The Sweet Smell of Rosemary


Don't you just love 
Rosemary?


It's beautiful all summer long...

It's sad to see it freeze, so before it does.... 
I'm cutting it down!

With a few simple supplies...


I'm turning that sweet smelling summer plant....

into some sweet smelling Mini Wreaths!


Branches of Rosemary are wired around a 
thick brown wrapped wire, secured with floral wire, 
and tied with a bow!


A beautiful gift that takes only minutes to make!


It will make your home (and your hands) 
smell delicious!


And the best part is that the plant 
comes back next Spring!
Thanks Martha!

  5. These are so pretty, Susan! I'd like to get a few little wreaths myself. You are so lucky that you have a plant you can cut from. I'll bet they do smell really good.
