So I know I am late to the game on posting summer DIY’s.
However, it IS still technically summer, so I am just gonna go ahead and start sharing my recent projects with you! I have a few outdoor themed posts coming that I’m excited to show you.
But today, I am going to share this simple tutorial on how to make a DIY dollar store summer lemon wreath!
DIY DOLLAR STORE SUMMER LEMON WREATH
MATERIALS YOU’LL NEED:

- Wreath frame
- Burlap roll
- Faux yellow flowers & white gypso flowers
- Faux lemons (I used three)
- Beading or floral wire
- Wire cutters
& HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO DO:
1. Wrap wreath frame with burlap
Luckily, I had just enough burlap left over from my window treatment project to fit on the wreath!
I secured it with tape, and in step 3 I secured it with wire as well.
2. Cut faux flowers with wire cutters & tuck them into the burlap
I love doing it this way as opposed to gluing the flowers on, because it makes it easy to change out the flowers depending on the season or your mood! 🙂
3. Stick the lemons onto the burlap & secure them with wire
It might be tricky to see what’s going on in this picture.
But what I did was take thin beading wire, tie it around the faux stem of the lemon, & then I pulled it through the burlap & tied it off.
Looking better here, right?
4. Fill in gaps with white flower buds
I may be wrong, but I think these lovely faux white buds are supposed to be faux baby’s breath? Well whatever they are, they sure are cute!
I used them to fill in the gaps between the lemons & the yellow flowers & I love how it turned out.
As you can see in the picture below, as a last step I wrapped it with some yellow ribbon I’d had sitting around for ages. Like, for at least eight years. It felt good to use that stuff up!
I keep going back & forth between keeping it this way or having the wreath be just burlap, but because the husband likes this version better it’s staying this way for now. 😉
I can’t believe that I made this out of things either from the dollar store, or they were things I already had on hand! My overall favorite parts might just be the lemons & the burlap.
My last wreath project was a rustic fall wreath & I think it turned out pretty well. But I think my skills might be improving just a teensy bit. Or maybe I’m just biased because I have a thing for yellow decor in my home during the spring & summer months? (See my simple spring centerpiece here that also has yellow flowers!)
