Inspired to create a wreath that is also a mini garden? A twist on the living wreath and vertical garden craze, this project requires only ordinary ingredients and takes less than an hour to make. Hang it, grow it, and harvest your very own {garden} wreath.

 

Needs:

Chicken Wire
Wire Cutter
Plants (we chose edible ones here) Strawberry and Thyme in 4″ containers
Sphagnum Moss (moistened)

 

1) Using a wire cutter slice off a strip of chicken wire about 8″ wide. Fold and roll the wire into a tube. Then bend into a loop (or wreath).

2) Stuff the holes in the chicken wire with your (moistened) moss.

3) Unpot your plants. We chose blooming and almost fruiting strawberries and two varieties of time. Squeeze and shake off the extra soil.

4) Open up the wire slits – and place your plants inside. Squeeze the wires shut again to hold it together. Work around the wreath form and keep planting big plants through the slits and smaller plants thru the holes.
