As we move into the month of love this year, I’ve been having fun getting ready! I shared my tutorial on how to turn a cardboard roll into a mini album for a great DIY Valentine’s Day gift and then showed you how to make this felt rosette Valentine’s Day wreath, you can check out all my fun Valentine's day projects here.
I’m sharing a cute reclaimed wood & heart DIY XOXO Valentine’s Day decor today. I had so much fun putting together this super simple DIY XOXO with some supplies from the Dollar Tree.
4 pieces of reclaimed wood cut at approximately 15 inches
String, jute, ribbon or baker's twine
2 heart wire wreath forms - I got mine at Dollar Tree
3 Valentine's Day print scarves - another find at Dollar Tree
Approx. 18 feet of red burlap ribbon
Time: 15 Minutes Cost: $8 Difficulty: Easy
Step 1. Cover the first wreath with the Valentine's Day print scarves. I just simply tied them onto the wire form and started wrapping them around the form. I just continued by adding the next scarf tied to the first. Once you get all the way around the heart, just tuck the end of the scarf into the back.
Step 2. Cover the second wreath with the burlap ribbon. I actually used scotch tape to secure the burlap ribbon in place. I like to try to make my seasonal decorations as temporary as possible, just in case I want to use the supplies for something else during the year! I continued wrapping the ribbon around the wreath and just tucked it into the back of the wreath.
Step 3. Cut your reclaimed wood down to size (approximately 15 inches).
Step 4. Tie your wood pieces together in an "x" shape. I used some cute red and tan rustic baker's twine, but you can really use any other type of ribbon or string.
Step 5. Step back and give yourself on a pat on the back. You did it... told you it was simple!
