My mint plant has taken over the garden, plus I need a pretty wreath for the holiday season.  Let's put this aggressive plant to good use.

Step 1: Get everything together

You will need:

-old cardboard big enough to cut your wreath frame out of, the size is up to you
-duct tape, any color
-scissors
-mint
-dried goldenrod, it grows in my front yard
-any other interesting greenery of your choice

Thank you all very much, it smelled wonderful and still does now that it's dried up...I just tossed it into the compost bin yesterday. @tbcross, it lasted a couple of days so it's best for a special occasion etc, although it may last longer if spritzed with water with a water bottle.

Oh! If only I had checked ibles before ripping mint out of the yard today. (Maybe I still have enough lemon balm to do it.) Your wreath is beautiful!
