Magnolias are such a gorgeous flower. We have crafted them for wreaths and bouquets, used them as pretty napkin rings, and made them out of crepe paper as well as frosted paper. Another idea for your paper magnolia flowers is to attach them to some real branches. This is a simple way to create some stunning home decor for spring! In today’s tutorial, we’ll show you how to do this with our crepe paper tulip magnolia branch.

Magnolias for your Mantel

This crepe paper tulip magnolia branch would look amazing on your mantel, on a living room or dining room console table, or in your entryway. It’s a great statement piece—so no matter where you place your branch, it will stand out! Along with deciding where it will go, you’ll also need to pick the color of paper you want for your flowers.

We typically make our magnolias using white and cream paper colors. But you could craft them in various shades of pink or purple too. We have created a pink magnolia branch before, which also features crepe paper blooms but has a different look.
