Fresh Magnolia Wreath DIY

Hello everyone! Today I`m coming at you with another easy DIY #fall project? Seasonal decor is simple and inexpensive when it's collected from your own (or your neighbors) backyard. When it comes to decorating, I`m a big fan of products from nature. They are fresh and full of life. Wreaths are no exception. I like them fresh, imperfect and a little rustic. Just like nature. There is their beauty and charm. 
So, go outside, take a walk and gather magnolia leaves to create this beautiful and very popular seasonal wreath. It`s great for fall, but also extremely popular for Christmas!
Materials needed:
Materials:
80-100 fresh magnolia leaves
florist wire
wire cutters
straw wreath form or grapevine wreath
Tutorial:
1. Gather & Arrange Leaves
Pull all the good leaves from the branches and sort leaves into three piles by size: small, medium and large.
Collect 3 leaves in a bunch, holding them by the stems. If working with leaves of varying sizes, arrange smaller leaves in front and larger leaves in back or alternate the other way around, like I did . 
2.Wrap Bunches
Cut a piece of florist wire and wrap tightly around stems of leaf bunches to secure. 
3. Tie Bunches to Wreath
Before you start attaching leaves to your wreath form, make a small hanging loop out of a thicker wire and twist it around the top of your wreath form to secure. It is so nice to have this loop when you go to hang your wreath up!!
Now you can start attaching your leaves to the wreath form. Use longer piece of wire to secure each bunch to the wreath. Twist wire tightly at the back of the wreath to hold bunches in place. 
Add remaining bunches, positioning them close together with all stems pointing in the same direction.Step back from the wreath occasionally to make sure it looks full and even. Add more bunches if needed. Continue to tie on bunches until entire wreath is covered, and use as a candle centerpiece or hang as a traditional wreath.
Tip: This fresh magnolia leaf wreath will dry, but it can last about 4-6 weeks. Even when it`s dry, it`s beautiful, but if you don't like the look of the dried leaves, use faux leaves, this way it will last you for years.
And there you have it! Now you can hang it up and take a picture!

  2. Najdraži su mi ovakvi detalji iz prirode. Samo je potrebno osvrnuti se oko sebe i iskoristiti ono što nam priroda nudi. Upravo te sitnice domu daju dodatnu toplinu i ugodan osjećaj. Hvala na ideji, vjenčić je predivno ispao! :-*
