Magnolia leaves are notorious for their bright green color, even in the seemingly dismal months of winter. So it's no wonder they are a top pick for any wreath maker, especially around the holidays. The big glossy leaves are easy to work with and even the under side of the leaves is a beautiful velvety brown that is equally stunning. Magnolia leaves are also typically free from pests (and pest damage), so they're consistent and healthy. And since magnolia trees can grow to be enormously tall, if you have one in your yard (or in a friend's yard) then you have a plethora of leaves to work with!
Let's get down to the supplies you'll need to create your own magnolia wreath. As with all projects, try to use what you have. For example, if you don't have a grapevine wreath, but you have a different type, try that and see how it works! Now, onto the supplies.
1 Grapevine wreath (any size you choose, but larger magnolia leaves look better on a larger wreath)
Magnolia leaves (snagged from a nearby tree or purchased)
Hot Glue Gun (low temp)
Hot Glue sticks
