Magnolia leaves are a classic staple in the floral world, and it's no wonder. They're so versatile with their combination of both waxy and velvety textures, plus they're hardy as heck, which is always a plus for creating beautiful decor pieces. Magnolia garlands and wreaths can actually be kept for years, and while they will fade and dry, will retain their shape, and can be sprayed any color your desire.
