Tutorial to Make Your Own Magnolia Wreath DIY style!
Magnolia wreaths are gorgeous, but can be incredibly expensive. After a quick trip to Hobby Lobby and/or a shopping trip on Amazon, this Magnolia Wreath DIY can be yours for around $20.00 compared to $95.00 or more. Seriously.
For you visual learners, you can see how I made a very similar wreath using this same process in the video below:
Leaf Wreath DIY
This project was easy and fast. I completed the entire wreath in 15-20 minutes!
I'm all about saving money while also adding a touch of greenery and charm to our home. I recently created an air plant terrarium that we are really enjoying! Another way we've added a touch of greenery to our home is with leaves taken from our backyard, dried, pressed then framed!
I'm still deciding where I want to display this. I have a few places I think would be perfect. I might just have to make more!

1. Floral Wire Cutters
2. Grape Vine Wreath (I got mine at Hobby Lobby for $7.99. I don't think these go on sale, so you could use the 40% off coupon.)
3. Magnolia leaves in floral bunch (Hobby Lobby alternates sale of these every other week. I picked up two bunches for $17.49).
Let's Get Started!
Gather all of your supplies ready
Having all of your supplies ready to go before you start makes the entire project go more quickly.
Clip each stem at the base
Each floral bundle will have several magnolia stems will be able to use.
Push the stems deep into the wreath.
No need to use hot glue! If you tuck the wire stem into the grapevine wreath, it will stay, especially if your wreath lives indoors.
Continue placing magnolia leaves around the entire perimeter of the wreath
Continue placing stems around in same direction, approximately 1 ½ to 2 inches apart until you have gone completely around the wreath.
Supplies: Grapevine wreath, floral wire cutters, magnolia leaves floral bunch
Magnolia leaves (faux)...aren't they beautiful!?!
Trim each stem near the base of the bunch. The stem will be pushed into the grape vine wreath.
Push stems into wreath approximately 1 ½-2 inches apart, shaping the leaves as you go. You could even turn some of the leaves around to show the brown side to make your wreath look more authentic.
Continue placing stems all around wreath in the same direction. As I mentioned I didn't feel the need to secure the leaves in the grapevine wreath. But if you are concerned, you could always periodically wrap floral wire around the stems once inserting them in the wreath.
Voila! After a little shaping, you're done!
I thought about using this wreath for the front door, but I have double doors and I didn't get enough supplies for two identical wreaths.
So for now, the below picture shows where I opted to locate this beauty:
I love it!
I'll bend a few of the stems to spread out the leaves a bit more. When I get a moment, I also will move the wreath down a little on this wooden/iron wall decor as it's a little too high. But for now, above our pretty painted piano is where it stays:)
