A Living Herb Wreath Project



This wreath is so easy to make! It is a fun do it yourself project that would make a great gift also, especially with Valentine, Easter, and Mother's Day approaching.

If you can't find the forms, click here to order one from Amazon.

For herbs I picked low growing ones so it will be easy to maintain the wreath shape:
I purchased 2 of each in a carpet or crawling variety! 
Golden, Variegated Sage
English Thyme
Rosemary (the crawling type)
Chocolate Chip Ajuga- (not really an herb, but it is edible. Added for color)


Step 1:
Fill the form with potting soil, and pack it down slightly.
Step 2:
Put backing on and latch- the form I used and suggested came with the liner, and precut holes.
Step 3:
Flip the wreath form over.
Step 4:
Remove the herbs one by one from their pot, and slightly trim the roots.




Step 5:
Push fingers into the pre-cut holes and move dirt around to dig a hole for the herb to fit into.
Step 6: 
Gently place herbs into this hole, and carefully arrange.
Step 7:
Continue to repeat these steps, arranging the herbs around the form. I tried to place herbs that matched across from each other. Then I placed the rosemary in the center hole at the bottom.


Step 8:
These forms will dry out daily, so place your wreath in a location that will be easy to water!
This form has a hook made onto the backing to help hang it, but I prefer using a nice piece of rope. It adds a rustic look, and makes it easier to move for watering!
Don't worry if it looks a little sparse to begin with, in a couple of weeks it will fill in nicely.
