I recently saw this paper Magnolia wreath that was made by Seeking Lavender Lane. I loved the look of it so I decided to make my own using a scrapbook paper instead. It’s an easy DIY and I think you should try it!

  • One Styrofoam wreath (I used a 14″ wreath)
  • 8 large sheets of printed scrapbook paper
  • Six sheets white copy paper
  • Glue gun
  • Small piece of twine

I used my faux Magnolia wreath that I purchased in Waco as a guide to make my pattern for the leaves.B42DA90B-2734-4330-ACC8-C6B953B5BE9EI used approximately 50 cut magnolia leaves. Cut at least twenty more leaves than you think you will need as you don’t want to run out.
