How to Make a Greenery Wreath

Spring is here and it's time to decorate for the season. Using greenery for a wreath looks fresh and perfect for the spring season. This simple wreath can be assembled in about 15 minutes.

When making a greenery wreath, you have quite a few options for the greenery. You can choose plastic, dried, or fresh greenery. There is quite a selection of plastic and dried when you visit craft stores or look online. Fresh greenery can be bought at a local florist. For this wreath, we used dried eucalyptus leaves.

I included links so you can buy the supplies online if you want to. I personally like to head over to the local thrift store and look for a wreath base. Most of the time I can find one for about $1 or at most $3.

Directions

add eucalyptus leaves to twig wreath

Start by tucking the stem of the eucalyptus leaf branch into the wreath base. Use a small piece of the floral wire to secure the bundle of leaves to the wreath where the leaves begin to curve around the starburst.

Take a second stem and tuck it into the wreath a bit down from the first stem, so they overlap. Make sure that your leaves are positioned in the same direction. Continue to add stems and attach them around the wreath.

When you have covered the wreath base with your eucalyptus leaves it's time to see how the wreath looks. Hold the wreath up to the wall to see how the leaves flow, if there are any bare patches, or if runaway leaves need to be tamed by a bit more floral wire.  Add sprigs of more leaves as desired.

The hardest part of this wreath was the section on the left side toward the bottom. It was a bit unruly and had a mind of its own. With a bit of tucking here and there it settled down a bit.

Within 15 minutes this greenery wreath was finished and ready to hang on the wall. It smelled wonderful and fresh too since it was made of dried eucalyptus leaves. This wreath will be nice all season long. and into the summer if you like.

If plain green isn't your style, you can add a bit of color by adding a few sprigs of flowers (fresh, dried, or plastic) to the wreath.

    1. I ended up thinking the same thing Sarah. When I was first planning it, I wanted to add sprigs of flowers, but liked the green as it was.
