If you have some leftover herbs from the garden or a Thanksgiving feast, why not reuse them as natural and compostable additions to your holiday decor?



Rena Chandsa, who blogs about her latest culinary obsessions at The Cheese Thief, repurposed rosemary from her garden to create these adorable and truly unique mini wreaths in less than 15 minutes.

Earth911 Tip: To make sure the end result is compostable, sew buttons and other decorations on your wreath instead of using a glue gun. After the holidays, simply remove the buttons and compost the rest.
