Let’s make an easy DIY artificial eucalyptus flowerpot wreath. It’s perfect for the front door!
However, it will work well as a fall wreath with a few additions.
Are you ready? I hope you are as thrilled as I am with this fun idea.
How about I share the steps to make an easy DIY wreath with you? Who loves the idea of a spring wreath that works for the summer season?
The best thing, this has garlands, flower pots, and no glue! How fun is this?
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 a bit skeptical. However, needing faux weather-safe eucalyptus because this will be exposed to the natural 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 a fake that I like I’ll shout it from the rooftop. This is a high quality product, so get it!!

Attach The Wreath Frame with the Zip Ties
Step 2: Connecting the Forms Together
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 30″ and 18″ grapevine wreath blanks.
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.
- 30″ grapevine wreath
- 18″ grapevine wreath
- 2 packs of a 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
- wire cutters
Begin Adding the Larger Flowerpots Tying Them with Jute
Step 3: Adding the Bigger Pots
Next, I begin adding the flowerpots. Incidentally, I share how to age flower pots using lime, you will enjoy 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 wreath for a moss look. This adds another layer of texture to the flowerpots and adds an aged appearance.
Begin Adding Mini Pots to the Flower Pot Wreath
Step 4: Putting the Tiny Pots on This Wreath
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 is 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 5: Cut the Garland and Florist Wire
Here, I cut my first garland into 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.
The best part, this wreath can easily work for the fall. Add fake pumpkins to the greens or different shades of fall foliage to the pots. You can add floral stems to the wreath seasonally as well.
