“Dollar Store” Eucalyptus Wreath

Hi there!  Today, I’m sharing something a little different.  My front door usually has a new wreath for each season and/or holiday reflecting colors and textures for each time of the year.  Do you enjoy changing out your door decor often?  Before I started blogging over three years ago, I was really religious about it.  Now that I spend more time fixing up our rental and decorating on in the inside, I’ve left my winter wreath out all Spring.  Summer begins next week and I have to say, I still LOVE that wreath and think it’s works well for all seasons!  The winter tutorial was a contributor post for Over the Big Moon last December but I’m sharing the fun DIY with you.diy-eucalyptus-wreath

Here’s what you need:eucalyptus wreath supplies

(apart from the feathers, you should be able to find these items at your local dollar store or yard!)

grapevine wreath form

florist wire

5 eucalyptus stems

gold ball picks (and a black sharpie/pen)



Step one:

To make the gold ball picks more dramtatic, draw black dots with a sharpie all over the top halves.  They will add a fun punch of color to the wreath!


Step two:

Clip off the stems about one inch below the eucalyptus leaves. Place and arrange on wreath by placing all of the bunches in the same direction evenly spaced out. stems-winter-wreath

Step three:

Tuck the stem into the grapevine wreath. Secure long branches of leaves with florist wire. Leave some out for an organic shape. wire-stem-winter-wreath

Step four:

This is probably the first time I haven’t used hot glue on a wreath y’all! Wrap a piece of wire around the bottom of a pinecone and attach to the top of the wreath. Create a cluster of 3-5 (depending on the size).pine-cone-winter-wreath

Step five:

Space out your feathers and stick them into the wreath form and eucalyptus. Secure with wire where needed. Place and secure a few spotted gold picks. Add a bow at the top near the pinecones and you’re finished!

I’m so pleased with the way she turned out. It might be my favorite wreath yet! I love the pinwheel shape of the leaves and feathers.
