This quick DIY summer lemon arrangement can be put together in minutes! It’s a really easy way to add a splash of color to your home.
DIY summer lemon arrangement
Summertime is all about sunshine and lemonade! That’s exactly what this super-quick floral arrangement reminds me of. With bright and cheerful lemons pouring out of the florist box, it looks like they are juicy and ready to be picked.
This is one of my favorite summer floral arrangements! I love the colors so much. Plus, it is perfect to set outside on my patio or even inside with my other lemon decor.
Plus, it’s often a good idea to sell silk floral arrangements along with wreaths on Etsy. They ship easier and give people more options.

How to make a lemon table arrangement – Step by step tutorial
1. Prep your container
The very first step is to prepare your container for the arrangement. Does your container have an obvious front and back? Some containers will have graphics or images on the front. If yours does, keep this in mind as you design it.
Then, insert the florist foam blocks. I dipped my foam into melted glue sticks and glued it to the bottom of the container. This way, the foam won’t move around as I insert the greenery.
Keep adding foam until it reaches the top of your container. Fill your container completely with the foam too. You might have to cut some blocks into thinner shapes to fit on the container’s sides.
2. Cover blocks with moss
Fill the top of your container with faux moss. Make sure you cover the foam blocks completely. Keep adding moss to the corners and every side of the container so you can’t see the foam blocks anymore.
3. Add greenery
Start with a piece of green fern, cutting at an angle, to help with easy insertion into foam. Dip in hot glue and insert directly into the foam and place it in the center of the container.
Cut your greenery at different heights to make it appear more natural. Fill in a section of your foam.
4. Layer with lemon sprays
Separate the lemon sprays with wire cutters. Trim them so they fit nicely into your container. Then, dip the ends of the lemon sprays into your hot glue and secure them into the foam blocks.
Bend the stems and spray the lemon pieces in different directions to give them a more realistic look.
5. Add white filler flowers
After you are satisfied with how the lemons look, fill in the empty spots with white wax flowers. I used pushers, meaning they are able to be pushed up or down depending on how much length you want.
Trim them to be the perfect size for your container and insert them throughout the lemon sprays.
6. Fill in with more greenery
In addition to the fern at the base and the lemon leaves, I used a third type of greenery in this lemon arrangement. Layer these greenery picks throughout the white filler flowers and lemon sprays, making it look as full as you want it.
I also keep balance in mind. When you work on one side, immediately repeat that same action on the other side.
7. Fill and finalize
You could stop here or keep going. Continue adding more lemon sprays or white filler flowers. Since you already established your shape at the beginning, all that is left is to fill in the empty spots.
Keep fluffing and adding more florals or greenery to make it as showy and full as you like it.
