How to decorate a Christmas vase with the Eucalyptus Wreath

Posted in All Floristry and Crafts, Christmas, on

This looks great in the middle of a table or on a windowsill for some classy Christmas style. Using faux flowers and foliage, you can use this display year after year.

You will need:

How to get the look:

  1. Spread out a set of battery Wreath Lights in the body of the vase and turn it on. I like using our Glass Jar Vase, as the lights shine gently through the bronze-effect lustre.
  2. Find a plate to fit on top of the vase, a little wider than the vase's neck. This then gives you a ledge on which you can balance the wreath.
  3. Rest the Eucalptus Wreath on the plate and thread through faux flowers – like the Hellebore Sprays I've chosen here. You can also add long-lasting druit, nutes or pine cones, nestled in or wired on to the wreath.
  4. Finally, place a whopper candle in the centre of the wreath, sitting on the plate. If you're worried this might topple over, attach it with a couple of little nuggets of Florist's Tac.
  5. Once the evening is over, carefully lift off the plate from the top of the vase to turn off the wreath lights.
