Annnnndd it’s FRIDAY!

Can I get a hell yeah?!?!  Hell Yeah!

Did you catch what Bay baked in my Instagram stories this morning?  She was asked to bring dessert to the Truitt’s house tonight and she straight up killed it.  It’s a little more formal than the occasion, but I love her creativity.

I’ve gotten lots of messages asking me to share more details.  And don’t trip chocolate chip….you know I will!

You guys, the SUN is trying so hard to come out today.  Which makes it kinda feel like beer drinking weather.  You know what I mean?  That spring weather that makes you wanna ditch work and get hammer-timed.

After all the rain lately, I think we’re all craving some vitamin D!

Anyway, switching things up today.  I just wasn’t feelin the normal {friday 5} thing.

Yes, it’s another DIY that involves eucalyptus.  You know my love for eucalyptus is REAL!  This aromatic greenery is typically referred to as a “filler” Which to me kinda means, the extra stuff.  Cheap.  Not the real thing.

But, let’s keep it real….I would choose eucalyptus over any flower.  Wellll, maybe till Spring.  Then I may add tulips.  Only white ones though.  Ha.

You’ll find some kind of eucalyptus variety around my house year round.  And once it dries, it’s even better.

This simple DIY took me about 20 minutes.  Closer to 15ish…then an extra 5 to perfect it.

You really only need 3 things.  Unless you’re like me.  Then you’ll need all 4!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • grapevine wreath (I used an 18″) Joann’s // Michael’s // Amazon
  • fresh silver dollar eucalyptus ($2.99/ bunch at Trader Joe’s.  I used 3 bunches)
  • scissors
  • glass of wine

Here’s what you do:

Separate all the eucalyptus.

Using scissors, cut off single pieces.

Tuck eucalyptus stem in the grapevine wreath.

Repeat with all the eucalyptus.

Rotate the wreath as you go.

The finished product.

Once you hang it on the wall, be prepared to make some adjustments.

You’ll want to tuck pieces or maybe even remove and relocate some pieces.  I did this for about 5 minutes till I has happy 🙂

Once this wreath dries, it get’s even better!!
