Do It Yourself: Lemon Citrus Wreath for a Summer Door 🍋
Last Monday, I spent the morning browsing the internet for a lemon wreath. I think they’re so refreshing and the perfect touch for a summer door. I was taken back at the price tags that went up to $300. I won’t pay anything over $50 for a wreath, especially if it’s only going to be on my front door for a few months. I decided that I was going to just make my own. Plus, making wreaths is such fun. There’s nothing more satisfying than displaying something you made yourself in your home. I’m going to be making a 4th of July wreath next week, so stay tuned for that one!
I filmed the tutorial as well since it’s sometimes easier to SEE than reading. If you’re anything like me, I’m a “watch and do” type of person.
All you need to make this wreath:
– Lemon Leaf Garland
– Twig Wreath
– Faux Lemons
– Floral Accents
– Scissors / Wire Cutters
– Hot Glue Sticks
– Hot Glue Gun
– Floral Wire
I purchased all the items at Hobby Lobby. Right now, ALL of their summer and garden decor is on sale, plus they have the 40% coupon online (always.)
My door gets really hot in the afternoons because of the sun, so I made sure to attach all of the items (minus the lemons) with the floral wire. Some of the little floral accents can be tucked into the twig wreath without glue, which makes the process way faster. I didn’t want the hot glue to melt and my wreath to fall apart. This wreath took about 25-minutes to make!
Fun fact: I’ve never been good at making bows that go on wreaths, so I assemble it all by glue! I cut the pieces to make them look like a bow. I showed you the process in the video, but it’s definitely a good hack if you’re like me and can’t tie a bow!
I loved how it turned out! 😊 I think it could be cute with little oranges, too! Maybe I’ll try that next year. If you want a little bit more color, you can try adding faux lavender accents. I was so close to doing it but chickened out.
The lemon wreath is also a cute budget-friendly gift idea! 🍋
I hope you enjoy the video tutorial and get inspired to make your own wreath! If you do, don’t forget to tag me in your photos! I love seeing your creations. 💜 🍋
