How to do it

Step 1

Trim Lemon Branches

Before you begin building the large lemon wreath, pick up a few artificial lemon branches ($18, 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 get started, trim the lemon branches and flowers so the stems are only a few inches long.

Step 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. 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.

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 florists wire, then hang up your lemon door wreath to display.
