I have always loved the look of magnolia leaves in the spring, and what better way to welcome spring than by adding a new wreath to your front door? Scroll down to check out how I made this easy DIY Magnolia Wreath.
This easy wreath was one of the quickest and cheapest project I’ve done, and I love how natural and elegant it turned out.
I started off with faux magnolia leaves, which $2.00 each. I purchased a total of four, but only ended up using two. I also purchased a pool noodle, and some brown jute ribbon for $1.25. I had some duct tape on hand, and used my trusty glue gun as well.
I started off by putting the ends of the pool noodle together, and then duct taping them in place. This is so much easier than buying one of those expensive styrofoam wreath forms too.
Next, I wrapped my
pool noodle wreath form with the jute ribbon. and secured it in place at the ends using my handy dandy duct tape. I have seen some tutorials where you can add a coat hanger wire inside the pool noodle to help give the wreath form more structure. I didn’t find I needed it, but it’s an option if you want to go that route.
Lastly, I pulled the faux leaves off the branches and hot glued them in place working my way around the wreath. This process only took about 10 minutes in total. I love a project that doesn’t take too much time.
Here is my completed wreath. I love how it turned out. To hang it, I simply cut a slit in the jute ribbon, in order to slide the wreath hanger inside.
Here is a close up of the leaves. I think they look fairly realistic and I love the subtle simplicity of the magnolia leaves.
Happy Spring Everyone. See you soon my friends,
P.S. I’m partying at the DIY Like a Boss link party.
