10 Magnolia Market Looks to DIY

If you’re a fan of farmhouse style or vintage touches, no doubt you’re aware of Chip and Joanna Gaines from HGTV’s hit show Fixer Upper.  The couple has made a name for themselves through a line of housewares and lifestyle pieces indicative of their style – all available at their shop, Magnolia Market.  Most of the items have been used to style homes on their show, and all of them have the kind of rustic charm Joanna is known for.  But styling your house entirely in Magnolia Market decor is pretty cost prohibitive.  So why not DIY?  We’ve gathered several of our favorite signature Magnolia Market pieces, along with several DIY alternatives.  Now you can get the look you love throughout your whole home without breaking the bank!

From left: If you’ve got access to a magnolia tree, use the dropped leaves by simply poking them into a foam wreath form.  No glue or pins necessary!  // Grab a faux green magnolia leaf spray, (you can find one here) and use floral pins to attach to a mossy wreath form.  //  Try a mixed green magnolia bush, like this one, and push pins to secure the leaves.

2. Cotton Stems

 From left: Create the calyx of the boll from pinecone scales.  Simply glue them to a cotton ball one at a time before gluing to the stem.  // Paint egg cartons and cut into a floral or calyx shape, then add cotton balls and glue to the branches.  // Cut small calyx shapes from brown paper bags.  You can make each one a bit different so the cotton boll is at varying stages of blooming.

The character of the Magnolia Market sign comes from the shiplap planks in the background and the 3D effect of the letters.  From left: This sign is made from planks of reclaimed wood and wooden letters from the craft store. //  A sanded and distressed board gives this sign a rustic feeling, while a homey mini grapevine wreath adds the 3D effect. // Though this sign uses metal letters like these to spell “farm” instead of home, the rustic charm is the same.  The metal letters were screwed directly into the pallet wood.
