5 Minute DIY Magnolia Wreath for Less Than $25
- Grapevine Wreath (I used an 18" wreath)
- Magnolia Garland (I used a 5' garland)
Since I already have a stash of grapevine wreaths from thrift stores (that I bought for 99 cents up to $1.49 each!) I started searching for magnolia garlands that I could wrap around my wreath to make my own for a fraction of the price. It took quite a bit of time and searching to find a good deal but I have patience when I'm bargain hunting, which is rewarded quite frequently. I know it's cliche to say but I do believe great things come to those who wait (and do a lot of searching). I finally happened upon a great sale that Joann was having on their website and I purchased my magnolia garlands for half off. Each garland was only $19.99 after my savings!
This is one of my magnolia garlands. The whole garland is wired so it easily bends, including the leaves.
I wanted to hang one of my magnolia wreaths on an old window I have in my living room. I've hung other wreaths up on this window in the past like my DIY boxwood wreath. To hang wreaths up on windows or glass I use suction cup hooks.
After I put up my hook I hung my grapevine wreath up.
Then I got my magnolia garland and wrapped it around the wreath. I stuck the end piece of the stem inside of the grapevine wreath so it would stay in place. Then I adjusted the leaves and the stem all around the wreath so the grapevine would not show and so it would give my wreath the nice full look I wanted. Since the whole garland is wired it easily bent to where I wanted the leaves.
That's all there is to it! This has got to be one of my easiest home decor crafts and it only took 5 minutes! The part that takes the longest is adjusting the leaves to your particular aesthetic.
This project cost me a little over $20 and my wreath is about 21" in diameter. I would have spent double (if I was lucky) on up to quadruple the price on a magnolia wreath that size! I seriously love DIY decor! Check out my blog post for more pictures and links to magnolia garland deals! https://www.thriftyartsygirl.com/2020/06/5-minute-diy-magnolia-wreath-for-less.html
