Fresh Rosemary Christmas Tree Garland
- Fresh Rosemary Sprigs
- Paper Doilys
- small scrapbooking letters
- Glue Gun
- Small twig peices
Step 1 – Cut your sprigs of rosemary in to 5 different lenghts. Repeat until you have 3 trees.
Step 2 – Cut 3 strands of jute 30cm long. Staring at the top tie a knot in the center of the piece of rosemary. Then leave a gap and tie of the next peice. Repeat until you have finished all 3 trees. Make sure that the distance between each branch is about the same.
Step 3 – Grab your glue gun. Add small glue dots to the where you have tied the jute and glue down the trees to the paper doily.
Step 4 – Make 3 small jute bows and glue to the top of your trees. Using the letter’s J – O – Y glue them to the bows.
Step 5 – Making sure that all of your twigs are around the same length, glue them to the based of the trees.
Step 6 – Cut a length of jute to the size that you want the garland to be. Then glue to the back of each doily. Make sure that there is equal space between each doily.
And there you have a Fresh Rosemary Garland!
