5 minute DIY Magnolia Wreath for less than $25

I'm kind of obsessed with magnolia wreaths. They blend beautifully with pretty much any decor from farmhouse to cottage to rustic and so many others. My style in my home is a little bit farmhouse, a little bit french country so it was inevitable that I would want a magnolia wreath (or 2 or 3) mixed in with my decor.  I swooned over them for years but never purchased one because I wasn't willing to spend $50-$100 for a large magnolia wreath.

Being the thrifty DIY'er that I am I knew there had to be a way to make my own magnolia wreath for much less so I came up with an idea that is so easy, anyone can do it! Plus it only takes 2 supplies!

DIY Magnolia Wreath Supplies:

-Grapevine Wreath (I used an 18" wreath)
-Magnolia Garland (I used a 5' garland)

Since I already have a stash of grapevine wreaths from thrift stores (that I bought for 99 cents up to $1.49 each!) I started searching for magnolia garlands that I could wrap around my wreath to make my own for a fraction of the price. It took quite a bit of time and searching to find a good deal but I have patience when I'm bargain hunting, which is rewarded quite frequently. I know it's cliche to say but I do believe great things come to those who wait (and do a lot of searching). I finally happened upon a great sale that Joann was having on their website and I purchased my magnolia garlands for half off. Each garland was only $19.99 after my savings! I know not everyone can get that lucky so I'll share some of the other magnolia garlands I found that are also pretty good deals: AmazonHobby Lobby, Amazon.

This is one of my magnolia garlands. The whole garland is wired so it easily bends, including the leaves.

I wanted to hang one of my magnolia wreaths on an old window I have in my living room. I've hung other wreaths up on this window in the past like my DIY boxwood wreath. To hang wreaths up on windows or glass I use suction cup hooks.

After I put up my hook I hung my grapevine wreath up.

Then I got my magnolia garland and wrapped it around the wreath. I stuck the end piece of the stem inside of the grapevine wreath so it would stay in place. Then I adjusted the leaves and the stem all around the wreath so the grapevine would not show and so it would give my wreath the nice full look I wanted. Since the whole garland is wired it easily bent to where I wanted the leaves.

That's all there is to it! This has got to be one of my easiest home decor crafts and it only took 5 minutes! The part that takes the longest is adjusting the leaves to your particular aesthetic.

I love the way my magnolia wreath looks by my reclaimed wood trough and my ambient birdcage.

This project cost me a little over $20 and my wreath is about 21" in diameter. I would have spent double (if I was lucky) on up to quadruple the price on a magnolia wreath that size! I seriously love DIY decor!

Until the next time,
