Today I wanted to share our quick and simple method for making eucalyptus hair wreaths for your next gathering. Laura and I whipped up about six of these in an hour or two. They are fun to wear, look great in party photos and (the best part!) smell amazing!
Needed: Seeded eucalyptus (I got mine at Trader Joe's), floral tape (both the sticky kind and the kind you use to wrap- pictured here), floral wire and scissors.
Twist a long piece of wire into a circle that comfortably fits your head. Remember, they're easier to make smaller later than to make bigger, so be a little generous with the size.
Use the sticky tape to attach individual clippings of eucalyptus all the way around the crown. Repeat until it is full.
Use the other floral tape to wrap the wire. It takes a little patience to maneuver around all the clippings, but it's worth it because this step gives it a more polished, finished look.
We had a little extra help from Dolly. She's very crafty.
Ta-da! Aren't they pretty?!!
I'll definitely make these for a future party! These are the kinds of detail that make a celebration feel thoughtful and special.
