Beautiful + Simple Herb Holiday Wreath

I’ve been so excited to decorate this year for the holidays, but you know what?? I can’t decide on an aesthetic!! I’m struggling to take a direction on whether I do a modern, minimal look, classic Christmas or soft and elegant. I was itching to do at least something, so I made these super simple wreaths.
