I am slightly obsessed with wreaths pretty much anytime of the year. Green leaf wreaths are beautiful because they look great both as indoor and outdoor wreaths. Plus, they’re fitting for really any season.
Here are some beautiful green leaf wreath options:
My DIY magnolia leaf wreath cost me less than $7 and a half hour of my time. I think it was time and money well spent!
The good news is this DIY project is a perfect one for beginners. It’s super simple and it is a fun craft to do with friends.
For this project, you’ll need just three things:
-Hot glue gun, like this one
-Grapevine wreath, like this one (You could use any style wreath that you prefer. I just happened to have one of these on hand.)
-Floral leaves. I used this one and had a 50% off coupon, which made it only $6.50! I had bought two of them but didn’t end up needing the second one so I returned it.
2.REMOVE ALL LEAVES FROM BRANCH
To remove the leafs from the branch, I just had to pull them off. They came off in sets of two leaves, which is perfect for this project!
3.PLACE LEAF STEMS ON WREATH AND HOT GLUE
The first leaf set I just glued to the wreath itself. As I added new leaves, I glued them to both the wreath and the previous leaf layer. That helped to keep the leaves from straying.
Here’s how it looks as it progresses:
You can use whatever item you have on hand to hang it. This wreath just so happened to have a pipe cleaner left on the back of it from when I had previously used it. I was able to simply twist it between the grapevines and secure it onto my door knocker. These over-the-door wreath hangers work well too.
I love the green pop of color against my black door! It was the perfect, simple improvement to give my home some summer green.
I hope you enjoyed this easy tutorial!
