How to make a DIY Magnolia Fall Centerpiece in a Pumpkin Frame

Have you seen those adorable pumpkin wreaths at your local craft stores? They’re so cute, and I used two of these to create a 3D pumpkin arrangement with fresh magnolia branches, faux magnolia blooms, and a few branches of dried pods. You can read the full tutorial on my blog HERE.
