DIY Magnolia Wreath

DIY Magnolia Wreath

I love Fixer Upper. Like a lot. Joanna Gaines is pretty much my spirit animal. 

One of the design features she uses often is her signature magnolia wreath. I fell in love with it when I saw it online, but I couldn't justify paying the amount for it. So I did what any girl on a tight budget would do, I made my own!

What You Need ... 

1. Styrofoam Ring

2. 2 Twigs of Magnolia Leaves (Like these)

3. Glue Gun

4. Pins, pins and more pins!

What To Do ... 

So it's super easy! Just simply start pining your leaves in a counter-clockwise angle on the ring. Like this ... 

I suggest to start pinning the outer edge and move your way around and down to the inside. To add more depth, you can pin some on the back like this ... 

The goal here isn't perfection. Think wild and free! It's supposed to look natural. Flip some of the leaves over to get some brown in there too! 

So once you get your leaves pinned, go in and hot glue the parts that are loose. Make sure the leaves are secure.

It looks like it might be a fragile wreath, but mine has survived 70 mph gusts of wind!
