Discover how easy it is to make a summer lemon wreath on grapevine when you use a wreath kit from Trendy Tree. Whether you are just beginning to make wreaths or you need some fresh ideas, this kit is the perfect solution.

DIY Lemon Wreath On Grapevine

Lemons are a quintessential summertime fruit. From ice-cold lemonade to lemon meringue pie, you just can’t think of lemons without also picturing the warm sunshine and vacation days.

That’s why I’m not at all surprised that Trendy Tree put together a lemon wreath kit for the summer. I love making wreaths from their kits. They include everything except the wreath base so you can build and craft your own work of art.

Check out the kit from Trendy Tree if you are short on inspiration (or if you just enjoy getting all the ribbons and greenery in one place!). In this tutorial, I’ll show you how I created a summertime wreath from the items inside their lemon wreath kit.

DIY Lemon Wreath On Grapevine: Step-By-Step Tutorial

1. Prep And Attach Sign

I always start with the sign. Since it’s the largest focal point, it’s the item I will use to design all my greenery and ribbons around.

Place the sign where you want people’s eyes to look first. This can be at the very top of the wreath or to the side. I placed the welcome lemon sign on the right-hand side of the wreath.

The best way to attach the sign to the grapevine wreath is to thread the wire through the sign and then push it through the grapevine brambles. Then, twist the wires tightly so the sign is secured and won’t wiggle.

When you place the wires through the wreath instead of around the outside, you will leave more space for the greenery and ribbons to attach.

2. Make A Bow

Next, make the bow (or bows) for your wreath. I made a very simple bow to offset and balance the large dominant sign on the wreath.

Start by making your streamer – I dovetailed the end of the streamer to give it a finished look. I made an 18-inch streamer. If that looks too long when you add it to the wreath, you can always trim it back.

Then, measure the ribbon out another 12 inches and fold it in half, making a 6-inch loop. I made three loops out of the 2 1/2-inch ribbon.

Then, repeat the same steps with the 1 1/2-inch ribbon. Secure all your loops and tails together with the florist’s wire.

Watch my video below to see how I made the bows, or read this tutorial for specific step-by-step directions.

3. Attach Your Bow

Use the wire you used to secure the bow together and thread that wire through the grapevine on the other side of your wreath, directly across from the sign. Then, twist the wire together.

Make sure you take the time to fluff and arrange your bow โ€“ this step is what really makes your bow look pretty!

4. Add Sunflower Lemon Picks

Before you add the greenery and flowers, place the wreath on your easel so you can see what it will look like when you hang it up on a door. Then, you can still adjust the placement of your bow and sign if you need to.

Trim the sunflower lemon bouquets, so they are short enough to fit into the grapevine base without sticking out too much.

Dip the bottom of the bunch into your melted hot glue and stick it into the wreath above the bow. If your flowers are too loose on top, zip-tie them to the top.

Add the second lemon and sunflower bunch beneath the bow, pointing towards the sign.

5. Fill In With More Greenery

If you need to, add a steel pick to the bottom of your loose greenery pieces. Then, dip them in hot glue and insert them into the empty spaces around the florals and other greenery stems.

6. Add Filler Flowers

Now it’s time to add a few filler flowers. These are flowers with smaller buds that have some pops of cream or yellow. Dip them into the glue and layer them throughout your existing floral and lemon picks.

7. Final Touches

You can stop here, or you can keep going and add more layers to your wreath. Keep adjusting it until it is perfected to your liking.
