DIY: Festive Rosemary Holiday Decorations

Our rosemary plant has been growing like crazy lately! Aside from putting it in literally everything Thanksgiving dish I made this year, I realized I needed to think of other things to do with it. You know what that means – crafting!

To make the following festive rosemary wreaths all you’ll need is a few rosemary springs, baker’s twine, and scissors.

Take a 7-8 inch rosemary spring and 4-5 inch strand of baker’s twine,

form a circle shape, overlap the ends, and tie together securely with the baker’s twine (wrapping a few times around before knotting). If you feel like you need more structure to the circle you can use florist’s wire.

You can use another 3-4 inch piece of baker’s twine to tie a bow around the top to cover the knot.

Now, as for how to use them? Here are my favorite ways:

1) As a cute nametag for a holiday meal place setting.

2) To top a mason jar full of goodies or holiday treats.
