I love to give homemade gifts for Christmas and one of my favourites is my herbal wreath. It is very decorative but also useful as the herbs I use dry beautifully whilst hanging on the front door over the festive season and then can be taken inside and used in the kitchen for months otherwards.
So I have documented the process I use, in a pictorial, so you can make this if you wish.
The combination of herbs and flowers is totally up to you, in this wreath I have used rosemary as the base plant and then sage, bay and thyme as they are herbs I use regularlly. The sea holly is purely decorative and is a cut flower that dries well and its colour compliements the colour of the rosemary foliage.
These are lots of fun to make and the aroma from the herbs is wonderful and quite relaxing so why not make one this festive season, either as a gift or for your own front door.
Happy wreath making Kathy
