I grew up in the south, but spent almost all of my adult life in the midwest until we moved to southern Kentucky for my husband's work about three years ago. I love. love, love magnolia trees! I remember climbing them as a child and enjoying their beauty when I was old enough to appreciate it. I missed them all those years so now that we are in a more southern climate where I can get magnolia leaves, I am decorating with them.
I love this simple magnolia wreath that can flow from fall right into Christmas just by changing up the mantel decorations. Plus this is so budget friendly with most of the supplies coming from Dollar Tree.

A big thank you to our friends the Mikulcuks for giving us magnolia cuttings!
Watch my video tutorial in which I show you how to make a magnolia leaf wreath.
I probably explained this better in the video, but you make small bundles of leaves by grouping them together and wrapping rubber bands around the stems. I used 7 leaves in each bundle. One wreath easily has over 100 leaves in it. Then you tie the stem bundles to the frame and continue until the wreath is filled in. You can always adjust leaves and add more to get the look you want. If you like, add a bow or ribbon to hang the wreath.
