I LOVE Magnolia Leaves.
I need a little something over my fireplace in our formal living room and I had some fresh Magnolia leaves that I wanted to use in my holiday decorating. I decided to make a simple garland made of burlap ribbon, jute twine and my leaves.
I started by tying 3 leaves together in a little bunch…all different sizes. I did this four times and then simply measured out the length of ribbon I wanted. I attached each bunch to the ribbon with jute making sure they were evenly spaced. I just eyeballed it, but you could measure.;) I left the ends of my ribbon a little longer so they could hang a bit and that was it!
I love the simplicity of it and like how it compliments my nativity decor above. All it took was a few minutes and a few bucks!
