How to Make a Eucalyptus Wreath

Today I am sharing how to make a eucalyptus wreath.  This is such a cheap easy project plus it smells great!

How to make a eucalyptus wreath? Let me show you how easy it is to make this wreath.  You only need 2 supplies and 2 tools and I bet you already have all of them at home.

Wreath Supplies

  • Eucalyptus Branches (we have a tree in our neighborhood)
  • Wire from the local craft store

Tools

  • Wire Cutters
  • Scissors

So that is it! Just 2 items.

First cut off the branches that you want to use.  I looked for full leafy branches.  After they were cut I set all of my branches aside for a few days. I don’t know if this is necessary, but it allowed them to dry out.  In that drying process they curled up a bit.  As a result this helped me to form my wreath base.

I started my wreath by finding all of the slightly curved branches.  Arrange them in a way where the curve can form a circle.  After that decide how large you want you wreath to be by laying out all of the branches.

Start wrapping the wire around the branches to connect them together and form a circle.  Once your branches and leaves have formed a solid base, you can start to add more branches so your wreath will be nice and full.  Most importantly try to hide the wire and make sure there are leaves covering the wire. 

When I was happy with how my wreath looked I used a piece of wire to make a hook.  I doubled the wire and wrapped it around one of the branches.

As you can see in this photo my hands did get dirty from the tree sap.  If I did this project again I would suggest wearing plastic gloves.

Recap How to Make a Eucalyptus Wreath

  1. First pick your branches
  2. Second let the branches dry out (if you have time)
  3. Third arrange the branches to form a base
  4. Fourth start wiring your branches together
  5. Fifth add more if needed
  6. Sixth make a wire hook

At first I thought I would need a wreath form but then I realized it was super easy to use the branches to form my wreath base.  In conclusion this project took about 30 minutes from start to finish and it is my cheapest project to date.
