DIY Lemon and Flower Arrangement
This easy DIY Lemon Flower Arrangement takes just a few minutes and packs a big design punch. Flowers, lemons, and a couple of vases are all you need!
One of my favorite things about spring and summer is being able to walk outside and cut fresh flowers. However, there are times of the year when nothing is blooming, so I pick up some beautiful flowers at the grocery store. This DIY lemon flower arrangement is easy, super fast to put together, and can be made with any kind of flowers. If you have herbs growing, or can find some at your grocery, they would look great as well.

DIY Lemon Flower Arrangement Supplies Needed
- Two clear vases, sized so one fits inside the other. (6 x 12 inch clear vase | 4 x 10 inch clear vase | footed hurricane vase)
- Garden shears
- Fresh flowers
I searched around the house and found two clear vases that were sized correctly for this arrangement. Any vases will work as long as they are clear, and one is bigger than the other. The smaller vase must fit inside the bigger vase, with enough room in between the vases to fit slices of fruit. The size of this arrangement is a personal choice, and depends on your vases. It can be small, or very large, depending on where you want to use it.
- Step 1: Place the smaller vase inside the bigger one.
- Step 2: Slice your lemons about 1/4 inch thick. The number of lemons you need depends on the size of your vases.
- Step 3: Place the lemon slices between the small vase and the large vase. Use a long skewer to move them around so they are spread out evenly.
- Step 4: Pour fresh water into both vases. The lemons should be completely immersed.
- Step 5: Arrange flowers and herbs of your choice and voila! A beautiful, easy DIY lemon flower arrangement that will last for days.
DIY Lemon Flower Arrangement Tips
- After the outer vase with the lemons is filled with water, the inner vase may start to float. Just add water to the inner vase and it will steady itself.
- Get plenty of lemons. For this arrangement, I purchased a bag of ten small lemons and used eight. Make sure to remove the seeds from the slices.
- Any type of citrus fruit can be used. Lemons, limes, oranges or even pink grapefruit (if your vases are large enough.)
- To get a little extra life out of any flower arrangement, when the blooms start to droop, cut all the ends off about an inch and change the water.
- Tap water works fine for the inner vessel that holds the flowers. Using distilled or bottled water to cover the lemons may add an extra day or two to the life of your arrangement.
