Begin creating the magnolia wreath by wrapping a foam wreath form in peel-and-stick moss. Be sure that all parts of the foam form are covered.

Attach Leaves

Next, attach faux magnolia leaves to the form one at a time. Floral pins are a great tool to use in attaching the leaves as they will stick through the leaves and foam and hold both items securely. Begin by placing one leaf at an angle and layering the leaves in a natural pattern over the rest of the form. Be certain to cover all visible areas of the wreath to create a full, luscious-looking wreath.

Add Ribbon

A wreath is not complete without a beautiful ribbon. Create an appealing accoutrement as well as a useful hanging device with the help of a thick ribbon. Loop the ribbon through the wreath and fashion a bow or a knot once the wreath’s final resting place has been determined. Now, hang your new accessory to enjoy season after season.
