Herb Wreath

Sometimes I just ignore the weeds and work,

and busy myself with a little fun project.

The Thyme that creeps around the edges of the garden is thick, lush and just starting to flower.

A good time to give it a little trim.

This is beneficial for the Thyme and gives me the opportunity to make a little Herb Wreath to hang in the kitchen

I used some old wire and jute string.

Gather little bundles of Thyme and tie with a piece of jute.

Tie the bundles onto the wire and knot tightly in the back of the wreath.

Tuck each new bundle into the previous bundle and continue around the wreath.

Tuck the Thyme in tightly, when it dries it will shrink down and you do not want the wire frame to show.

You can enjoy the wreath right away, snipping fresh Thyme for cooking.

If you would like to dry it, just hang it in a dry, cool location.

Maybe the garden gate needs a little wreath.

Enjoy!
Enjoy!

  1. I love this idea! And may I say a beautiful blog too, I love your photos. I’m looking to create a herb garden on our allotment this year and it will be great to be able to store the herbs in our kitchen at home like this. So decorative and pretty 😀
