TWENTY THURSDAYS TILL CHRISTMAS // Paper Magnolia Wreath
Pinterest is such a great place for DIY ideas. Especially when it comes to Christmas projects. 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!
Here’s what you will need:
- 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.I 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.
Cover the Styrofoam ring with paper (cut into 2″ strips) and the hot glue gun. Then slowly add the leaves to the ring, securing with the hot glue gun. Be sure to adequately cover the ring, using the photo as a guide.
Attach a small loop of string on the back of the wreath, with the glue gun, for hanging.
