How can I put all the petals together?
Thanks all of you for your help.

If you'll be making a near life sized magnolia, you'll need to wire each individual petal and then tape those together around the central stamen.

Analuna,

Here is a magnolia that I did just this week. I put each petal on a white floral wire and let them dry. Then assembled them all together around the center piece. I have also made them without wires. Take a look in my photos and you will see a picture of that one on a wedding cake. I used royal icing to glue the petals together. Just put wax paper underneath, so you will be able to pull it off. I set it in a bowl to dry so the petals would curl up. I hope this helps. If you need anything else, please let me know.
