How to Make a Bay Leaf Wreath

Save

Bay leaves are commonly used to season stews and soups, but can also be used in wreaths to add a fresh, herbal aroma to your home. Although you can find herbal wreaths at many kitchen stores, it can be difficult to locate a bay leaf wreath. One solution is to make your own using fresh bay leaf branches and materials that can be found at a craft supply store.

Things You'll Need

  • Bay leaf branches
  • Florist tape
  • 8-inch foam ring
  • Florist wire
  • Gather together four to five bay leaf branches, and arrange them so that the leaves are all facing the same way.

  • Tape the bare ends of the branches together with florist tape.

  • Repeat this process until you have about 15 bundles of bay leaves.

  • Place one of the bay leaf bundles against one side of a florist foam ring so that the leaves are facing to the left.

  • Wrap florist wire around the taped area and the foam to secure the bundles to the ring.

  • Place a second bundle 2 inches from the first, arranging the bundle so that the leaves are facing to the left again.

  • Wrap the florist wire the in same manner as before.

  • Continue adding on bundles and wrapping the wire until the entire ring is filled.

  • Bend the end of the wire into a curve, and twist the end onto itself to complete a loop. Use the loop to hang up the bay leaf wreath.
