    Trim Lemon Wreath Branches

    Before building the large lemon wreath, pick up a few artificial lemon branches ($13, Walmart) and a few small faux white flowers. If your lemon branches don't come with a lot of leaves, you may also want to grab some faux leafy greenery as well. When you're ready to start, trim the lemon branches and flowers, so the stems are only a few inches long.

  2. Add Branches to Wreath

    Once you've trimmed the stems, tuck each lemon branch into the grapevine wreath, securing the stems with hot glue as you go. Remember that if your wreath faces the sun, the adhesive may melt. In that case, you'll also want to secure it with florist wire. Continue working around the wreath, evenly spacing the lemon branches. Finally, add artificial flowers and faux greenery to any open spaces, leaving a gap at the bottom for a bow.

  3. Create Bow

    Cut a wide ribbon to length and tie the ribbon into a classic bow. Secure the finished bow to the bottom of the wreath using florist wire, then hang up your lemon door wreath to display.
