Welcome to my impromptu new series, It’s Still Summer! There is no place on earth that loves Fall more than Blogland…but I’m not ready to let summer go just yet. I’ve come up with a few ideas to keep summer around for just a bit longer. First up is a Lemon and Burlap Wreath.
This was a really fun project because I had almost everything I needed and it was fast. I started with 2 grapevine wreaths wired together, one on top of the other. Stacking gives a door wreath so much added depth.
I picked up this greenery garland at Hobby Lobby because it reminded me of Rosemary. When I saw it I just knew it was the right choice. I also got some 8 inch burlap ribbon.
I gathered everything else I needed and started by attaching the garland to the wreath in about 5 places with florist wire. Next I made a burlap bow following my tutorial on How To Make a Perfect Bow. I attached the bow to the wreath with twine.
All that was left to do was attach the lemons in clusters around the bow. I took my hole punch and drove a hole through each lemon so I could insert a piece of wire. I then just wired the lemons on the wreath.
This whole project from start to finish took about an hour. My family will tell you that I am sort of obsessed with wreaths…and I have to agree. I love making and re-making them. To me, there is nothing that says “welcome” better than a wreath on a front door.
My little shadow was, of course, on the porch for the photo shoot. I’ll be back tomorrow with features from our Blitzed on Pinterest party. I actually remembered this time! Then on Friday I’ll have another idea for keeping summer around just a little longer. See you then…
