Summer wreaths are the perfect inspiration for bringing in warm vibes and gorgeous colors! To make a summer wreath you just need to think about all things summer can offer and of its colors. To me, summer is about beaches and the sea, but also about the abundance of delicious, fresh summer fruits. So just go ahead and make a gorgeous fruit arrangements wreath for example to welcome the perhaps best season of the year. The steps are easy to follow and the supplies needed are basic.

Wreath Making Directions:
- Start by cutting the greenery and flower stems, leaving 4-5 inches of stem, so you can use it to stick the greenery and flowers into the wreath.
- Pock a hole into each lemon. Be careful not to poke all the way through the other side of the lemon. You can add a drop of hot glue to the point where the pick enters the lemon, to secure.
- Lay the wreath form on your work surface and start arranging your items loosely so you can find the arrangement you like. Make sure to not forget the ribbon for hanging. You will have to tie the ribbon around the wreath and make a loop for hanging before making anything else. When you are happy with how your wreath looks, insert the greenery into the wreath. You can use hot glue if needed. Next, insert the lemons, adding hot glue if necessary.
You can use other types of wreath forms as well, like foam wreath forms. Just make sure to fill in any gaps with some greenery so they don’t show.
Also, think about using fresh lemons, greenery and flowers instead of artificial ones. This will make your wreath having a wonderful fragrance, although its life span will be significantly shorter.
Summer wreaths for celebrating the warmest season
