Eucalyptus Wreath – Easy Thrift Store Wreath Makeover

This year, I’m definitely into making wreaths! I had a different idea in mind for a eucalyptus wreath, but couldn’t resist trying to do a thrift store wreath makeover when I spotted some old wreaths at Goodwill.

I wanted this to be a super easy way to make a eucalyptus wreath. So I made sure to find wreaths that had grapevine forms. This way, I could just stick pieces of eucalyptus in, and hopefully not have to use any floral wire or hot glue. This is essentially how I make my garlands for my stairs and mantel. Start with a base, then just stick pieces in. The easy, lazy way – haha!

The great thing about using eucalyptus is that the wreaths can be used for Christmas decor, and long after too! Dried eucalyptus is beautiful year round! These are actually partly dried eucalyptus wreaths in these photos. I had to wait a few days to be able to photograph them – we’ve had some dreary, rainy days around here lately. I love how they look! And they smell amazing!
