Valentine’s Day X’s and O’s

Jared built this shelf for me and I wanted to put some Valentine decor on it, so this is what I came up with today (I actually saw something similar to it at Tatertots and Jello, but tweaked it a little bit)!
Time is short when you are a mom of two toddlers . . . so here is my one hour $10 craft! I picked up these lovely frames at a thrift store for $4. I took them out back to spray paint them black ($1 for the paint from Walmart).
These letters were at Hobby Lobby. I wanted my X’s and O’s to all be different, so I ended up paying $4 for the four of them. However, you wanted them to be the same, they sell them in packs of 2 for $1. I painted them red and white . . .
Then I picked up some Valentine paper ($1 for all 4 sheets). I cut them out to the size of the frame and glued the paper on. Then I popped these back into their frames and glued the wood letters on (I threw away the glass that came with the frames).
The finished product! Cheap, quick, and easy!

  2. Those are so CUTE! I am such a fan of your blog, and this project is no exception. I have a 3 year old, so I totally understand the need for cheap and quick; this is fabulous. It would absolutely make my day if you'd be willing to share here when you get a chance:
