Lemons, Lemonade, and Lights!

May 17, 2019

As the temperatures rise so does the need for for a tall, cold glass of sweet lemonade. Looking for a great way to re-purpose those Christmas lights in the summer? This is the perfect project to accent a table or counter top.


We chose LED craft lights on brown wire to blend in beautifully with our tray.

We found these faux lemons at a local hobby store. They look so real they’ll make your guests do a double-take.

You probably already have a tray like this at home. If not, hit a housewares store for a tray that will work for this project and serving tea in the Fall.

A fun sign celebrating lemonade.

We found this sign at the Target Dollar Spot. We are always amazed at the fun things we find there right as we walk through the door. Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Dillards, Home Goods, and Neimans are also fine places to shop for home decor!


Unroll the lights and arrange in the tray. There is no wrong way to do this.

Add the lemons. (If this project is for a kitchen counter and you happen to live in a part of the country with citrus, by all means, use real!)

Play with this until it looks natural. Don’t be afraid to bend or cut or cut stems to achieve the look that looks right to your eye.

Add the sign.

Place on the kitchen counter top, Pour a glass of lemonade, and enjoy the summer.
