DIY Modern Garden Wreath

A boxy shape gives a traditional fruit-and-greens wreath a modern feel. For an extra lush look, substitute the usual evergreen boughs for fresh stems of velvety magnolia leaves.

  1. Insert the stems into a metal wreath frame, available through florists or craft shops, until the frame is covered, tying them in place with florist’s wire as you go.
  2. Next, add the faux fruit (we chose rich red pomegranates): poke a florist's pick through the base of the fruit, secure pick with hot glue and tie it to the frame with the attached wire.
  3. Fill in any gaps with single magnolia leaves.
