Get Crafty! DIY Rosemary Wreath

Good morning, friends! We’re tickled to share this project with you from our West Elm Spring Social event we hosted last night in Seattle. We not only got to play with paper flowers {so gorgeous and delicate!}, but we were challenged to put our own spin on the new delicious paper confections. We whipped up three projects intended to be extra lovely and cheery, but with ease. When dreaming up finishing touches we’re big into appeasing all of the senses, and playing off of a garden motif, we trimmed fresh rosemary from the kitchen garden and went to town creating little rosemary wreaths that can adorn a table top and provide a perfect subtle dose of herb scents.

Step 4. take an 8″ piece of ribbon and a piece of twine and bring the two ends through the center of the wreath. Then pull them through the loop and secure in a loose knot. Voila – you’ve got yourself a sweet wreath!rosemary wreath DIY
