Isn’t it cute?!?! Let’s make one together. Here’s what you’ll need…

 

Supplies for ‘XO’ Valentine Wood Heart Décor Tutorial:

  • Wood Letters – ‘X’ and ‘O’ – I found these pre-painted ones at Michaels craft store
  • Wood Hearts – I got a 28 pack from Michaels as well
  • Pink spray paint – I used the color ‘Ballet slipper’
  • Hot glue gun/hot glue sticks

  • Save

Instructions:

Start off by arranging the little wood hearts on top of the ‘O’ letter (I used a flattened cardboard box to protect the ground while spray painting).

  • Save

Spray paint about 1-2 feet away, coating the letter and the hearts well.

  • Save
  • Save

Once the paint has dried (about 1-2 hours later) gently remove all the wooden hearts.

  • Save

Just look at how adorable that ‘O’ is!

  • Save

It makes me want to spray paint little hearts on everything I own!

  • Save

Set the letter aside and lay the hearts on the cardboard.

  • Save

Spray paint another coat of paint till the hearts are covered. Let dry for 1 to 2 hours. (If your hearts look well coated after spraying the first time you can skip this step).

  • Save

Once the hearts are done drying, arrange them on your letter ‘X’ and heat up your glue gun.

  • Save

One by one pick each heart up and put a small dab of glue on the back side and press back into place on the letter. Be careful during this step not to put too much glue on the back of your heart or it will ooze out the sides when attaching to the letter.

Let the hot glue dry and you’re all set!! You just completed your very own ‘XO’ Valentine Home Decor piece. Set them on the mantle or attach them to a wall by using some command strips.
