I have been seeing so many gorgeous faux trees online and everything costs a fortune! For the most part I’ve seen faux olive trees, but just recently fell in love with faux eucalyptus trees.

I thought it would be fun and easy to try and make my own and I love how it turned out!

Best faux eucalyptus!

Copy this project with these faux eucalyptus stems that Amazon reviewers swear by!

I managed to get this gorgeous branch from a friend. You could use any branch and any size! I picked up some floral foam from Michaels and stuck the branch into the foam, then secured with the rocks from outside.

I then picked up about 10 eucalyptus stems from Ikea.

I then plucked all the leaves off the stems to begin glueing onto the branch.

Using my hot glue gun, I applied some glue to the leaf, and stuck it onto the branch. The branch I was working with had little shoots sticking out on each branch so it was easy to glue and stick the leaf onto each of those.

To complete the look, I then topped off the rocks in the planter with some dried moss and couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!

    Have you ever seen the ball on the Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree (eucalyptus deglupta)..? I think your tree would look really neat if you could do the bark too...check it out....

    When I buy fresh eucalyptus the leaves fall off after a few months but still have a wonderful smell. I save them and put them into a bowl. Now I think I will glue them to a branch like yours! real branch, real leaves, real smell!
