When I built my house three years ago, I designed it with a neutral kitchen. The cabinets and countertops are white, the appliances are stainless and the penny tile backsplash is a medium gray.
I love it.
One of the reasons that I’ve enjoyed it so much is that I can easily change a few items out to create a completely different look in my kitchen.
During the holidays it’s full of red and green, over the summer it’s sported a bit of navy, but recently I’ve really wanted to incorporate some brighter details.
This week I’ve joined several friends in creating a summer wreath as part of Krista’s Seasonal Simplicity Series.
I incorporated bright yellow lemons – it’s perfect for perking up my kitchen!

DIY Lemon Wreath
The elements I incorporated into this wreath are easy to find and relatively inexpensive if you’re a craft store coupon shopper like I am. To make things easier on you though, I’ve included links to all of the items used below!
Here’s what you will need to recreate this lemon wreath:
10″ Grapevine Wreath
Green English Ivy (1 Bunch)
Large Yellow Lemons (1 Bag)
Mini Yellow Lemons (1 Bag)
Fern and Eucalyptus Bundle (1 Bunch)
Navy Filler (1 Stem) I used something I had on hand, but this navy stem would also work nicely.
Yellow and White Grosgrain Ribbon
Floral Wire Cutters
Glue Gun + Hot Glue
How to make a lemon wreath:
- Start your project with a plain wreath form. I used a 10″ grapevine wreath.
I use a grapevine wreath more often than not, because it’s so easy to attach additional elements to the wreath with minimal wire and glue!
- Add base greenery to the wreath form.
For this wreath, I used a small spray of itty bitty English Ivy. It covered the grapevine wreath nicely and provided a nice base for texture.
Once the ivy was down I added additional greenery to build up the wreath. For individual stems like to use hot glue on the end of the stem and anchor it in the grapevine branches.
- Add lemons to the wreath.
I used larger lemons at the bottom of the wreath to provide some weight and hold things down visually. The smaller lemons were placed around the remainder of the wreath.
I only used a portion of each package on my wreath. The rest are spread through the kitchen as decor.
- Fill in any empty spots with additional navy floral stem and its leaves.
- Define the top of the wreath with a pretty yellow and white bow.
This is such a perfect punch of color for my sunshine filled kitchen. I don’t know why I waited so long to create it!
