Rosemary Wreath


I'm having trouble getting into the Christmas spirit this year. I think it's the 70-degree, no moisture weather we have been having. (sigh) Although, we do have a wintery storm heading our way for tomorrow.
I saw this idea on A Healthy Life For Me last week and since we have an entire rosemary hedge all along the front of the porch, I figured I could manage it!
I used an 8-inch grapevine wreath and cut sprigs of rosemary and just stuck them in between the vines of the wreath overlapping them slightly as I went along, no wire required. I added a red bow and called it good! It would also make a nice candle ring for a pillar candle. Quick, easy, festive, cheap and, as an added bonus, it smells really good! Making this and the Preserved Snowman did help lift my spirits a bit! :)

I love rosemary! I bet that smells heavenly! That's a great idea - as a ring for a pillar candle. We all seem to be having trouble getting in the mood this year. I am hoping it will hit me soon...

So pretty! I'm jealous of your rosemary hedge. :)

I really like this. We have tons of rosemary. We're getting lots of rain, right now. I won't be sorry if it goes your way. We go to SD for Bob's infusions tomorrow and I'd sure like to walk the Zoo!

Alica said...

Like!! And I'll bet it smells good, too!

That is so pretty. I love the smell of rosemary. Unfortunately I can't keep the stuff alive. I think it gets root bound too quickly and I don't get it repotted soon enough.

Ive never seen a wreath done like that before. A neat idea, well done Candy, it looks swell.

What a great smell this must be!

Kateri said...

Okay, I am seriously jealous! I wish I could grow rosemary like that! Your rosemary even has blooms on it!

Michelle said...

I have 6 rosemary plants, this is a great way to use them.

I'm with ya--I'm not really in the Christmas spirit just yet...but I'm working on it. A little snow would help, you know??

I LOVE that wreath! I imagine it smells heavenly.

I love your rosemary wreath. I use rosemary for healing.... Next year, I hope mine is big enough to make a wreath.

Man I wish I had that much!!! I love the smell and it'g great in all kinds of dishes. It was 55 here for Thanksgiving, but has finally settled into COLD. Snow expected on and on the next week! A little anyway...

Farmgirl Susan said...

I love it! And I'm so envious of all your beautiful rosemary. I have three pathetic little pots in the kitchen because I've killed all the rosemary outside, lol. xo

Lisa Lynn said...

Love it! I can almost smell the Rosemary :)

I would love to have you share this on Wildcrafting Wednesday next week!

I really love this... I have a huge rosemary bush still growing down in the garden from summer 2011. If I make one of these I'm gonna link to you post :)

Definitely hard to get in the spirit without winter type weather! But Rosemary! What a lovely idea and smells heavenly!
