$1- Valentine's Wreath

I never liked my "Bella Swan Lives here Wreath", but it took me 2 years to get around to making another one. 

I just ripped off the paper pinwheels (they were looking a little weather worn) from my Mother's Day Wreath and just started making and hot gluing on a bunch of random scrappy bows and buttons. 

I painted the roof red and used this technique to age the wood

The only thing I bought new was the wooden birdhouse, so the entire project cost $1.  I toyed w/ the idea of adding red burlap birds, but they just didn't look right.

Somehow my front porch has ended up w/ a birds and the bees Valentine theme:) 


  1. Love a good wreath project and love this one especially! Nice job!

  2. Very cute - love the little birdhouse!
