I love this, but where do I find Olive branches??

Emily -


I have two suggestions for you. First, I would ask your favorite local florist if you could place an order with them for 2 or 3 bunches of olive branches. Most florists would be happy to do so. If that doesn’t work for you, I’ve actually found some beautiful dried branches at my neighborhood craft store. If they don’t have olive specifically they’ll probably have something else that could work.

I hope that helps!

This is such a helpful site, thanks! I do have one question… How long do these olive leaves wreath last? Does it start falling apart or get dry and brittle or brown over time? I wanted to do some decorations like this for my wedding but am not sure when to do them without them starting to look bad. Thanks for your advice!

I am so sad!!! I made this beautiful wreath after trying to find olive branches at many places. I was so excited to make it and it is day 3 since it has been hanging on my wall, all the leaves have dried and folded in half! Is there a way to preserve the leaves for longer after you buy them?
