Want a little piece of Magnolia Farms in your home? Until we can finally take that road trip to the Silos, we’ll settle for this easy-to-make magnolia leaf wreath that JoAnna would be proud of.
Who isn’t obsessed with Chip and Joanna Gaines these days?? I fully admit that I’m glued to the TV anytime “Fixer Upper” is on. I usually try to brainstorm ways to get my husband to move to Waco, Texas while watching. However, during a recent episode, I fell in love with a magnolia leaf wreath Joanna placed on the lucky family’s new front door. I needed to make one my own home!
Here is a list of the items I used to create my wreath:
- 16″ FloraCraft foam wreath
- 2 Magnolia leaf garlands (6 ft long)
- floral tape
- screwdriver (you could also use a larger nail or screw)
Use your floral tape to wrap your wreath. This will help your foam wreath blend into the background behind your magnolia leaves.
Take all the leaves off of your garland.
Use your screwdriver to poke a hole for your leaf stem. You may need to wiggle it around to make sure the hole will be big enough.
Push the stems into the hole. You could glue to make sure nothing is loose but I’d wait until the whole wreath is created. I found I wanted to move a few leaves around afterward to make it look more even in places.
Did you make a mistake? Yea, me either! But just in case you did, just cover the mistake with extra floral tape and wallah! No more mistake!!
You might find that some of the stems have extra glue or are just wide and hard to place in the foam. Just cut off the end and it will make placing easier.
Keep adding leaves to your wreath until you get your desired look. It always helps me to take a step back and look at it to see where I need to add or move leaves.
And here is my final product! I’m all heart-eyes over here!! I guess I don’t need to move to Waco after all.
