Just 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.
A few days later the lemons started to fall off. The sun was causing the hot glue to soften and the lemons would drop. So, I re-attached the lemons using glue that wouldn’t be susceptible to the effects of the sun. So far, no more lemons have fallen off.
