It's beautiful, dries out easily, a perfect addition for crafts and smells AMAZING! These are just some of the reasons I can't get enough eucalyptus in my home (during the winter months especially). The variations in greens in the different varieties brings beautiful color into the winter home.
There are many different varieties of eucalyptus, but the ones I use most and that I find are more readily available are silver dollar, seeded, true blue and baby blue.
Below I'm showing you 4 ways I style these beautiful stems, but get creative with it in any way you'd like!
Hang it to dry + display
This is probably my favorite way to style eucalyptus. Tie it at the base with some twine and hang it on a mirror, over your bed or by a window. No need to dry it out before hanging—let it dry while on display!
Dry and arrange
You can hang eucalyptus upside down out of direct sunlight for about 2 weeks to dry, but it's really not necessary. If you leave it in a vase with no water it will dry on it's own beautifully. When it's dried out, arrange in a vase or toss it in organically.
A fresh, mixed arrangement
Mixing 2 or 3 varieties of eucalyptus is SO beautiful! If you love big, wild bouquets, this is for you!
Use in crafts, vignettes or tablescapes
Eucalyptus pairs so beautifully with other natural winter elements such as birch logs or wood rounds.
