Equipment

  • Rosemary sprigs
  • Printed Name Tags (or strips of paper to hand write names)
  • Scissors
  • Floral Wire
  • Ribbon or Twine
  • Pen or pencil that is smooth sided
  • Hot Glue Gun (optional)

Ingredients
  

  • 6 Rosemary Sprigs
  • 6 Name tag strips- 3.75" x .5" each Printed from this template - or your own.
  • Scissors
  • Floral Wire
  • Ribbon or twine
  • Pen or pencil that has smooth sides
  • Hot glue gun optional

Instructions
 

  • Print my name tag template. You can either hand write in the names, or add them in on the computer. Cut out each name tag. If you are making your own, cut strips of paper to be approximately 3.75" x .5".
  • Using a pencil, small dowel, or a pen that has smooth sides. Curl the edges of the name tags in opposite directions.
  • Cut the floral wire into 6 lengths approximately 3 inches each.
  • Trim rosemary springs into lengths between 7 and 9 inches. First trim the top off, then the bottom. When you trim the top, you want to try and get down to the thicker stalk part of the sprig, that way when you wire it, it will hold much better.
  • Remove rosemary leaves at the top and bottom of the sprig to reveal a half inch or a quarter in of stick. This is where you will wind the floral wire.
  • Working from the thickest part of the sprig to the thinner, gently flex the sprig to make it more pliable.
  • Gently make a circle by crossing the two ends of the rosemary sprig. Wind the pre cut floral wire around the ends.
  • Tie a ribbon or twine, or hot glue a ribbon to the rosemary wreath to cover the floral wire.
  • Tuck the name tags within the rosemary leaves. Enjoy your rosemary wreaths!

Notes

Depending on the freshness of your rosemary - these will last up to 5 days in the refrigerator. Store in a single layer under damn paper towels to keep the leaves looking nice. Replace the damp paper towels once a day.
