I planted lots of french lavender last year, and today I got a chance to make this wreath:


This Youtube tutorial helped me a lot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2MFFQVRtAg

I barely had enough lavender to make one, so I filled in some gaps with succulent cuttings. I attached those with florist wire.

I still smell of lavender-- a bit nauseating after working with it for over an hour, but the finished wreath made it all worth while.

I love lavender. I don't know if I have enough to try this yet.  I bet it makes your house smell gorgeous.
