehips, but I think it looks great just as it is.  And it smells wonderful!
