Little Love Shack - DIY Heart Flower Wreath

I am a firm believer that the best way to get over the end of one holiday is to jump head first into the next one aka holiday junkie.  And would you believe Valentine's Day is only one month from today??  Time to get crackin'
I got this little plastic playhouse as a hand me down from my step sister and then decided to give it a makeover.  I used spray paint to give it a new fresh look and it was super easy to do.  Usually I try to keep our décor pretty neutral, but my love of all things pink and girly cannot be contained during this holiday! Sorry Chad and Jack.  I used to be super crafty and lately I have majorly slacked in that department (thanks to two kids I guess).  I wanted a cute wreath to hang on the play house and I just couldn't find what I wanted so I decided to dust off the old hot glue gun and give it a shot.  I had some paper flowers that I found at target on clearance last fall (that were actually napkin holders), but you could use any kind of fake flowers to make this.  I used a wire clothes hanger to make the shape of the heart and some wire cutters to clip off the excess and twist the end tight.

The heart doesn't have to be perfect since you will make the final shape with the flowers.  I simply put a little hot glue on the back of the flowers and glued them one at a time to the wire until I had the look I was going for.  I took a piece of twine and made a loop and glued that to the top to hang it by.  The whole project took maybe 10 minutes and viola, flower wreath!!!
I also love to support small shops and it just so happens that two of my very favorite shops have the absolute cutest VDay pretties right now.  The woolie ball garland is from The Whimsical Woolies and the conversation heart banner is from Glitter Party CO.  They added the perfect flair to our little love shack!




I found the little hanging window basket at hobby lobby and I hot glued command hooks to hold it in place.  That was Olivia's favorite part. She totally doesn't mind that the flowers are fake ;)

I have so much fun with this little house and I love to decorate it for every season and holiday!  If you have any more questions, just ask!  Happy Sunday friends!
