Pro Tip: A eucalyptus wreath made with fresh leaves will only last two to three weeks, while dried eucalyptus will last years. So we better plan a design that dries well!
Fresh eucalyptus smells divine, and the drying process makes the leaves lose their fragrance. If you’re going for a strong scent and you don’t mind enjoying your wreath for a short time, use fresh leaves. If you need your wreath to last longer, go for dried or artificial leaves.
You can even dab eucalyptus essential oil onto the dried leaves to enjoy both the fresh scent and the long-lasting design!
I’ll take you through the simple steps of making a eucalyptus wreath.
If you’re short on time or not particularly crafty but still want to own or gift a wreath, I’ve also included several options you can purchase below!

How to Make a Eucalyptus Wreath
One of the best things about making a eucalyptus wreath with fresh leaves is that you can enjoy their scent and appearance for a few weeks, and it still looks good (although becomes less fragrant) after the leaves dry out. I recommend starting by making a fresh wreath and seeing how you like the look and smell of the fresh vs. dried leaves as they naturally dry over time. You can also substitute artificial leaves for fresh/dried ones.
This wreath is highly customizable. When you’re done with these steps, you will have a finished eucalyptus wreath that’s ready to hang, or you can add any decorations you’d like.
I suggest getting creative and adding some holiday ornaments, lights, additional foliage, flowers, etc.
Supplies you will need:
- Fresh eucalyptus stems (you can get them at Trader Joe’s for about $3 per bunch, and a basic wreath takes approximately 5 bunches to make. You can find eucalyptus in the floral sections of most grocery stores, or use artificial eucalyptus stems from craft stores.)
- 14” grapevine wreath base (if you prefer a larger size, you may need more eucalyptus stems.)
- Floral wire
- Wire cutters
- Optional: any customizations you’d like to add (pinecones, berries, dried flowers, glitterspray, lights, etc.)
Step by step process for DIY Eucalyptus wreath
Step 1: Separate your eucalyptus bunches into smaller branches. Use your scissors to cut the branches into smaller pieces, about 6” in length.
Step 2: Laying the wreath flat, push the stems of the branch pieces into the grapevine base. Add stems next to each other with the bottoms pointing in the same direction, slightly overlapping the pieces.
The grapevine wreath base should hold the stems in place.
Step 3: Once you have filled the circle of the wreath with stems, go back and add more pieces where any gaps may be noticeable. You want a full, polished look, with the stems flowing in a neat circle.
Step 4: Pick up your wreath and see if any pieces fall off or droop. Use wire cutters to cut pieces of floral wire, and use them to attach any fallen pieces to the grapevine base. You can tuck the leaves around the wire so the wire does not show.
Step 5: Add any decorative pieces, if you’d like. Spray the leaves with glitter, use wire pieces to attach pine cones or berries, or hang ornaments from the grapevine base.
Step 6: Create a loop from floral wire and attach it to the back of your wreath at the top. You will use this loop to hang the wreath from your wall or door.

Why make eucalyptus wreaths?
Besides being attractive and appropriate for all seasons, the eucalyptus plant has a powerful meaning.
- The word “eucalyptus” comes from the Greek words “eu” and “kalyptos,” which translates to “well covered.”
- The plant owes this name to its flower buds protected by the lavish, fragrant leaves adored by crafters and plant enthusiasts (and, famously, koalas).
- Hanging a eucalyptus wreath on your door infuses your home with the magic of eucalyptus, helping to keep inhabitants and visitors safe.
- The lore of eucalyptus makes these wreaths the perfect housewarming, holiday, baby shower, or wedding gift.
Now you have plenty of eucalyptus wreath ideas to make or buy the perfect decoration for your home. Thanks to the mythology of their protective powers, these wreaths are also perfect gifts for any holiday or occasion.
Put one in your shopping cart or whip up a DIY wreath, and enjoy the soothing scent and cleansing powers of eucalyptus in your home.
