DIY Olive Leaf Wreath

Given our hot weather in the lead up to Christmas, our options in Australia for wreaths are fairly limited: artificial, native or dried. Anything fresh is likely to wilt or be cooked within a very short period. I suspect this olive leaf wreath will be the same, but it’s a good option if you’re making a wreath just a few days out from Christmas. I just love the silvery green colour of olive leaves ❤️

This wreath would also make a beautiful table centrepiece.

This was my first attempt at a wreath, but it was surprisingly easy.


Needed: 

  • Large metal wire wreath Spotlight Stores $8.50 • Olive leaves/branches (ours were from our neighbours. Blue gum or other leafy foliage would also look beautiful)
  • 50pk Ornament Hooks (Green) Target Australia $2 OR thin gauge florist wire (eg Vivaldi Florist Wire from Spotlight Stores 30 gauge $7.50)
  • Pliers
  • Scissors
