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. 6 Fake Plants That Look Like the Real Thing, but Without the Work PHOTO: Jacob Fox PHOTO: Jacob Fox 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.
