Fall Magnolia Wreath

I love fall along with all of the trees changing colors, the slightly cooler weather, and the thought of wearing boots, sweaters, and scarfs really makes me happy. But it's still in the upper eighties here in Alabama as I decorate for fall. Every year I try to rush the fall decor along with my fall wardrobe. Whatever the temperature may be in your area, you can never have enough seasonal decor. 



Today I'm sharing with you how I made this simple and free magnolia wreath. 

I started out with a large grapevine wreath and just began filling it with magnolia leaves all the way around the wreath- layering in one direction, then I added hot glue where needed. 



Some of the leaves are nicely dried and have that wonderful brown on the backsides, while the majority are luscious shiny and green. The combination of the two colors have a nice contrast for a fall wreath. The wreath really makes a statement hanging in our foyer!



This week I'll be sharing more fall decor from around our home, so don't forget to stop back by!
