5 ideas for scented decorations

03 November 2016

Bring nature indoors during winter with evergreens, like eucalyptus. Here, Lilly in Austria shows us how to use this long-lasting, air-freshening plant to decorate your home.

Hang from your walls and ceilings

Experiment with different hanging techniques, such as framed leaves and mobile decorations. ‘I enjoy looking for new elements I can combine with the eucalyptus, like attaching dried sprigs to an embroidery hoop.’

Mix different scents

Lilly transforms groups of scented candles into a decoration, with a simple garland of cinnamon sticks and eucalyptus. Just give the eucalyptus stems a shake to release their fresh, soothing scent.

Make an everlasting

Decoration Dried eucalyptus doesn’t lose its colour, so why take it down? ‘I made a wreath for the kitchen from dried eucalyptus last winter and I’ve left it there ever since.’

Create a sense of bedroom

Calm Plants and greenery have some great air-purifying and relaxing benefits, so they’re an ideal addition to the bedroom. ‘I’ve hung eucalyptus along a thin wire above the bed to bring calmness and serenity to our room.’

‘I love the colour and smell of eucalyptus, and how versatile it is – fresh or dried’
