Salal leaves (also known as lemon leaves) are often used as filler for floral arrangements and centerpieces because of their curved shape and beautiful glossy leaves. Those characteristics also make them perfect for modern holiday wreaths. This DIY Christmas wreath project blends dried Salal leaves with magnolia leaves painted in a metallic hue, bright poinsettia petals for a punch of color, and springs of evergreen. The result is an anything-but-ordinary holiday wreath that will last for years.
Hang your wreath on a nail or hook (if you want a damage-free hanger, try a strong suction hook). At the end of the season, tuck your wreath away for use again next year. Just wrap loosely with tissue paper and place in a wreath storage container. (We prefer a hard plastic wreath storage container to avoid accidental crushing.)
