Are you loving simple faux greenery wreaths?
I love to add interest and style to my home decor using some faux greenery elements, as it’s a popular trend right now. I love that you can enjoy them year round and that they don’t require really any maintenance. One of my absolute favorites is this Signature Magnolia Wreath via Magnolia.com. It’s such a gorgeous statement piece for the front door or anywhere in the home.
Magnolia is a tad on the pricey side, though!
With a $98 price tag, it’s a little out of my budget. A friend and co-worker of mine (who may be Collin’s sister, Bryn ) owns the actual Signature Magnolia wreath, pictured above on her front door. My goal: to get a similar look for under $30.
Try making your own DIY magnolia wreath!
After a trip to Michaels and a couple hours of my time, I came away with a Fixer Upper inspired faux Magnolia wreath that I’m proud to display in my home! It was pretty straightforward to do and basically consisted of placing each leaf inside a foam wreath form (which was a tad time consuming, I admit).
Here’s the method I used:
Hip Tip: Because the faux magnolias I found were on sale for under $5 per bundle, I bought those, the wreath form, and floral tape for less than $28 including tax. Plus, you can use a Michaels coupon to save even more!
Just in case you’re curious about the exact supplies that were used for my wreath, I started this project by picking up some faux magnolia leaves (I bought 2 of these bundles in-store at Michaels), a 14-inch wreath form, and floral tape.
DIY Magnolia WreathPrint
- faux magnolia leaves
- 14-inch wreath form
- floral tape
- hot glue sticks and glue gun
Wrap wreath form using floral tape. This is actually an optional step, but it looks more professional since it’s the same color as leaves.
Separate and cut individual leaves using wire cutters. Leave a little stem so you can poke it into the foam wreath form.
I arranged this wreath by making rows of 3 leaves about every two inches or so, then gluing and sticking the stems inside the wreath. It helps to use a wood skewer or something sharp to first make a hole for the stem.
Use hot glue, and insert stem into wreath.
Place 3 leaves in a row, so it covers the wreath form, and then go around the bottom of stems a couple times using floral tape. This will help further secure leaves and will help the leaves lay flat.
Note: I secured the tape using a dot of hot glue at each end.
Continue with the same process, overlapping about every 1.5-2 inches, depending on how long your leaves are. I decided to have all the darker leaves face up, but create your own look and pattern.
Keep going! See – here I’m almost done!
Here it is, all finished! What do you think?!
Right now, I’m enjoying the wreath in my entryway, and I love it. Because I took the time to tape down each row of leaves, my wreath feels sturdy, and I’ll be able to enjoy it for years to come! It was a fun and satisfying project and worth the effort.
