Comments Off on How to Make a DIY X & O Valentine’s Day Garland 

Hello dear readers of Creative Wife + Joyful Worker!  I am absolutely thrilled to be guest posting over here and featuring one of my favourite Valentine’s Day DIY projects.  If you follow me over at The Mumsy Blog, you may notice that I have already shared this project there, “DIY X & O Valentine’s Day Garland”.  But, I’m a firm believer in continually putting the things that you love out into the world to be shared with others.  So, I hope you enjoy!

For the longest time, I never really got into Valentine’s Day, even after I started having little chickies.   I would do a fun little craft/activity on the actual day of the holiday, and I would even purchase some store bought Valentines and candy for my chickies to hand out to their little group of toddler friends.  But, when it came to decorating my home, the only thing I did in lieu of decorations was hang a heart shaped felt wreath on my door.

This year I decided to branch out more and try my hand at some homemade decorations that wouldn’t break the bank and would also bring a tad bit more of a festive flare into my nest.  Along with a few more decorating ideas, that I will share later this month, I put together a very easy yet chic X’s and O’s Valentine’s Day Garland that cost less than $5 to make and took less than 30 minutes to put together.

How to Make a DIY X & O Valentine’s Day Garland

Materials:

  • 1 package of paper doilies
  • Butcher’s twine
  • Stapler and staples
  • Scissors
  • Optional: Heart shaped foam sticker

Directions:

  1. To Make X’s: Accordion fold two doilies, put them together, staple in the middle and fan out the tops and bottoms.
  2. To Make O’s: Cut out the center of the doilies.
  3. Optional: Leaving one doily untouched, you could place a foam heart sticker in the center and make that the middle piece for your doilie garland.  If you like this idea but don’t want to use a foam sticker, you could dip switch to using a Valentine’s Day themed stamp. Another fun idea would be to use your favorite shade of lipstick and pucker up. Place a kiss right in the middle of the O.

  • New hair, who dis?
  • We surprised Sophie at her birthday party and had a friend bring their pony over to give the kids rides. After the party she said “Mom can I have that exact same birthday party next year?”

Last week, @panago_pizza delivered the new @BeyondMeat vegan pizzas as well as the @Gardein Breaded Chick’n tenders!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Even though I’m not vegan myself, I’d heard so many great things about the new plant-based products from @panago_pizza I was so excited to give them a try! Out of the two new additions, the plant-based Beyond Spicy Calabrese was my favourite, and trust them when they say spicy.⁠⠀

  • Quick day trip to the island, I took a tip from all of you and wore my lulus in anticipation of a full belly.
  • Cheers to Thanksgiving friends 💫 💕 I’ve been so grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to contribute to 8+ of @ilikeherstylevancouver’s print magazine. They’ve created such a great space for women to connect, inspire and encourage. My last contribution shares how I wear summer dresses & rompers in the fall, and I must say is one of my cutest articles yet. Also big thanks to @juliechristinephotography for capturing such cutie shots I can never pick just one.

You can find the print mag at all their rack locations (see details on website) or online.
  • What a joy it was to go out yesterday and show my support to two ladies who are such incredible women, role models, mamas, creators ... seriously all the things.

Can’t wait to flip through the pages of #fraichefoodfullhearts cookbook and be inspired to make some new things. Such a pleasure to celebrate with you both @jillian.harris & @fraichenutrition — you both radiate love and joy.
