Rosemary Heart Wreath

Will you have hearts everywhere, my Dearest asked. Yes! I certainly will! Rosemary Heart Wreath 3

I have two very large, very old rosemary bushes at the front walk of our home. This year, they’re blooming profusely. I knew I wanted to make something with the blossom-filled stems. Then my husband told me that due to the winds, one of the rosemary trunks split. So, I examined the bush, found it was still alive and we repaired the split with an old barn hinge dug into the ground and a wire hanger wrapped around the base of the split trunk. There are uses for wire hangers after all!

I picked several stems from that bush and had the idea that I’d shape another wire hanger into a heart shape and attach these stems to the heart form – this would be a perfect, fragrant wreath for my French Country kitchen.

I hung the wreath on one of the cup hooks below the suspended shelf in the kitchen. I love the look next to the French Wine Bottle holder.

The sweet small blue blossoms on the Rosemary stems go nicely with the colors in the kitchen.

I can’t wait till Dearest comes home to see this wreath…working on plans for the next one!

  1. What a lovely little wreath! I do enjoy the scent of rosemary, too. I’m sure it smells wonderful in your kitchen.

  2. I don’t think I ever knew that it had those tiny blue flowers. How gorgeous! And I love your pretty wreath!

  3. I thought I had some good size rosemary — but nothing with something we could refer to as a trunk! And they very seldom bloom in these parts — but how lovely when they do! Are those just two stems?

    • I am going to take some pictures of the garden tomorrow and I’ll show you all how big they are. They’re next to the rose bush I fondly call our Volkswagon – They’re about 3 to 4ft high and 3 ft wide each. I used about 6 stems two on each bottom sides and two on each top side.
      I appreciate you stopping by!

  4. I love this! Your rosemary is so lush and pretty. I can’t wait to try this!! The heart wreath absolutely beautiful and Frenchie!!

  5. Kathy, wish you’d bottle up some your smarts and talent send it to me. You create and can do so many different things. I have been trying to figure out how to do Favicon but it is beyond me. Just trying to keep up with the times.

  6. Kathy…what a sweet wreath! I have yet to see mine bloom, however I am definitely gonna give mine a much needed trim and make a few for myself…Thanks for the inspiration…now following on G+ and HT, too!

  7. Wow! I live in NW Wisconsin, and we have feet of snow on the ground… all winter long. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to have any plant look even alive outside right now, let alone a beautiful flowering one… I love the simple wreath heart you made with your rosemary. lovely, and so cheery to us up here with real winter.

  8. I just love your wreath and I am sure it smells wonderful! Thank you for the inspiration! I am going to go peek out the window and see if my rosemary has those pretty little blooms on it yet!
    Best Wishes and Blessings,
    Amanda

  9. What a beautiful wreath! I love rosemary but I never knew it had little flowers like that!

  10. Your heart wreath is so pretty! And you’re so lucky to have rosemary bushes in bloom! It’s snowing quite heavily right now where I’m at. Ugh! Anyway, I think your wreath is just adorable.

  11. I love your rosemary heart, so simple and so beautiful.

  12. That is beautiful! I have a huge rosemary plant, but not a bush. I’ve never seen rosemary blossoms before. I wonder if my plant will flower at some point. I’ve had it since last spring, and use it in cooking. Now you’ve got me thinking about taking some of those long fronds and making a lovely wreath!

  13. Very pretty, Kathy. It does look nice in your kitchen. We have nothing blooming here and we have a blizzard/snow storm on the way for the weekend. No blooms for us until April. Thanks for sharing at my HOME.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  14. Well, if your hearts are as cute as these, why would you not have hearts everywhere???!! Thank you so much for linking ‘m up and sharing them with us. I love Rosemary and it keeps the evil spirits out, so yet another reason to have these wreath all over the place and particularly at the front door!
