"Wrapping vases. Long before recycling became such an important part of our daily lives, I always thought the wrapping of leaves around a simple glass jar made something magical out of the bin! All you need is some double sided tape and some leaves. At this time of the year, you can literally pick the leaves off the ground and place them around an old jam jar. My favourite leaves to use from my garden are laurel, rhododendron, large ivy leaves, sycamore or oak. Herbs are also perfect, and all year around I make rosemary pots from my long rosemary hedge that is the length of my herb patch."
