DIY Fresh Sage Wreath
A few things to remember- first the sage will shrink as it dries so use a lot, make it very full. A major change that i would make if i did this project again- i had all the leaves going in the same direction clockwise around the base, i would change it so that the leaves started at the top going separate directions and then meet at the bottom with all the leaves going in a downward direction. I would change this because my wreath kind of looked funny after a few days because the side of the wreath that was working against gravity (with the leaves going upward) ended up falling backward and looking not so great.
So that being said its a pretty simple project, the first step is to pick your sage leaves off the branches they are on. Then take groups of leaves, probably 5-6 large, and using the floral pins that are U shaped tack them down to the wreath base. Now just keep pinning until you’ve filled up your base. I bought a small bag of floral pins and had plenty. To finish it off I just used a thick roll of grosgrain ribbon to hang it with. It smells great, will be useful and looks pretty on my pantry door. Enjoy!
