Love Fixer Upper, Magnolia Homes and pretty much all things Chip and Joanna Gaines? Pretty sure a lot of us do, especially now that even Target is carrying Joanna Gaines inspired home decor. It looks like her DIYs, but is not. So strange. I would much, much rather make my own DIY farmhouse decor and have my house looking like a Magnolia home, but with things I actually made myself. Cheaper and much nicer looking, the faux DIY ideas I’ve seen at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Walmart and now even Target just will not do. I have to admit the Magnolia Home site and also Nordstrom does have some nice Magnolia market things for sale, but the prices, oh my. You really can make these items yourself if you just look around for the right tutorials. Fortunately, we did this for you. From tabletop decor to pretty wall art to quick and easy projects to make when you don’t have a whole lot of time, we have a little Magnolia inspired something for everyone. Enjoy making your own home decor with this vintage, Magnolia market inspired DIY ideas and crafts.

3. DIY Fixer Upper Cathedral Window Frame
Of all the Fixer Upper DIY projects I’ve seen this year, I must admit I think this one is the prettiest. In a home that does not yet have much decor, I’ve seen a friend add this and transform the look of the room completely, just by adding this one thing. Make a cathedral window frame for yourself, the tutorial is really well done, easy to follow instructions, and sort of fun, too. I love adding a whitewash looking finish to pretty much anything and think you will to. This is an art project as much as it is anything. No woodworking skills required since you get the cathedral frame from a cheap source like Etsy and then finish it yourself. Don’t pay Magnolia market prices, but yet make your mantle decor awesome this Christmas.
