Get holiday ready. Deck your wall and warm your heart with our DIY Merry Magnolia Wreath (as seen in Better Homes & Garden's Make it Yourself magazine!). At Benzie, we love it in Moss colored felt trimmed with our white handmade poms but Benzie's Meadow felt with accents of Zucchini would give it the true Magnolia wreath feel. A no-glue and no-sew project too! Grab your supplies below.
First, grab your stack of felt leaves (skip the scissors and use our precut shapes) or cut your own almond shaped leaves out of yardage. Our large leaves are about 3 1/2 x 2 inches wide and our small leaves are about 2 1/2 x 1 1/4" inches wide. To give the wreath a full appearance we folded the tip of each leaf over each other and use the stick pin to attach to the styrofoam wreath.
Continue to place the leaves row by row -pinning each leaf about 1/2" to 1" apart from each other. You will only pin leaves to the front and sides of the wreath. The back side will remain unfinished.
Continue until the wreath is completed. Use leftover leaves to fill in empty spaces.
Lastly, grab the felt poms and stick the pin through the edge of the pom and carefully pin to the wreath hiding the pin in the back side of the pom. A beautiful full wreath to decorate! Go all out and add some magnolia flowers to it -get the diy!
Add any felt shapes to make it your own! Using pins allows you to update and switch things up any time you please! Happy Holidays!
