Easy-to-Make Zesty Lemon Wreath
Add a little zest to your front door this summer with a vibrant, citrusy wreath. Because when life gives you lemons, craft them into a wreath.
- silk greenery
- silk filler flower
- faux lemons
- 16" wire wreath form
- wire cutters
- hot glue gun & sticks
- floral wire
- wooden floral picks
Start by snipping the greenery bundles into multiple, smaller sections (Image 1). Choosing a broad-leaf-greenery variety, like faux magnolia leaves, will help provide a base for the garland while also filling in holes. For this project, we paired the magnolia leaves with silk pothos greenery and silk smilax. Separate the faux clippings into easy-to-grab piles (Image 2).
Begin creating the garland by working in sections. Combine the greenery sprigs into a small bunch, placing the broad-leaf greenery at the back (Image 1). Bind the stems together using floral wire (Image 2). Continue this pattern until you have enough garland to cover the wreath form (Image 3).
Attach the garland to the wreath form using floral wire. Secure the greenery in multiple spots around the wreath to ensure it stays put.
Fill in Holes
Fill in any holes by gluing in loose stems of greenery. Optional: Add in accents of wispy greenery throughout for a free-form feel.
Add Accent Blooms
To create dimension, glue in white accent blooms using a hot glue gun. Continue all around the wreath.
Insert wooden picks into the base of each lemon (Image 1). Here, we’ve used lemons in a variety of sizes to add visual interest. Cut each pick to around 2-3 inches and glue into the garland. Add in the fruit in all directions and groupings. (Image 2). The more lemons, the merrier!
Display Indoors or Out
Using a wreath hanger or sticky hook, place the completed wreath on your front door, an exterior wall or fencepost or any interior space that could use a cheery, citrusy pop of color.
