Today I’m sharing how to make a DIY All Season or 4 Season wreath with magnolia blooms and a variety of stems and greenery.
We had more snow this week but not a snow-day in sight. The fortunate thing was that the snow simply graced all the lawns and fields and left the roads alone which made car travel as easy as usual. I’m not a big fan of driving in the snow when it gets very deep (we get so little of it around here, I’ve not got much experience driving in it). But a snow-day wouldn’t be such a bad thing! I don’t even know if we will end up getting one at all this year since Spring really isn’t all that far off.
We normally get a good stretch of sunshine in February and I get all-excited when the tiny colourful pots of primulas hit the outside of the grocery stores. Those definitely mean that spring is around the corner. But since there is this odd gap each year between the holidays and spring, and I never quite know what to do with my front door, I decided it was time to create an evergreen, or all-season/4 season wreath that I could use whenever I feel in-between “seasons”.
I am loving how this simple DIY All-Season Greenery & Magnolia wreath turned out… especially since I actually deconstructed and re-used an old wreath to create something that looks entirely fresh and new!
Originally, I started with a grapevine wreath form…
As well as a variety of branches. Add to this pile of greenery some white, purple, and blue berry stems.
I layered on the leaves first…
And then added in the pumpkins, hydrangeas, and white and purple berries and tiny blue floral stems for the fall wreath (as you can see below).
I loved this pretty, high-end style (made on a budget) fall wreath!
It made me so sad to open my storage closet and see it there waiting for the leaves to turn again, when I knew it could be remade into something more evergreen that I could use throughout the year.
So… I deconstructed it! I took off the pumpkins and hydrangeas but left all the greenery and the berry and floral pics as they suit all seasons.
I picked up a Magnolia “bush” stem from Michaels, along with some yellow floral picks. I bought these on a BOGO deal so they were really affordable. I pulled the Magnolia blooms off the bush/stem and ended up with 7 blossoms. I also cut apart all the yellow floral stems, though I left most of them in groups of two.
I then used my hot glue gun to attach the Magnolia blossoms wherever a pumpkin or hydrangea had been, and grouped a couple of them together in a cluster of two.
Followed by adding glue to the stems of the yellow floral picks and tucking them in underneath the other blossoms and/or greenery. I think the pop of the mustard-yellow is really on-trend but also quite evergreen and suits all 4 seasons equally well.
Who knew that you could remake such a pretty fall wreath into something that suits all four seasons in only a few minutes and with just a few new supplies?!
What do you think?
Want to remember this?! PIN it!
I love how it turned out and can’t wait to have it adorn our front door! This weekend I hope to get my old tattered looking winter pots out of the way and bring in some fresh pots full of early spring blooms along with some cheerful little primulas. I always get so excited when I see them come out each February – how about you?
