Apple and Magnolia Wreath

By: Edwin R. Smith, CPD, AIFD for Styrofoam Brand Foam

Fall into the season with apples, fruits and berries. In six easy steps Edwin Smith shows us how to create this great wreath. It's a great door decoration that will please anyone who comes a knockin'.


  • STYROFOAM* Brand Products:
    • Wreath: 12" x 2" x 2"
  • Artificial fruits and berries: crabapples, assorted colors, approx. 36; red berries, approx. 75; rust red cranberries, approx. 75
  • Silk or preserved magnolia leaves, approx. 30
  • 2-1/2" dark green ribbon, 1-1/2 yds.
  • Chenille stem
  • Scissors
  • 2" straight pins
  • Wire cutters
  • Floral pins
  • Ruler
  • Thick white craft glue or low-temp glue gun and glue sticks


  1. Glue dark green ribbon around outside edge of wreath to cover. Trim ribbon even with edges.
  2. Glue magnolia leaves to cover inside edge of wreath, shaping leaves into gentle curves before pressing into place. If necessary, insert straight pins to keep leaves flat.
  3. Glue and pin a row of magnolia leaves around front of wreath with base of leaves overlapping slightly and tips pointing outward (see photo). Position leaves so ends extend beyond inside and outside edges of wreath.
  4. Position wreath face down on work surface. Follow Step 3 to glue and pin a row of magnolia leaves around back of wreath, centering tips of back leaves between leaves on front (see photo). Position wreath face up and check symmetry, adding and adjusting leaves as necessary.
  5. Glue two rows of alternating color crabapples to front of wreath around inside circle (see photo). Glue red berries in clusters between rows of crabapples. Glue rust red cranberries in a circle inside interior row of crabapples.
  6. Twist ends of chenille stem together to form a loop. Glue and insert loop in top center back of wreath for a hanger. Secure hanger by inserting floral pins into foam over chenille stem.
