Every holiday season I love to make wreathes, each time trying something new. This was my first attempt at making one out of only Eucalyptus.
For the wreath form I used a smaller 10 ” wire frame and 3 bunches of Seeded Eucalyptus from the grocery store.
It took me a few days until I started making the wreath and in that time some of the leaves had started to dry out even though I had kept the stems in water. I started with the dried pieces and made small bundles in the same way that I made the boxwood wreath last year.
These leaves worked the best. When there were so many seeded pieces it was difficult to work with.
Here is the wreath one week later, it dried out within 2 days of making it. Hopefully it will last the whole winter and won’t need to be constantly cleaned up like cedar.
This post has been getting a lot of traffic which makes me think that people would like to see more examples of Eucalyptus wreaths so I’ve added a new post with others I’ve made.

Does it smell as good as it looks? 😉
How much should I budget for the materials cost?
How much time should I allow myself to complete the wreath?
Hello, I’d say about an hour to make and try a grocery store like Trader Joe’s if you’re in the US for material – that’s what will make a difference in your budget. I spent $25 for 3 bunches. I had tried a florist but they were charging $12 per stem so I looked to the grocery store.
