Step 1. Cover the first Xoxo Decor heart wreath with the Valentine’s Day print scarves.
Simply tie the scarves onto the wire heart form and start wrapping them around the form.
You can add the next scarf by tying it to the end of the first one.
Once you get all the way around the heart, tuck the end of the scarf into the back. I used 3 scarves to cover the heart wreath.
Step 2. Cover the second heart wreath with a red burlap ribbon.
Next, you can cover the other heart wreath with a red burlap ribbon.
I actually just 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!
Continue wrapping the ribbon around the wreath until it is completely covered, and then just tucked the end into the back of the wreath.
Step 3. Cut pallet wood down to size.
You’ll see 4 pieces cut to 15″ in length.
Now there are a few different options on ways to do this.
- Use a circular or miter saw to cut the length of pallet wood to 15″
- Use a hack saw or hand saw if you don’t want to get out the big guns for a few small cuts like this or if you don’t have access to power tools.
- Have it cut at Home Depot – you can purchase reclaimed wood or new wood from Home Depot and have them cut it down to size for you at the store.
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.
Once the two wooden pieces are secure, tight the twine together in a double knot on the backside to hide it.
Here’s what it will look like when finished.
Now step back and gives yourself a pat on the back. You did it!! I told you that it was easy!
I love how this cute XOXO decor turned out! Doesn’t it look so cute styled on our living room shelves?
To style the rest of our shelves for the holiday, we added vintage books in between two corbel bookends, next to these farmhouse white pitchers that are super easy to make.
A wooden dough bowl is styled with scented pinecones and faux greenery with a small felt bead garland hanging out of it.
On the top shelf, we layered vintage windows and wooden signs behind the XOXO wooden Valentine’s Day decor to give it a bit more dimension and character.
