It is such a simple little project, yet it looks gorgeous and smells wonderful too. For any of you not in possession of an old ring,you can just use some wire, like I did when I made Lavender wreath. Fortunately, or unfortunately for us, our old barrel planter broke yesterday, so I now am the proud owner of three metal rings and a handle (you never know when you might need to get a handle on things?!). So what better way to use it than to make some wreaths.
So here goes:
1. If you don't have a metal ring, then make some out of wire by shaping it into the shape of ring and getting at least four-five rounds, so the ring-base is solid (you can refer to the picture a the bottom of this post.
2. Cut some mint when it is in flower and make sure to cut them quite long.
3. Wind the mint around the ring, weaving it under and over the ring and keep doing it until you have a substantial amount of mint on the ring and you are happy with the fullness of your wreath.
4. Now use your string to secure it in at least two to three places.
Once you have done this your wreath should look something like this and then you are ready to hang it.
Then I made another for inside the house as they smell so wonderful.
Happy Monday to all you lovely people.
