MotherStucker Made: Eucalyptus Wreath

imageMotherStucker Materials:
-Plant trimmings (eucalyptus for today, try greenery that you have available!)
-Wreath frame (available at any craft store, or use an old wreath)
-Yard trimmers (for the heavy duty branches)
-Ribbon or decoration of your choice

Saturday afternoon, a neighbor was trimming her eucalyptus bush. The eucalyptus trimmings looked gorgeous and smelled even better, so I decided to put them to use. My holiday wreaths of artificial pine are an eyesore at best. Time to up cycle and free cycle!

imageI started but removing the dusty (fake) pine from it’s metal wreath backing. Left with a wreath skeleton, I trimmed the eucalyptus pieces down to a manageable size (approx. 2.5 feet) and began to weave the trimmings through the wreath frame. Once the entire wreath circle was entwined with eucalyptus, I simply added more where needed. Popped on some ribbon and that’s a wrap!

Eucalyptus P.S: Before cocktail hour later that Saturday, I decided to tweet my project success complete with picture (not as cute as the doggy Delores picture above!). DAVID BROMSTAD -THE COLORSPLASH HGTV DESIGNER GUY – favorited my Eucalyptus tweet and then tweeted to me, “@christystucker Amaze!”. So yes, I can die happy now 😉 XOXO, MotherStuckerimage

  1. Molley – lets swap? A fresh eucalyptus wreath for a baby kangaroo? My kids would flip if a kangaroo was under the tree on Christmas Morning!!! 😉
