I took a wire coat hanger, some side cutters, a pair of pliers and some florist wire and my big bunch of rosemary and a few lavender flowers.
Then I cut the hook part of the hanger off and formed a circle.
Next I sorted my rosemary into long, medium and short lengths. An this is where I got to playing and forgot to take photos of the process. I arranged the branches of rosemary on the circle and used the small florist wire to attach them to the hanger. I just kept adding some and wiring it down. Then I bunched the lavender flowers and some foliage and put it on the bottom and up the sides a bit. And then I took some wire edged ribbon and made a bow and put it at the bottom of the wreath. I also made a tab at the top to hang it with. And this is what my creation turned out like.
You can't see the lavender very well as I am not the best photographer in the world. (Hmmm, maybe I should buy that book I saw called Digital photography for dummies, or some such title like it.)
This is a close up of the bow and the lavender. It should dry nicely and make a dried wreath. If it doesn't dry nicely and all the leaves fall off the twigs, it will look like a Christmas tree that was kept too long and all the needles fell off it. It sure smells pretty right now!
So there was my crafty fun thing I did today. Yeah, I know I should have been pickling peppers today instead. But sometimes you have to do something creative and just for fun right? : )
