X’s and O’s

This is a quick craft I whipped up in the valentine spirit.  I saw wooden hearts at Hobby Lobby and couldn't pass them up.  I wasn't quite sure how they would end up, but I gave them a couple solid coats of red spray paint as soon as I got home.  Gotta love these sweet red hearts.
Then of course I sanded my edges.
I traced the heart onto several black and white papers.  I am a sucker for the red and black/white combination.  I mod-podged the papers on and then used my nail file to really meld the paper with the wood.
For a couple of weeks, I have had these hearts just waiting to be finished.  I debated about several messages including "I love you" or just "L.O.V.E.", but then decided we all need some extra X's and O's.  I cut out some red paper on the Cricut (I am trying to save my vinyl as much as possible--paper is cheaper!).  I couldn't resist adding a bit of glitter.  Bling, bling!
So now they sit on my mantel, just waiting for more valentine decor.   One step at a time.
