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 get started, trim the lemon branches and flowers so the stems are only a few inches long. Add Branches to Wreath PHOTO: Jacob Fox PHOTO: Jacob Fox Once you've trimmed the stems, tuck each lemon branch into the grapevine wreath, securing the stems with hot glue as you go. Keep in mind that if your wreath is facing the sun, the glue may melt. In that case, you'll want to secure with florists wire as well. Continue working around the wreath, evenly spacing the lemon branches. Add artificial flowers and faux greenery to any open spaces, leaving a gap at the bottom for a bow.
