Simple DIY Magnolia Wreath : Fall Wreath Blog Hop

We’ve got a giant Magnolia tree in our backyard, which is just perfect for seasonal decorating. It’s evergreen. The leaves are lush and deep in color. The blooms in summer are incredible. I can’t pass up incorporating its natural beauty in our home. The leaves graced our Thanksgiving table last year and our mantel two Christmases ago. A DIY Magnolia Wreath has been a project that I wanted to tackle, and this fall seemed like the perfect opportunity.

The base is a simple grapevine wreath that I’ve had on hand for years. I typically use it as-is, which makes for simple, natural decor {see it here on our mantel for summer}; but decided to dress it up a bit for fall.

DIY Magnolia Wreath : Instructions

Grab your supplies and clip off a handful of Magnolia Tree leaves. Find a round item that is smaller than your fabric flower. I chose a mason jar lid because I have plenty on hand, but it could be any small, flat item.

Next, hot glue the clipped Magnolia leaves onto the jar lid which creates a “spray” of leaves in a sunburst shape. Make sure that they are glued on securely, then add the fabric flower on top. It will cover all the stems and the jar lid. I added a button to the center of the fabric flower for additional contrast and detail.

Flip the Magnolia Leaves over, so that you can see the back of the jar lid. Glue on a couple of popsicle sticks. Use the popsicle sticks and the lid to wrap floral wire around and attach the entire thing to the grapevine wreath.

That’s it! Simple as that. Hang it and enjoy a quick, natural wreath for your front door.


FALL WREATH IDEAS

This sweet little wreath has been a welcome fall update at the entrance to our home. I smile each time I see it. Plus, I love that the leaves change in color and the edges curl a bit, as the wreath dries. I understand that sometimes that is seen as a negative to a natural wreath; but to me, it’s part of the beauty of enjoying some touches of nature in the home.
