When life gives you lemons.. make Lemon Bunting. I wanted to make a fun Lemon Bunting Garland for my decorative Lemonade stand, so I whipped one up using two different shapes for the lemons. This garland is great for not only a Lemonade Stand but also, summer decor and summer parties or even use the lemon appliques as decoration on other items.
