CRAFTY MONDAY - Magnolia Tree Leaves Wall Art! You’ll be Surprise by What You Can Make with Materials from Your Garden!
The Hodge-podge of fall colors are so well represented in these Magnolia tree leaves wall arrangement. The leaves turn this pretty after they drop from the tree. This is perhaps one of my favorite trees. The two glossy green leaves that you see in this arrangement, are a good example of the almost year-round color of the Magnolia tree, since it is an evergreen. However, once the leaves mature, they become bright yellow and fall. Once down, the transformation begins and trust me, the colors for your projects won’t disappoint. I just added some acorns to this arrangement to keep up with the fall theme. Come on now, go to your backyard and get crafty today!
1 rounded base (I used a discarded brie cheese container I found at Costco, about 13” in diameter; however, you can use any plate or charger plate or any round base that you may have at home) (free)
15-20 Magnolia tree leaves, the more colors the better. (free)
2 inches of fine twine to glue in the back to hang it
Clean all leaves with a wet paper towel and allow them to dry.
Glue the tops to the acorns if they are detached**
Glue the leaves and acorns in any pattern design that you like.
Glue a small piece of twine in the back in order to hang it in the wall.
** (Remember to put the acorns in the oven for 30 minutes at 175 degrees to remove any insects they may have and then let them cool at room temperature before using)
