Sometimes being a little lazy can totally pay off. I had a bunch of eucalyptus from Christmas that had been sat on my windowsill drying out. I kept meaning to clean it up but the leaves were dropping off everywhere. I knew it was going to be one of those tasks you think takes 30 seconds but actually creates so much more mess and leaves get everywhere and your pet rabbit eats all the leaves and then poisons itself leading to an emergency visit to the vets! Who has the time?!
But eventually so many leaves had dropped off that I sucked it up and started to clean it up (rabbit safely locked in her pen and out of harms way) and as I did I noticed how much they look like little olive green hearts. So with Valentine’s on my mind I whipped up this quick and easy garland for anyone who might also have a bunch of eucalyptus sitting in the corner, just waiting for a little love.
Eucalyptus leaves | Cotton thread | Sharp needle
Thread a long piece of cotton thread onto your needle. Sew a running stitch from the bottom of the leaf to the top along the middle.
Repeat this step for all of the leaves leaving a small gap between each. Now you can hang anywhere to add some leafy romance!
