Ever since Chip and Joanna Gaines hit the scene, we’ve seen a huge trend towards farmhouse decor. Everything from shiplap, all white designs, open shelving and rustic accessories are taking centerstage as home owners recreate the farmhouse feel for themselves. One of Jo Jo’s favorite ways to decorate is to use live greenery and the Magnolia leaf is no exception (uhh, hello Magnolia Market!). Magnolia leaves are vibrant, large and sturdy. They are easy to incorporate into decor and give that breath of fresh air that only living plants can bring. Whether you use fake or fresh leaves, these 7 magnolia leaf DIY projects are worth making to get that farmhouse look.
1. Magnolia Leaf DIY Wreath
Magnolia Leaf Wreaths are probably the most popular ways to DIY for your farmhouse design. You can make them for your front door, to cover up a blank spot on a huge wall, or make small ones to hang all over. They can be expensive to buy, so that’s why we love this DIY option! You can use real magnolia leaves, or purchase fake ones from a craft store to last forever. This particular craft is inexpensive, but it looks like a million bucks.

6. Magnolia Leaf Charger Plates
Joanna Gaines often reveals her final design by having beautiful table settings. In real life, we don’t often have the luxury of letting a table sit with full place settings (because, hello KIDS!). However, if you have a fancy dining room that doesn’t get touched, or you just want to wow dinner guests then this magnolia leaf charge plate DIY is perfect. It’s merely a manner of gluing the leaves to a paper plate and then setting your presentable dinnerware on top!
