Lemon grapevine wreath with blue and white florals
A DIY grapevine wreath like this is perfect for everyday use. And it seems especially fitting as a summer wreath. Lemons always make me think of fresh lemonade on a hot summer day. So sweet and refreshing! The lemons also give a pop of bright color that you don’t always find in an everyday wreath.

When you watch the video tutorial you’ll see that I use a simple 2 ribbon bow for this wreath. I love the simplicity of the bow against the beautiful florals and lemon picks. If you would rather have a bigger or more complex bow though, go for it! I didn’t want to overpower the lemon ribbon in my bow but if you don’t have lemon ribbon or you want to add more colors that is totally ok. If you are looking for more bow tutorials we have a ton!

Tips for working with florals
If you are like me and love deco mesh wreaths you may be a little nervous about working with florals and greenery. Don’t worry though, you can do this! The biggest thing you need to remember when working with these is to fluff those bad boys out. When you get a greenery or floral spray it is pretty flat. All the stems are wired though which means you can bend and fluff them. Doing that makes a huge difference in the way they display. All of a sudden your flat flowers have a beautiful and natural look!
- Start with the 2.5" ribbon and measure a 12" tail, twist the ribbon and then add it to the bowmaker. Then make a 6" loop, twist the ribbon and add it to the bowmaker. Then trim an 8" tail.
- Next, take the 1.5" ribbon and do the same thing but make 2 loops this time.
- Then, use the 2.5" ribbon again and make your two tails the same way but make your loops slightly smaller this time.
- For the final layer, use the 1.5" ribbon and make 2 tails and one loop.
- Take two pipe cleaners and twist the ends together to make one long pipe cleaner. Remove your bow from the bow maker and use the long pipe cleaner to secure the center of the bow twisting it off at the back.
Blue and White Florals with Lemon Grapevine Wreath
- Start by trimming your ficus down to 4 smaller pieces and then using hot glue to add them to a "corner" of the grapevine base.
- Next, add your bow to the center of your ficus using the pipe cleaner to attach it to the grapevine.
- Fluff out your lemon pick and then add it to the wreath under one side of the bow using hot glue to secure it in place. Then repeat on the other side of the bow. Then work your last lemon pick in to fill it out.
- Next, fluff out your blue filler flowers and trim them into smaller sections. Use the hot glue to secure it to the wreath behind the lemon picks.
- Use the scissors to dovetail your ribbon ends on the bow.
- Now make some fake ribbon tails to add into the wreath. To do this cut a strip of the 2.5" ribbon and make one loop with two tails. Then do the same thing with the 1.5" ribbon and use a pipe cleaner to secure the two together. Next, add this to the wreath using the pipe cleaners and then trim the tails.
- Next, trim down your white flower filler and fluff them out. Use the hot glue to add them to the wreath and finish filling it in.
Y’all, I’m loving the way this lemon wreath turned out! As you saw in the video, I had to roll with the punches when it came to finishing this wreath. I’m glad you got to see that though, now you’ll know what to do if you get a little to happy with one part of your wreath and need to go back in to balance it out. Remember, there are very few wreath making mistakes that can’t be easily fixed with some hot glue!
