The beauty of simplicity.

Wreaths have gone the way of 80s hair - the bigger the better. Feeling the holiday season could use some paring down about now, we called on Brooks Dufrene of Gerilyn Lytal Roth Interiors. What he created is a sophisticated wreath that could work in any home this holiday season with a nod to something that's quite Acadiana.

The gold magnolia leaf wreath works indoors or out. Pictured here on a front door, the wreath can be the focal point for lush greenery. Inside, center on a window in the dining room or over a mirror above the mantle. Create a few smaller wreaths for use throughout the house and at these prices, make a few more for easy gifts for family and friends.

What you'll need:
magnolia leaves
gold spray paint
glue gun
plain green wreath

1. Spray paint the leaves and let dry.
2. Spray paint wreath and let dry.
3. Using the glue gun, adhere leaves one by one onto the wreath overlapping as you go.

You can always add a bow or other subtle detail. Think a red flat velvet ribbon or soft green satin.
