    Do the fresh leaves that are dried turn completely brown? Or does the green stay a little bit? Debating on drying leaves, or buying faux! Thanks!!

      Hi Ashley, I added an updated picture of my magnolia wreath that I took today to the bottom of my post. The magnolia leaves are definitely not as glossy as they once were but they are definitely still green:).

      Thanks so much for stopping by Tricia! I didn’t preserve the Magnolia leaves other than using ones that had already dried naturally from my yard. The leaves of my dried magnolia leaf have lasted a long time. I currently have the wreath displayed on my family room mantel and added a picture above to show you how it looks now 1.5 years later:). Happy New Year, Tara

      Hi Reza! Thanks so much for commenting on my how to make a magnolia wreath post. I didn’t really do anything to preserve the magnolia leaves other than leaving them out to air dry before assembling the dried magnolia wreath:). Take care, Tara

    Hi Tara,
    I am thinking of spraying the dried leaves with hairspray. I did that with a cotton wreath that I picked (in the south) . The cotton balls lasted a long time.

    Spritzing or painting the leaves with diluted Mop & Glo Floor Wax keeps them looking pretty and shiny much longer. Or dip them in it for complete coverage on both sides and lay in the grass on a sunny day to dry.

      Thanks so much for your tips Linda! Mop & Glo does wonders for my tile floors and I will have to try this next time I make our magnolia leaves. Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting on our blog.
