Here’s another throw back from my herbal gift shop days. We used to make a lot of wreaths with dried flowers and herbs. Sometimes we would used herbs and spices to hang and display in the kitchen. This DIY spice wreath is pretty easy to make and you can have a lot of fun creating it.
Easy DIY Spice Wreath
Start with an old picture frame. This will give stability to the wreath and make it easy to hang. Note that the finished wreath will be slightly larger than the frame.
Next take your cardboard and cut it to a size slightly larger than the picture frame.
Then cut out the middle and paint it black. This way if there are any holes in the finished look they will fade into the shadows.
Here’s the fun part. Starting at one corner, start hot gluing your herbs and spices to the cardboard. You can use any design that you like. I used a block design, but you could also create more of a striped design or increase/decrease the amount of herbs and spices.
Other ideas for herbs and spices are: dried sage, lavender, star anise, and nuts.
In case you were wondering, yes, it is fragrant. The scent may not last very long but the beauty should last a long time.
