How exciting that summer is just around the corner. I don’t know about all of you, but I’m ready for the warmth, new poolside memories, and drinking lots of lemonade with ice. These thoughts are what sparked the idea of this lemon home decor theme. Something bright and happy for all my yellow color loving crafty friends.

Lemon Boats, Signs, Bouquets, & Gingham
The first 4 projects I made are so cute. I started by making a miniature scale. Then I created a couple of darling little lemon boats, followed by a gingham patterned heart. Finally , I created a miniature bouquet of flowers, using a pretty doily I picked up from the Dollar Tree.
Note that the display on the scale, the sails on the lemon boats, and the gingham pattern on the heart are all available in the free printables linked above.
Up next is a Gingham patterned jar, two 2×2 inch signs, a miniature farmhouse floral bucket, and a lemon wood round. The funny thing is, once I got going, it was so much fun thinking of farmhouse decor on a tiny scale. All of these project cost less than a dollar each and I really had a blast making them into a coordinating theme for my tiered tray.
The last 2 miniatures include these fabric lemons, and a “Fresh Lemonade” tag. Both of these make use of my free printables linked above.
Tiered Tray Display
I like to collect tiered trays and I knew this trayI picked up from Amazon Amazon would look amazing with the farmhouse lemon theme that I created. The distressed white look really appeals to me, and the bottom tray is great for taller wider decor. I also love this tray because it comes with a few different handles that I can switch out whenever I want for upcoming seasons and holidays.
If you like the tray as well and would like to decorate your own, you can find it on Amazon HERE. A quick disclosure. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. This just means that if you click on the Amazon link above and make a purchase, I may receive a small commission at no cost to you.
In the TUTORIAL VIDEO that coordinates with these projects, you can see me style the tray. If you haven’t tried styling a tiered tray, you should. Especially if you live in a smaller home. It’s a great way to get a decor feel for certain seasons without having too much stuff out. It’s nice to combine the theme into an organized space. You can place it on a entry table, a dining room table, or even a kitchen counter.
Squeeze The Day & Farm Fresh Signs
Just for fun, I decided to add these 3 signs to go with the theme. All are SUPER easy to make and they all cost only $1 each to make. I think I personally love how the “SQUEEZE the day” sign turned out when paired with the Yellow stripe sign. They make me so happy!
For the Farm Fresh sign I added large popsicle sticks to the front of the printable to make the lemons look like they are in a wooden crate. It gives it a really CUTE 3D look.
Last is this lemon garland. I can totally see this as a table runner or on a mantel. You could also hang it up over a door or on a decor shelf. All super cute and fun places to style it. It took me very little time to create this project and I saved myself a ton of money by DIYing it.
