Well,,,,,as promised, I'm gonna show you how to make one of my favorite things for the holidays!
a magnolia wreath.
Oh, how I love magnolias!
the problem was.....finding them.
If you live where I live they are NO WHERE....except neighborhoods. So,,,,I politely "borrowed" a few leaves off of a deserted yard.
hum....just don't tell.
Anyway, here's what cha do to get this look
First you start with this:
stole borrowed from a that yard
cut the leaves off at the base. See those little scissor/snippers back there behind the leaves? Those are Fisker brand. The best EVER!!! I mean, really folks, I was cutting freakin stalks off the trees with those things. (I'm gonna try to prune my tree with them)
I used a 24" green foam form. I also used those wire pick thingys. Both came from a wholesale floral supply company.
start by poking the leaves in with the greenery picks
layer them like so
and more (be sure the leaves cover the sides)
continuing around the entire circle, layering the leaves
I don't intend to leave (no pun intended) this on the fridge
but here's the finished product!!!
I think mine are a little cheaper than buying them.....cost? about 20.00 (unless I get fined for stealing some one's magnolia leaves.....I'm just sayin)
have a fantabulous Wed. night!!!!
