How about I share the steps to make an easy DIY wreath with you? Who loves the idea of a basic wreath?
Additionally this simple wreath has garlands, flower pots and no glue! How fun is this for the front door?
Make an Easy DIY Eucalyptus Wreath Using Garland
Step 1: Buy the Greenery
First off, I did find this two-pack eucalyptus for $14.99 on Amazon. Additionally, if you have prime, it ships free. Now you may be wondering how good of a product can this be for the price.
I highly recommend this garland. Before ordering this, I was bit skeptical. However, needing faux weather safe eucalyptus because this will be exposed to the elements, I gave this a shot.
And let me tell you I love it! I am a fake flower snob. I’m not a big fan, therefore, when I find fake that I like I’ll shout it from the rooftop. If you need such a product, get it!!

Attaching the Wreath Forms Together with Zip Ties
Step 2: Wrapping the Eucalyptus
After receiving the eucalyptus garland, I put a plan together to make an easy DIY eucalyptus wreath .
Before I begin a new project, I always check my craft closet. I was also especially happy to find a 30″ and 18″ grapevine wreath blanks.
- 30″ grapevine wreath
- 18″ grapevine wreath
- 2 packs of double pack of fake eucalyptus garland
- clear zip ties
- florist wire 22 gauge
- flowerpots 3 the larger size and 6 smaller sizes
- jute or twine

Step 3: Connecting the Forms Together
Let’s begin with connecting the wreaths together. Zip ties work especially well for this step. You can find these here at Amazon. I am using the zip ties because I want the wreaths for this easy DIY project to be stable. Also, I think the zip ties allowed for a snugger fit.
Connecting the wreaths together also makes this eucalyptus wreath grand and will show up beautifully on the front door.
Here Begin Adding the Larger Flowerpots Tying Them with Jute
Step 4: Adding the Bigger Pots
Next, I begin adding the flowerpots. Incidentally, I share how to age flowerpots using lime, you will enoy this post and they are so easy to make!
For this fast wreath project, I add white craft paint to my lime aged pots by brushing on the paint. Then I immediately rub the paint with a rag. This is done to allow the texture to be seen on the pots from adding the lime. Additionally this protects the pots from the elements.
After rubbing the paint, I add a bit of green to this simple seasonal wreath for a moss look. This adds another layer of texture to the flowerpots and adds an aged appearance.
Connecting the Containers to the Summer Craft Project
Step 5: Continuing to Add the Containers
Next came time to add the flowerpots to the wreath. Incidentally, you will see I also add mini pots to the greenery to complete the look.
Also, layering the smaller pots adds another element of texture and depth.
First , we begin adding the larger pots using juter. Here you will want to angel the pot and tie tightly. Incidentally, three pots works great when making this DIY wreath. Forming a triangle is best.
Now Begin Adding Mini Pots to the Project
Step 6: Putting the Tiny Pots on This Craft
Next step, we add the small terracotta pots using the same method again. Here, we use two small clay pots. This works well for the odd number theory regularly used in decorating.
Also, the best part of this simple eucalyptus wreath no glue. This also gives me the option to reuse these pieces for another project.
Now, Let’s Begin Cutting and Adding the Garland to the Grapevine Wreath
Step 7: Cut the Garland and Florist Wire
Here, I cut my first garland in four pieces. We then begin adding a section at a time. During this process we use florist wire to hold the garland in place. Simply, find an opening on the wreath and slide your wire through the grapevine round and twist tightly.
Continue this process with the additional garland until you cover the wreath to your liking.
Also, take a step back to look at the wreath after the first garland. This is particularly important to make sure the wreath is symmetrical. Continue until the greenery on the wreath is full enough. By the way, I did keep the grapevine bare here and there. I like the texture of the grapevine.
Hanging the DIY Eucalyptus Wreath
Step 8: Get this Project Ready to Hang
Lastly, slip a larger piece of florists’ wire through the back of the grapevine twisting tightly for hanging. Because this is 22 gauge it is strong enough so no worries.
By the way, this wreath can easily work for the fall. Add fake pumpkins to the greens or fall foliage to the pots. You can add flowers to the wreath seasonally as well.
I hope you enjoyed make an easy DIY eucalyptus wreath and make one for your home.
