So why magnolias? Well I have an affinity for them and have had one for a long time. After all we have a huge magnolia painting hanging in our living room, and we recently planted 3 Magnolia Little Gems in our backyard. I love the glossy green top leaves, with the fuzzy brown underside, and the flowers in bloom are spectacular. If you don’t have a magnolia tree in you yard, hunt around the neighborhood and snip a few branches off. Grab a metal wreath and some florist wire (both can be found at Michael’s), and some little wire nippers or a strong pair of scissors, and you’re good to go! Grab a little helper too if you need to.
I at first was stumped where to hang my wreath since I already have a front door wreath I love, but then I figured wreaths don’t have to just be limited to outdoor decor, so hung it above one of my favorite corners in my house. I think it looks like it was made to hang there, don’t you think?
Let me know if you have any questions or if you try to make your own. Another idea is to also use olive branches, Japanese boxwood or any type of hearty and pretty evergreen. The flower mart had so many options it gave me some great inspiration.
