Looking for an easy DIY Valentine's Day home decor idea that will take you less than one hour to create? You're going to love this cute XOXO Decor made with reclaimed wood & hearts with supplies from the dollar store.

This DIY wooden Valentine’s Day decor is perfect for those that don’t want to deck out the whole house with hearts for Valentine’s Day but are craving a little something extra to get in the Valentine’s Day spirit.

Not only is this project REALLY simple to put together, but it turned out cuter than I even imagined!

If you are more of the crafty time and don’t typically don’t work with wood, have no fear! I don’t want any of you to get intimidated by working with wood, especially if it’s your first time DIYing with wood. I’m going to give you a few different options today based on your access to tools.

Now let’s jump right into this DIY wooden Valentine’s Day Decor project!

This XOXO Decor post contains affiliate links, but nothing that I wouldn’t wholeheartedly recommend anyway! Read my full disclosure here.

Supplies for XOXO Decor:

Step 1. Cover the first Xoxo Decor heart wreath with the Valentine’s Day print scarves.

Wrap a Xoxo Decor heart wreath forms from Dollar Tree with printed scarves for a quick and easy way to decorate for Valentine's Day

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 can cut pallet wood down to size with a circular saw, like this or a miter saw, hack saw or hand saw on a Xoxo Decor.

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.

  1. Love this project–so easy! I used scarves for one heart and pink burlap ribbon for the other. All in all, it ended up costing about $10 because I also purchased red twine and valentine garland to tie the wood pieces together.
