Aromatic Garland

Herbal and floral garlands, also referred to as "swags", are a variation on the wreath theme. Spring and summer bring us a plethora of plant materials to make bringing a bit of nature into the home a breeze.

My monthly contribution to the Lillyella blog is super simple do it yourself "Herbal Garland" project that you can make with local flora, your garden or farmers market finds. Next time I am going to make a long one for one of our living room windows, bulking up the plant material like this photo above featured on Fragrantica. Using clothes pins is a fun idea, especially since you can get some great vintage or cute little tiny ones.
