DIY: Lemon Wreath

4:00:00 AM

The other week, I posted a picture of my favorite summer wreath. There were many people who were interested in how I made the wreath! So I decided to bring back my tutorial so everyone can make their own lemon wreath! 

DIY: Lemon Wreath

The materials you need are:
  • Grapevine wreath form or Styrofoam form: you can buy these at Hobby Lobby or Michael's
  • Bag of plastic lemons or lemons on a branch: once again, Hobby Lobby or Michael's
  • Hot glue
  • Zip ties
  • Bow: I like pre-made bows at any craft store, because they are perfectly tied and hold up great

Through my experience, I liked the way the lemons on a stick looked. I wanted the lemons to be the main focus, but I also wanted a pop of green from the leaves too. They were able to be shaped into the wreath form and I just attached them with zip ties. Depending on the type of material the lemons are made out of, the hot glue may not actually hold them down. It drove me crazy! But it ended up being fine if when I attached them to something other than the other lemons.

Basically the only instructions I have for you is shape them around the wreath form and glue them down really well. If you use the branch, I suggest using the lemons on a stick and shaping them into the wreath and tying them with the zip ties. Once you have glued on enough lemons to make you need a glass of lemonade, add the finishing touches like a bow. I chose a classic black and white striped bow, which I might add looks incredible. Wired ribbon bows work the best and hold their form better than anything else. Just add a pipe cleaner to the bow and attach to the wreath! Voila! You have a PERFECT summer wreath!

I promise you it'll look darling up on your door and evoke such a sense of happiness whenever you walk back in the house from getting the mail. I am going to be so sad taking it off the door when the Fall rolls around, but for now, I will just smile and enjoy. 

Happy Memorial Day weekend! Enjoy the long weekend and time with your friends and family!
