Make your own seeded eucalyptus garland with these easy, step-by-step directions. It’s the perfect fall eucalyptus centerpiece for your table.
My philosophy about centerpieces, like most decor, is that simple is best. My favorite method begins with layering, followed by adding natural elements and a pop or two of color. Most of the time I use trays to layer but for this centerpiece I began with table runners and added a DIY seeded eucalyptus garland.
Eucalyptus Garland Tutorial
I first showed you some seeded eucalyptus when I nestled some velvet pumpkins in my silver urns. I had just enough left over to make a eucalyptus garland for my dining room table. Here’s the very quick tutorial!

Eucalyptus Garland: Supplies Needed
- Piece of 1/4 inch twine/rope that measures the length of your table.
- Florist wire cut into 5 inch pieces.
- Fresh or dried eucalyptus branches.
Seeded Eucalyptus Garland Steps
On a flat surface or table, lay out the piece of rope lengthwise. Gather 2 or 3 branches of seeded eucalyptus and attach to one end of the rope with a piece of florist wire.
Continue adding bunches of seeded eucalyptus to the rope, making sure to cover the wires. Trim the ends of the rope if needed. Lay the garland on your table. Fill in any bare spots with more eucalyptus.
As soon as the garland landed on my table I just knew it was perfect. The eucalyptus had dried to a sort of silvery shade of green and even though it wasn’t super full, it was full enough. I nestled in four orange velvet pumpkins and four birch candles.
From start to finish, this DIY seeded eucalyptus garland centerpiece took less than an hour…and that included ironing both table runners! You can use this method to make any kind of garland. Some ideas are:
- preserved or fresh boxwood
- cedar pine branches
- dried hydrangeas
