easy craft ideas with minimal money spent. (Don't we all just love the sound of that?)
I went outside, and cut a bunch of rosemary from my garden. (You'll probably want to let it dry out, upside down first, because I didn't, and then it all started to wilt on me, so I had to pull a bunch out and let it dry and then put it back in. Just so you know.) Then I placed a little block of floral foam (keeping it dry) into a small bucket. I had some raffia covered floral wires (found at a craft store, near the floral department) so I braided three of them together loosely. Then I simply bent the whole braid into an arc and poked the ends into the floral foam block.
twisted lengths of rosemary around the braided wire until it was mostly covered. Then I just poked extra pieces into gaps in the braid here and there, until it was full. If you needed to, you could use small pieces of green floral wire to secure them in place as well.
Now my home smells like an Italian kitchen. Or what I presume an Italian kitchen might smell like.
