Magnolia Leaf Wreath Tutorial


  1. Great idea! There is a magnolia tree in the lot next to us that drops most of its leaves on our property. I guess this is the only good use they have to me. Otherwise, I hate them and wouldnt be sad to see that tree go. Our grass in that area is dead and the leaves STINK!!

  2. I actually have a question; how long will the magnolia wreath look good? I'm concerned the leaves will turn brown and look awful. I love magnolia trees, wish their blooms would last longer. I'm so anxious to make your wreath, it's beautiful and your instructions well written.

  3. Thanks for this great tutorial! I thought it was a lot harder to make a wreath from the magnolia leaves. Do the leaves fall out as they dry? Have you ever used glue on the stem before you stick it in the wreath form? Hahaha….here I am making it harder than it actually is.

  4. It's beautiful! I checked my Dollar Tree the other day for this wreath form, and they had none here. Thanks for sharing your tutorial! 🙂

  5. If I get brave enough, I'm going to "borrow" some magnolia leaves from the neighborhood trees. So sorry now that we had to remove ours a few years ago before I learned how useful the leaves are.

  6. This is just beautiful! I love how easy it looks to do! I may need to start walking around looking in my neighbor's yards for fallen leaves 😉 I'd love for you to share this at my Creative Ways Link Party this week. It goes live on Wednesday at 8pm central. Hope to see you there!

  7. I adore this wreath! I have seen it 'floating' around this week on different linky parties, but just now getting around to your blog. I ALWAYS make fresh boxwood wreaths for Christmas. I tell my husband when he's clipping hedges in the fall NOT to clip our boxwood, I need them come Christmastime! I am so making this magnolia wreath in this year!! It's beautiful and elegant. Thanks for sharing this wonderfully creative and inexpensive homemade wreath. Shared on my SM – Coming to you from the weekend retreat!

  8. This is adorable, and I'm SO jealous b/c we DON'T have a magnolia. We may buy one though just to have those awesome flowers and leaves available!!!

  9. I'm in love with this! One of our neighbors has a magnolia tree and the leaves drop all over the sidewalk…that's common property right?! I may just have to clean up their leaves for them. 😉 haha!

  10. The magnolia is a favorite tree for me! I have made magnolia wreaths for years. I learned through my Master Gardeners’ club to spray the leaf with regular floor wax. I just pour some wax into a spray bottle and hang the wreath outdoors while spraying it. Let it drip dry and then hang it either indoors or outdoors. The wreath will look good for a few months.
