This DIY Fall Magnolia Wreath is perfect for autumn because it changes colors with the season.
As I was looking at fall wreaths earlier this year I came across this gorgeous Magnolia Wheat Wreath and fell in love with it!
The price was way more than I had hoped to pay, so I decided the best option was to make one! Well, actually two.
Originally I had planned to make two of these gorgeous Fall Magnolia Wreaths for our front doors, but it turns out I did not have enough magnolia branches.
My in-laws have a massive magnolia tree with limbs that sweep down to the ground near their pool and they generously allowed me to trim away some branches for this DIY.
We trimmed away way more than I thought I would need, but it turns out, more than what I thought I needed for two wreaths was just enough to make one wreath…
But that’s only because I really like a nice full wreath!
I thought about getting some more branches but decided to call it a day and hang this wreath in our entryway instead.
When I first started making this Magnolia Wreath I tried hot gluing individual leaves to the wreath frame.
Totally didn’t work! Plus it looked flat and boring.
So I decided to take small branches of leaves (off of the big branches we had cut off of the tree) and weave them into the metal wreath frame.
This worked perfectly!
The wreath was full and just like the picture of the Magnolia Wheat Wreath I had originally fallen in love with!
I was going to add eucalyptus too but decided to just add the wheat and pinecones. And I love how it turned out!
What’s even more fun about this wreath is that the magnolia leaves slowly turn from green to brown over the weeks.
The photos of me holding the Magnolia Wreath were taken about a week after the leaves were cut from the tree and the photos of the fall wreath on the wall are about 2+ weeks post being cut from the tree.
It’s like the wreath is turning from summer to fall, just like the leaves in our forest!
1. First, break off small branches of magnolia leaves and place the end of the stem through the wire wreath frame and up and over another wire to wedge it into place. See the photo above.
2. Continue this process in a clockwise (or counterclockwise) direction until the frame is covered in small branches of magnolia leaves.
Tip: As needed, hot glue the stems or the leaves to the wire wreath frame to help keep it secured to the wreath frame.
3. Next, cut off 1/2 – 2/3rds of the wheat stem so that it isn’t so long.
4. Place a little bit of hot glue on the end of the wheat stem and poke it into the wreath. You only want the awn (the bristle-like part of the wheat) to be visible.
5. Then hot glue the pinecones upside down into various places on your wreath.
6. Finally, hang your wreath and enjoy your new fall decor!
