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 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!

I am plagued with direct sunlight on my front door, so am trying to make wreaths that can withstand the destruction of direct sun. This one I attached is my latest wreath, designed for a second entrance without the sun light.

Please let us know what kind of elements she used other than the herbs. Also I would love more pictures of the in-process stages.

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.
