Get creative with native greenery. All you need is some basic tools.

Step 1: Grab your greenery. We chose seeded eucalyptus, but you really can go for anything you like. Try flower markets or wholesale florists for the best deal. You’ll also need scissors, thick wire, twine and a nice ribbon to decorate.

Step 2: Create a circle shape with your wire (or you can cheat by buying a twig form, this way you will use less branches). Select gums with long stems and start feeding them around the circle. Secure with twine as you go.

Step 3: Repeat the process a couple of times, securing the ends with twine.

Step 4: Decorate with a colourful ribbon at the end.

Step 5: You’ve got a wonderful wreath! Enjoy the fruits of your labour and the gum’s native scent.
