Houzz TV: Make a Fragrant Wreath for Your Front Door
Wreaths can be beautiful and welcoming while also smelling wonderful. In this episode of Houzz TV, garden designer Baylor Chapman explains how to make a fragrant wreath for your front door. Grab your materials and start creating.
Beautiful! Like the idea of adding fragrance to it as well!
If one doesn't want to spend all the money going and buying supplies for this wreath, it is easy to shop around your neighborhood, yard and/or parks for supplies. Then one also doesn't need a form or wire for wreath making, one can weave the wreath together, using thin flexible branches for a frame and then weaving in evergreens. They smell just as wonderful, your neighbors will go gaga and all it costs you is your time! I do this almost every year. This year in our new place, they are so popular that next year I will more then likely be selling them!
Really lovely. Where can I find the fresh herbs in my cold climate? Any ideas?
I love this. My kind of wreath, looks great & smells wonderful. Thanks
I really like this video. Good tips on things that I usually forget to do, like tucking the last bunch in under the first bunch so the wire doesn't show. Thanks!
Thanks everyone for the great comments! And thanks too for your photo Jason. I *love* seeing photos of handmade wreaths!
Great video! Thanks for sharing!
We use damp sphagnum moss to nest inside the wreath frame (wrapped in plastic first) before wiring the bundles. The moss will keep your wreath fresh and green for weeks. You just need to spritz with water every few days to keep it moist underneath. Some plants might root into the moss. A bonus if you are into propagating your plants.
