Comments Off on DIY Valentine’s Day X and O 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.  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 garland that cost less than $5 to make and took less than 30 minutes to put together.

Here’s how I did it:

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

To Make X’s: Accordion fold two doilies, put them together, staple in the middle and fan out the tops and bottoms.

To Make O’s: Cut out the center of the doilies.

Optional: Leaving one doily untouched, you could place a foam heart sticker in the center and make that the middle piece for your garland.  However, if you like this idea but don’t want to use a foam sticker, you could dip a valentine’s themed stamp in some red ink and place that in the middle.  OR if you want to make it a little more personal you could apply your favorite shade of red lipstick, pucker up, and plant a kiss directly on the doily.

And there you have it, a quick and easy How-to on a quick and easy craft that will add just the right amount of Valentine’s Day flare to your everyday decor.

Much Love! XX Michelle

  • So I took your advice from my stories the other day and busted out a skin tight dress for @sequel_events’ photo shoot today. Not gonna lie, felt a little self conscious in it, but I also loved stepping out of my comfort zone and just having fun with these girls (aka absolute BABES!!)

  • Pretty sure I’m going to be getting my eyebrows microbladed next month. Been wanting to do this since I was pregnant with Evelyn, would love to hear your thoughts on it below 👇🏻👇🏻
  • Winter days that remind me of summer are my favourite.
  • As the weather gets nicer I am planning on getting out more and more with these two, side by side in our @bugaboostrollers. I found trying to go for walks for exercise with Sophie out of a stroller doesn’t amount for much exercise. It included a lot of rock discovering, bench sitting and flower sniffing.
•
What are some ways you plan to increase exercise this year?
