You will need:

  • Cotton embroidery floss
  • A wooden rod or dowel
  • Thicker, heavier cord (thin rope)
  • Scissors
  • Eucalyptus leaves

Steps to follow:

1. Cut the eucalyptus limbs either into even lengths or according to how you would like them to hang.

2. Begin tying basic loop knots around the tops of the eucalyptus with the cotton floss. Leave a decent amount of thread to attach to the dowel

3. Once all of your eucalyptus branches are threaded, attach to the dowel

4. Then attach your cord to either side of the dowel for hanging and nail it to the wall.

2. Eucalyptus garland
