Eucalyptus has become really trendy over the last few years—especially as home decor. We’ve made a few different DIY variations before using crepe paper and vellum paper. But today’s project involves making a baby blue eucalyptus out of felt. Baby blue eucalyptus is a popular filler in bouquets and arrangements, but we also think it looks lovely on its own. We’ll be using this eucalyptus in an upcoming project next week, so make sure to keep an eye out for that!
Cutting all these small leaves makes this a perfect project for the Cricut Maker. If you don’t have one, you can cut all these leaves by hand. It’s just a lot easier with a cutting machine! You’ll find both the SVG file and printable PDF below—along with printable instructions.
For your leaves, you’ll want to go with a great quality felt. We have a few different places we go to for felt, but this time we went with Benzie Design’s Blue Spruce wool blend felt.
If you love the look of eucalyptus, but get bummed out when you have toss it out, try making this felt version! This DIY project is also perfect for pet owners since fresh eucalyptus is toxic to cats and dogs.
