With an older doily, rattan ring, and some time, you can have a nice wreath.

Approximate Time: 60 to 90 minutes




  1. I didn't want to string the ribbon through the doily, so I just did the ribbon first, gluing to the back every 4-5 wraps. I used two colors that worked with my doily.

  2. Then, I hot glued the doily to the back of the wreath.

  3. Flip over and choose a position to attach the big ribbon.

  4. I made mine to look like I tied it, as this kind of ribbon is hard to work with when you are actually trying to make a bow. You just make a loop and tie with some crochet thread or yarn. Glue that to the bottom of the ring.

  5. Embellish with the things you want to put on it, using the glue gun. If you wanted to do this with wrapped ripped fabric, buttons would work really well. I used some DT fall glitter leaves, buttons, and such to make it just like I wanted it to be. You can do the same.

  6. Hang with ribbon through the rattan rings.

This can be custom made to your specs. So don't think if you don't have what I had that you can't make this wreath. See what you have, find the rest cheaply, and have fun!

Easy to make eucalyptus wreaths to decorate your home or use as a gift. Make your own for a fraction of what one would cost you to purchase.

Turn your existing decorations into seasonal decor. I purchased a bag of these fake leaves from Dollar Tree for just $1!


I added the leaves around the wreath and instantly vibes of autumn/fall.

I always check the thrift stores for vine or Styrofoam wreath bases. Add any sort of decoration you have on hand.


I gather dried, wild flowers, pine cones, dried seed pods, and dried stalks from plants.

The dry leaves left on irises and day lilies make great "ties" for holding things on autumn wreaths and they are so natural, they blend in too.

I have a large group of lavender plants and want to make a wreath. I have never done one and could use any suggestions on how to go about starting. Thanks.

easy instructions at that site I have made them in this fashion using pencil thick flexible branches and then covering them with wet new paper this helps to keep flowers alive. I make them for wrapped sweets at christmas.
