When Life Gives You Lemons

When I received the new issue of HGTV Magazine in the mail, the first thing I noticed was the lemon wreath featured on the cover. Great, I thought. Perhaps there’s a tutorial inside about making the wreath. Unfortunately all there was was a price tag of over $100 to buy it on Etsy. 

Love the wreath, but not the price!

I decided I could make my own wreath to brighten up our front door and entryway. I searched for a few styles online and decided on a more simplified design. I picked out a grapevine wreath, a small bunch of lemons on sticks and some greenery along with a sheer aqua ribbon at the craft store.
Here’s how I put it all together:

1. I played around with the placement of the lemons and greens until I was satisfied then snipped off some length and hot glued each piece onto the wreath.

2. I cut the ribbon and made a bow to add in around the lemon and greens cluster.

3. I used another small loop of ribbon to tie around the top of the wreath to hang from door. 

I think it will look great with our new blue door (pics to come!)
Easy to make and the materials cost less than $20! What have you recently been inspired to create?
