I love having a wreath on our front door. It adds so much! Especially for us since our front yard has no landscaping yet 😉 I had bought a gorgeous dried floral wreath and sadly it did not do well with the few hours of sun it gets before night time. I thought maybe it might make it since it’s not in direct sun for too long but I was wrong. I learned my lesson. I’m sticking with faux wreaths for now since they will last quite a bit longer before they fade away. To rectify the situation, I went to the store and decided to make a magnolia wreath diy.
- Magnolia leave stems (I bought five at Michaels and ended up using only four; I happened to get them on sale for 50% off!)
- Grapevine wreath (I reused one that I had torn everything off of already, but you can find these for less at thrift stores or at local craft stores)
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun and glue
To create a more natural look, you can turn some of the leaves around so you can see the back as well. I have seen faux magnolia stems be all green, so you might not need or want to do this. I liked the look and felt it added more visual interest to the wreath.
