A Thanksgiving Sage Wreath





If you're looking for a fitting way to decorate your home or need a hostess gift this Thanksgiving, you might want to try making a simple sage wreath.  Since many cooks use sage to season their turkey and stuffing, it makes perfect sense to incorporate this herb wreath into the celebration!  

To make a sage wreath you will need:

A large quantity of sage (10-12 big bunches)
Sturdy wire (formed into a circle) to serve as your frame
Floral wire
Wire cutters

Trim off the thick ends of your sage as well as any brown, spotted leaves.  Using your floral wire, attach one bunch of sage at a time, working your way around your wire frame until it is full.  Easy, no?

I'll be back soon with more Thanksgiving fun!
(and yes, I'm using sage again...  Can you sense a theme here?)

  2. Where did you get your sage? I love this idea, but don't know where to look.
