DIY Lemon-y Wreath

DSC_0711ecw title2Just before Memorial Day, I created a patriotic wreath to hang on one of the french doors leading to our front deck. Throughout the summer our front deck is quite sunny from sunrise until late afternoon. As a result of this sun exposure, by the time that the Fourth of July rolled around, my wreath was looking pretty faded, so I was ready to change it out for a different look. I gathered the necessary materials: a grapevine wreath, floral wire, wire cutters, faux lemon tree leaves, faux lemons, ribbon, and a hot glue gun.

I went to work attaching the greenery first using the floral wire.
