Today it’s all about door decor!
I fell in love with the magnolia wreaths on Fixer Upper. I clicked over to the Joanna’s Magnolia Market store and added 2 of the wreaths to my cart (almost $100 each). But, there’s always a but…I just could not pull the trigger on them, you know how cheap I am. I shopped around and found a couple at a store in Athens, still more than I wanted to spend. I left the store empty handed and said I’d go back soon and purchase them. Never did.
While roaming around the craft mothership aka Hobby Lobby, I found these bunches of amazing magnolia leaves. They look very realistic. The first I do is look up to see if they’re on sale and they were! I love those 40% signs.
Our Decor Enthusiasts group is sharing ideas for door decor today, all the details are at the end of the post.
1 bunch of Magnolia leaves (these are from Hobby Lobby)
Floral Pins (find them here: Floral Pins)
Wire cutters (lots of wire cutters here: Wire Cutters)
Burlap ribbon to hang. (find it here: Burlap Ribbon)
- Use the wire cutters to trim the stems, leaving some of the wire attached.
- Poke the wired end in to the wreath.
- Use floral pins to secure leaves and stems as needed.
- Work around the wreath going in the same direction.
Wrap burlap ribbon around the wreath under the leaves to create a hanger.
I am loving my magnolia wreaths! I am so glad I made them myself and saved money 😉

What do you use to hang the wreaths with on the glass front doors?
Thanks for stopping by the blog Misty, I hang the wreaths with clear command hooks.
Just made one, so easy and i absolutely love it! Thanks for the tutorial and inspiration!
Awesome! I’d love to share a photo on FB and my newsletter! email me @ [email protected]
Your blog is beautiful! I love the wreaths and may just copy your idea! Thanks so much for the inspiration.
love the entrance with the magnolia wreaths so beautiful thanks for sharing the tutorial
I love the simplicity of this wreath! thanks for sharing.
I love the simple and classey design of the wreaths.
They look lovely and compliment your doors.
Kudos to you.
Do you think you could make this with real magnolia leaves? Do you think they’d brown?
Shannon, they would turn brown for sure, but you could change them out if you have a lot! Have a great day!
I love how simple this looks to make, and is so pretty! Your front entry is gorgeous!
Thanks so much Angie!
I am not a “Fixer Upper” addict but I do tune in on occasion. I seem to have missed the magnolia wreaths but I must admit that your wreath looks as good as, if not better than, a very expensive one I purchased at an exclusive fabric and decor shop. Great job!!! I am also pleased to see you using magnolia wreaths for more than Christmas. I think I will do the same.
I will SO be making these!! So simple and gorgeous! Craft mothership…here I come! 😀 XO
These are great! Love the idea – will have to look for these on my next Hobby Lobby trip!
Debbie! Your double doors look darling! Kudos to you on the gorgeous wreaths and the money savings. They look fantastic! (love the tiny peek of Murphy looking out too) hehe
Thank you!! Murphy helped a little, well supervised! XO
I am so making these Debbie! I LOVE them! I want to hang one over my new chalkboard in the kitchen. 🙂
AND….I saw your sweet Murphy peeking out the window!! xo
Ha ha Murphy has to approve everything out front! Thank you and I can’t wait to see yours!
Wow! You saved a lot of money! I am so copying your idea! Beautiful!!!
Thank you! Yes, I love saving money and still having Fixer Upper style 😉
