We're sad we didn't think of this earlier this summer when we had fresh herbs coming out of our ears, but even still we love the idea of hanging something up that is used and not just adornment. What could be better than holiday decorations that you don't have to pack up and store each year? Click through for DIY thoughts and ordering info in case getting crafty isn't your thing.

We found this wreath over at OrganicStyle.com. It's pricepoint is pushing $60 although it claims to be enough herbs for an entire year.

Our kitchen must be busier than theirs since we think this amount of herbs would last us a few months (or less) this holiday season instead of an entire year. That being said, we still think it's a great thing to have handy or to give as a gift, be it housewarming, holidays or hostess in nature.

If you are looking to skip the spending all you would need to start is a wire wreath form found at any local craft or hobby store. Simply group your herbs in bunches and tie together at the bottom with some jute, twine, or florists wire. Next, tie them onto the form, layering each bunch on top of the last as you work your way around.
