So often we think of herbs as vegetable garden plants, living among tomatoes and peppers. This project elevates the stature of the plants by creating a wreath that takes advantage of their beautiful foliage colors and textures. Adorn a wall, door, gate or tabletop with this ring of green. It creates an attractive and fragrant accent to your garden home.

This project calls for a living wreath form. This is a coated wire wreath that has a bottom and a top. In some cases the top will have hooks for snapping it to the bottom, while other types require wiring the two halves together. You can find these forms online or at floral supply stores.
Depending on the size of wreath you find, adjust the number of pots of herbs you’ll need accordingly. Also go with the herbs you can find. The idea is to select a variety of colors, leaf size and shapes to make the wreath interesting.
