    Love magnolia wreaths!! How long did the leaves last with the mod podge method? Do they last any longer with the glycerin method?

      Hi Angela! They are about the same. The mistake though that I made with some of the Mod Podge leaves is that I did not let some of them dry completely after rinsing all the debris off. So, just make sure they are. It takes some time.

    Sorry if you mentioned, how long did the color last with both methods? Thinking about using some for a diy wedding project and I’d like to know when to get started.

    1. Dinah Wulf says:

      If you are using them for a wedding, to be safe I would do it no more than 2 weeks prior. I say this because you have to make sure the leaves are COMPLETELY dry before applying the Mod Podge, or you will get some brown spots after about 2-3 weeks.
