I planned my girlfriends bridal shower and she liked eucalyptus and wild flowers so I got the centerpieces to match the theme. Afterwards, I let them dry out and had them out on my ottoman.
How I Made a Fall Wreath With Dried Flowers
Eucalyptus dries very well and still smells great! I also had some dried lavender, the flowers themselves I just chucked since these don't hold up well. (All of the flowers were from Trader Joes, they have great selections)
I got a grape vine wreath and decided to reuse the dried flowers YET AGAIN!
I broke the pieces into smaller branches and weaved them into the frame. I had a lot of different types of eucalyptus which added a lot of dimension.
I had some of these small Styrofoam pumpkins from other décor in the past, so I stuck pipe cleaners in the back.
Then I weaved the pipe cleaners through the wreath frame as well.
What says Fall more then eucalyptus and pumpkins? (I'm a fan of pumpkin season, but then again who isn't?)
Every time you open the door there is a nice aroma of the eucalyptus oil as well.
