Valentine herb wreath ~

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.

Thank you for visiting


  1. That is pretty. I never knew anyone that would do that. I do now. You.

    Happy Valentines back. I was so hoping I would have got a Valentine baby 50 years back my daughter.

    Feb 18. Dang it.

  2. You make it seem so simple that I believe I could make one. Your header is exquisite. Sometimes a photo makes me wish to 'walk in' and your header does just that.

  3. ...very simple, very easy, and very beautiful! I think I will have to make one!

  4. This is very lovely! You always make pretty things and I'm sure it smells divine!

  8. What special leaded glass doors to have from your father. Your wreath is just lovely. I'm sure it smells heavenly.

  9. That is so sweet and perfect here in SoCal cause there is always something growing well in the garden this time of year.
