Christmas wreaths are a holiday classic. We all like having a new one each December. They’re a way to greet all the people that visit your house during this busy season. This magnolia cone and succulent wreath DIY comes together in no time and is fitting if you like your decorations simple and natural.
I wanted to share with you a tutorial on how to make your own wreath, au natural. No glitter, sequins or shiny ornaments used here. I collected magnolia cones that fell from the street trees here in Santa Barbara, succulents (namely aeoniums which form a beautiful rosette) from my garden and walnuts from our farmers market for the decor.
You can find the step by step in the short video below. I know we are all busy shopping, decorating and baking so this project won’t take long. And, it will be fun!
Materials used to make this wreath:
– Fishing line
– Wire wreath frame, purchased at Michaels
– Magnolia cones
– Spanish moss
– Succulents, namely Aeoniums
– Hot glue
Watch the video to see the steps and you’ll have a beautiful new wreath hanging on your door in no time.

I’m a life-long gardener who still to this day gets giddy at the thought of a trip to one of the local nurseries. Yes, I actually studied landscape and environmental horticulture and the practical experience I have garnered through the years has served me well. Childhood memories of chicken manure “tea” still float through my olfactory senses to this day. I have always been an organic gardener and always will be. From the Earth … To the Earth. I was born and raised in rural, bucolic Litchfield County, Connecticut and now joyfully live a few blocks from the ocean in beautiful Santa Barbara, California.
