A few years back, my sweet and loving parents purchased a small lavender plant at a flea market for me. When I got it home, we carefully picked out the perfect place to plant it. One year later, we decided that spot wasn’t as perfect as we thought, so we move it. We transplanted it again, that fall. This year, it proved it’s hardiness and finally bloomed. Our backyard smells amazing. I decided to make a lavender wreath to bring some of my favorite scents into our home.
Recently, I purchased this grapevine wreath at a garage sale for $0.25. Sweet!
I started by sticking the lavender stems in between the grapevine. I continued around the entire circle.
Finally, I hung it on my front door. Some may say that decision was based solely on laziness, because there was an existing hook, but I like to think it is in a place visible to the whole wide world.
I love the way the grape vine and lavender look together, so I didn’t make it very thick. Plus, now there is still plenty left in my backyard to keep it smelling awesome.
What natural items do you use in wreaths?

Love this wreath, especially since you used real lavender. I would love to have lavender planted in the yard. One of my favorite scents!
What a beautiful wreath!! I can just image the fresh scent every time as you open the door. :) I recently visited a lavender farm (I actually blogged about it here: http://www.sincerelycarmen.com/2014/06/sunshine-lavender-farm.html )
