We are blessed to live at the end of a street lined with beautiful magnolia trees. The leaves are huge and hard. I like to step on them when I go for a walk because they crunch so loud! I’ve seen other bloggers make wreaths out of them but I wanted something just a little different so I came up with a hand-lettered magnolia leaf centerpiece.

Hand Lettered Magnolia Leaf Centerpiece
These are the only supplies I used: a pile of dried magnolia leaves and a bunch of different white and metallic markers. I’ll share my favorites below.
First I just played and tested all my markers. I liked the thick white marker but thought it was a little too stark. But I did like using the thin white marker to highlight a darker metallic marker.
I finally settled on a gold metallic pen and did my faux calligraphy with the words BLESSED, GRATEFUL, and THANKFUL. (Scroll down to see the other pens I sampled.)
I thought these would be good reminders for me.
I tucked these leaves in different vignettes around my house but most stayed in this magnolia leaf centerpiece on my dining table.
