diy eucalyptus floral garland (+ video tutorial!)



Last weekend was the annual ‘lose your mind at the flower market, make 47 wreaths and eat loads of food‘ day! The obligatory 47 wreaths were indeed made (more on that later), and banana split was eaten. After everyone left my place I decided to put together a festive garland with my floral leftovers.

A garland makes a great alternative to a wreath when you need something to fill a bigger wall space, and if you can’t hang things you can use it on a sideboard or table. It is festive but not super-Christmassy, y’know? In fact I could see myself making these throughout the seasons. This garland is still hanging in my lounge room a week later, and although it has mostly dried it still looks good.

I also decided to make my first ever video tutorial, which I am slightly nervous about… Please watch it and tell me what you think. Is it too long/short/weird? It was fun to put together so I expect I’ll do a few more in the future. This first try  has highlighted a lot of things I would change for next time. Mainly to get a tall tripod so that I don’t have to balance the camera on a stool which is also balanced on a chair!
