I have seen some examples of pretty little valentine shaped herb wreaths on Pinterest and I thought it would be fun to make one to put in the kitchen for Valentines Day.
For the greenery I used rosemary and lavender from the garden, perfect as they both dry well and smell wonderful, but there are lots of other choices...boxwood, lambs ears, sage or thyme for example.
Now to work...
I cut some stems, made a little heart shape wreath form out of construction wire and fastened the herbs onto the form with very fine craft wire. For a little embellishment I added some red fabric roses and a red ribbon to hang the wreath from.
Very simple and very easy.
I hung it on the door of the corner cabinet in my kitchen. This is where I display some of my smaller crystal and silver pieces. My father made the leaded glass door for me.
Now when I walk into the kitchen I notice the slight fragrance of the herbs.
Just a subtle and nice way to celebrate Valentines Day.
Wishing you lots of love and romance in your life all the days of the year.
