As a photographer, I am creating all the time, and yet I sometimes need a chance to take a break and create something for myself. It’s a great way for me to get out of my head and find a way to feel inspired apart from photography. There are a ton of great tutorials online for doing DIY Eucalyptus wreaths, so I won’t write out extremely detailed instructions, but I thought I’d show you what I made. It’s so dang easy, and all I used was an old grapevine wreath, and some Trader Joe’s Eucalyptus I picked up this morning.
I love the smell of eucalyptus, and with it getting colder here in Indiana, I’m looking for ways to keep our home fresh feeling. Eucalyptus has been known to benefit one’s health, both physically and emotionally, and it can leave you feeling uplifted and warm. I don’t know about you, but I’ll take any and all of that I can get. :)
So all I did was cut fresh sprigs, and tuck them into the wreath until I liked the way it looked. If I can do this sort of project, you can too. I threw on some favorite music, got down on the floor, and let the inspiration fly. It probably took me less than 10 minutes start to finish which is a win in my book! I highly encourage everyone to take time and get out of their routine and use their hands to create something meaningful every now and again. I’m so glad I got a chance to breathe and make something myself.
