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.

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
Rosemary (the crawling type)
Chocolate Chip Ajuga- (not really an herb, but it is edible. Added for color)
Fill the form with potting soil, and pack it down slightly.
Put backing on and latch- the form I used and suggested came with the liner, and precut holes.
Flip the wreath form over.
Remove the herbs one by one from their pot, and slightly trim the roots.
Push fingers into the pre-cut holes and move dirt around to dig a hole for the herb to fit into.
Gently place herbs into this hole, and carefully arrange.
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.
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.
