DIY: Rosemary Topiaries


Project By: Victoria Hudgins

Photos By: Erin Holland

Rosemary wreath topiaries are a great way to say thank you to your guests. The herb pots will bring a most lovely scent and look to your reception tables and guests will love to take home a little something beautiful and tasty to remember your day with.
  • One Mini Terracotta Pot per Guest
  • Bunches of Organic Rosemary
  • Floral Wire
  • Craft Sticks
  • Dirt
  • Scissors
Step One:
Collect organic rosemary (grown from your garden or purchased from a florist).
Step Two:
Using the floral wire, start by making a small wreath shape with a straight stem, proportional to the size of the pots.
Step Three:
Beginning at the bottom of the stem, connect rosemary to the floral wire with small ties of thread. Be sure to cut off any loose ends at the end of each tie. The ties should blend in right under the branches.
Step Three (Cont).
Continue all the way around your frame: gathering, bunching, and tying the rosemary.

Step Four:
Fill the pot with soil and slide the completed rosemary wreath into the center. Wet the soil a bit to secure the stem.
Step Five:
Adorn small garden sticks (craft sticks) with a thank you and place one in each of the favors.
*Note: This project uses cut rosemary. It will stay fresh for about three days when spritzed with water. Alternatively, you can make the favors longer in advance and present dried rosemary. If you'd like them fresh- they should be made within three days of the event.
