This gorgeous and SUPER EASY magnolia wreath promises to bring a bit of Joanna Gaines to your front door. Perfect wreath for a modern farmhouse vibe!
Apparently I’m the wreath girl! I think this is my sixth wreath tutorial, haha. There’s just something about making my own wreaths that brings me joy. Probably because I can’t bring myself to pay $40+ for a new wreath every season (or every month, lets be honest…) So I like to make them myself for more like $15! My most famous-est wreath tutorial is my 15 Dollar Wreath. My Tulip Wreath was also a huge hit this spring, and I also have two fall wreath tutorials here and here.
Want to hear a sad story? My house in STL had a glass storm door in front of our regular front door, and our house faced west. The sun BAKED my door. And it melted my favorite wreath! Melted! Literally! I had to throw it away. So when we moved to South Carolina, I needed to replace it. Naturally, I headed to Hobby Lobby to find that same leafy swag to make another one, and no luck! They don’t carry that same greenery anymore. I almost picked up a different green leafy one until…
I saw this gorgeous thing of Fixer-Upper, Joanna Gaines, Southern Living, perfection beauty… MAGNOLIA GARLAND. Cue all the heart eyes. I draped it around the grapevine wreath and gasped at its loveliness. And it turned into a gorgeous wreath.
The magnolia wreath looks fantastic on my friend’s black door. I love how the magnolia blooms add a bit of feminine brightness. I’ve made it with the garland going all the way around the wreath and also with having the leaves and flowers 3/4 around, and I can’t decide which one I like better! Maybe you just can’t go wrong with magnolias. 😉
How to Make a Farmhouse Style Magnolia Wreath
Its ridiculously easy to make, you just need a basic 18″ grapevine wreath, some floral wire (or twisty ties!), and this magnolia swag from Hobby Lobby. I’ve looked at other stores for similar swags and haven’t found any. It’s only at Hobby Lobby. Its usually $29.99, but its on “sale” every other week for 50% off, so make sure you get it on sale (or use a coupon)! You can buy it in store, or online here.
Lay the magnolia swag on top of the wreath, and take a piece of wire and wrap it around the stem of the greenery and weave it into a bit of the grapevine and twist them together securely. Continue attaching the magnolia swag to the wreath, wrestling it into the desired shape as you go. You probably want to secure it in about 5-6 places. Then just fluff and adjust as needed! I like it kinda asymmetrical, hung at an angle, but the swag is long enough to go around the whole wreath if you’d like it that way. A burlap bow or a monogram would look nice too. And if you don’t have a wreath hanger, you can attach a Command hook to your door and use that instead.
There you go! And cheaper than a trip to the Silos! 😉
