Magnolia wreaths are a staple in farmhouse style homes and are so cheap and easy to make. This wreath cost about $10 and I can’t wait to make another! Everything can be purchased at a local craft store but I chose to explore Hobby Lobby first time and I could have spent hours there! All the garland was 50% off so I got the magnolia leaves for $7.99 and then I picked up a foam wreath that was $4.99 and I used a 50% off coupon! I actually wanted to get a grapevine style wreath but I was so distracted by the rest of the store!
Supplies you will need
- Green Foam Wreath
- Magnolia Leaves
- Hot Glue Gun
- Mini Screw Driver (or anything to poke holes in the foam wreath)
Step 1: Cut the leaves
First you will need to cut the leaves from the garland, I used wire cutters but a sharp pair of scissors will do the trick. Make sure to leave enough stem on the leaf to be able to stick in the foam wreath.
Step 2: Start mapping out the leaf placement
Before you jump right in you should get an idea where the best leaf placement is. Start by poking holes in the foam on an angle so leaves lay flat. Once you have a few rows done you can start securing with hot glue.
Step 3: Secure leafs
The best part about this project is there is not right or wrong way to add the leaves. You just start laying them in a circle the way you like them and if it is not perfect you can use hot glue to adjust the leaves. Here you can see an example where the leaf would not lay flat so I just added a dap of glue so it would adhered to the leaf below.
Once you go all the way around the wreath (I have my leaves going clock wise) you can hold it up to look at it from different angles and add more leaves to fill in and fully cover the wreath and that is it! Now you have a beautiful Magnolia Wreath that will last forever!
I am still not a 100% sure where I am going to put this one but once I do I will post it 🙂
Hope you enjoyed!
See you next Sunday!
