The look of fresh lemons just makes me think of summer. Their bright yellow color adds a special spark to a summer look. Today I am going to share a super simple and inexpensive way to add the freshness of lemons to a vase for any summer occasion.
Super Simple Lemon Vase
What you will need to create your Lemon Vase:
Vase (a mason jar works perfectly for this project)
Plastic bag – a heavy freezer storage bag works well
Heavy rubber band
Fresh flowers – I used a simple bunch of baby’s breath
Insert the plastic bag into your vase.
Once the bag has been inserted into the vase, fill the bag with fresh water.
Slice your lemons into thin sections.
Using a spatula or wooden spoon, work your lemons into the vase BETWEEN the side of the vase and the bag you have inserted.
Continue to work the slices of lemon around the vase until you have filled the vase with the lemon slices.
Fold the edges of the plastic bag over the top of the vase and secure around the vase with a heavy rubber band.
Once you have secured the bag on the top of the vase, trim the bag to about a half inch from the rubber band.
Add a decorative ribbon or raffia to the top of your lemon vase to cover the rubber band.
Insert the flowers of your choice into the water in your vase.
This makes a lovely summer arrangement for your table, kitchen counter, or any special event. Check out where I have used it HERE in my Citrus Tablescape. The Lemon Vase would work well for summer weddings and showers. And the fresh scent of lemons in the air adds a special touch.
I added a few faux lilies and used it here for an added touch to an evening on the porch.
And there you have a super simple Lemon Vase to add a wonderful summer look.
What simple ways do you have for adding a touch of summer to your home?
