Summer is just around the corner and I can hardly wait. There is a good chance that’s because I have a lot to be excited for this summer, but there’s a good chance that I just love Summer too. I wanted to create a new wreath to usher in the season. I love using lemons as decor in my home so I decided to create a Summer Lemon Wreath.
I used a grapevine wreath, some faux greenery, and lots of faux lemons for this project.
I started by gathering some floral wire so I could start attaching the greenery. I went back and forth trying to decide if I should use hot glue or the floral wire, in the end the wire won.
I cut short lengths of wire, wrapped it around some of the greenery, and then looped the wire to the back. Once the wire was poking out the back, I twisted it together and trimmed off the excess.
Once all the greenery was attached it was time to add the lemons. I ended up deciding to hot glue the lemon onto the wreath. The lemons were placed in kind of a random way, filling gaps in the greenery and just doing what looked right to me.
The wreath needed just a little something more so I decided to grab some yellow and white chevron fabric I had laying around. I cut a narrow strip of the fabric and made a little bow with it. The bow also got hot glued on.
I popped my beautiful new Summer Lemon Wreath on my door and fell in love. It completely brightens and refreshes my whole porch! Bring on SUMMER, I’m ready!!!
