Magnolia Wreath

                                      Seeing all the different wreaths out there in blogland

                                               I decided to make one myself.

I had magnolia leaves leftover from Christmas decorations last year and wasn't sure what I would use

them for then a light bulb went off.

Do you ever keep $ store grapevine wreaths and dismantle them. I do so I can use the wreath plain.

So I just happened to have a few of them on hand, a glue gun and dried magnolia leaves.

So you know where this is going.....

So easy, just pull off the leaves from the stem and lay them out. Use front and backs of leaves for

some dimension .   Now start gluing them to the grapevine wreath. Some of my leaves were quite

 large,  but that's ok. Makes it special. Not perfect.

Then I added a cute ribbon made of raffia.  Use what you have on hand.

I always have raffia....

Wasn't sure where to hang it so it sits on my wall sconce in the bedroom.

So bloggers never throw away anything, you never know when it will come in handy.

                                 Love my cute wreath!!


                                        Thanks for visiting!

  1. I love your cute wreath too! Thanks for the inspiration.....I have some magnolia leaves in the garage! Enjoy your weekend, Gail

  2. I love that! I love magnolia leaves and have considered snipping some branches off the ones at the front of our subdivision to use at Christmas time but have never done it. LOL! I think they look good for this time of year too. The raffia really adds the perfect Fall accent to it.

  3. Your wreath is beautiful. It's good to re-use things and just re-purpose them. One can save a few dollars that way. Enjoy the weekend.

  4. Lovely! It's always amazing what you can do with so little Linda!

  5. I used to have a magnolia wreath in my bedroom years ago - it was one of my favourite treasures for a long time. I'll be storing those old magnolia leaves this winter for future use - it looks awesome!

  6. I use magnolia leaves at Christmas all the time, and wouldn't have thought of using them for fall. But they so work! Love your wreath, Linda!

  7. I've always longed for a magnolia tree because there's so much you can do with those gorgeous leaves. I love your wreath , what a great idea Linda.
