I know, it seems a bit early to be thinking about Christmas, but honestly, it will be here before we know it. I can’t believe it’s already even November! We love this month and definitely don’t want to overshadow Thanksgiving, but we know a lot of you out there like to get an early start on some Christmas planning, so we thought we’d share a Christmas craft/DIY or recipe one day a week this month.
While browsing on Pinterest one day, I spotted these very cute Rosemary Wreath Place Cards from Spoon Fork Bacon. I was smitten, and being a lover of tiny things, thought making something similar into a mini wreath garland would be a nice addition to our Christmas decor. I love how the garland looks and it was so easy to do. (And cheap – I didn’t spend a penny on this, I used all supplies I had, and a bush from my yard!).
What you need:
- pine branches (or something similar – mine were from a pine-ish looking bush in our yard)
- floral wire
- jute twine / string
How to do it:
- Decide how big you want your wreaths to be (form a circle with your branch and figure out what you like), cut branches to that length.
- Form the branch into a circle, and secure the ends together by wrapping with floral wire.
- Wrap some twine around the floral wire and tie into a bow.
- Repeat with remaining branches.
- Slide the wreaths onto a long strand of twine or string.
Happy early Christmas planning! Manda
