You might have seen these floating around TV and the internet; they've become a farmhouse decor staple. You can use these on a front door, on a headboard, or featured over an old window. What is it? It's the beautiful magnolia wreath, of course! I wanted to try my hand at making a DIY version of a magnolia wreath, and I was pleasantly surprised with how my attempt worked. This handmade magnolia wreath is beautiful, and it only costs a fraction of the cost of one you'd find in a store or online.
To make this DIY magnolia wreath, you'll need:
- 3 large faux magnolia stems (mine were given to me by afloral.com)
- grapevine wreath
- glue gun
- wire cutters
To begin, gather your faux magnolia stems and cut off all of the individual leaves.
Leave a little bit of stem on the bottom of the leaves to help secure them later to the wreath.
Place and then glue your magnolia leaves onto the grapevine wreath with a hot glue gun. I worked in rows of 3 leaves each, overlapping each row by 1 - 2 inches. Sometimes the center leaf was on top of the two side leaves in the row, and sometimes it was on the bottom - this gave my wreath a random but pleasing look.
Tuck the final row of leaves under your first row. Add dots of hot glue under any wayward leaves to keep them in place.
That's it! Isn't it simple? I'm loving the look of this beautiful wreath, and you might see it turn up on my master bedroom headboard soon!
