This is my favorite decorative project that I’ve done in a long time and if you want to learn how to make a DIY eucalyptus wreath that is perfect for spring & summer, follow along with this tutorial. It is less than $20 and so simple to make.
I think I enjoyed it so much because it was a chance to be more creative than just cutting and drilling screws for a project. You are able to play around with it and customize the wreath to fit the style of your home, and for so cheap! I think the eucalyptus is so beautiful and timeless. It’s great for spring, summer, and even for autumn!
You can use any greenery or flowers you would like if eucalyptus isn’t your style. The most important part of the wreath is the grapevine since that is what the stems tuck into.

Materials You Will Need
I went to a few different stores for my supplies but if that means I pay less, I’m all for it. The cheapest I found the grapevine wreath was for $5 at Hobby Lobby. The size I went with was 14”. I think their faux greenery is overpriced so I went to Joanne Fabrics for the stems and my total for all the greenery was just under $13. Make sure you go when they are having a sale so they are half off!
If you don’t have wire cutters or don’t want to purchase them just for this project, you can use scissors, it will just be more difficult to cut through the stem where the wire is. We purchased our wire cutters when we built our chicken coop and had to cut a ton of chicken wire. They have come in handy more than I thought.
Steps For How To Make A DIY Eucalyptus Wreath
Using your wire cutters to separate all the greenery from the main stems & set aside.
Starting with the leaf bush, tuck the stem into the grapevine wreath. Hot glue where necessary to secure it into place. Work your way around the whole wreath.
Moving onto the eucalyptus, tuck the stems in really tight in between the grapevine and hot glue where necessary to secure it. I found it helpful to hot glue the leaves to the grapevine because they are pliable instead of trying to hold the stems in place until it dried completely. Work your way around the whole wreath making sure the eucalyptus is evenly spread out as you go.
It’s as simple as that and I think it is so beautiful! They would be a great housewarming gift as well. Other than how cheap they are to make, the great thing about them is you can use them year after year. When you store them away for the winter make sure the wreath isn’t being squished because the grapevine is breakable.
