Cupid’s Corner: DIY XO Door Hanger

Cupid’s Corner: DIY XO Door Hanger

Hi everyone, it’s Ilana from Team LC! Today I’m excited to present the first of many crafts I’ll be sharing here on Valentine’s Day often gets a bad wrap for being a “Hallmark Holiday,” but all it takes to change that is a little DIY touch. So with February 14 right around the corner, I thought I’d show you a fun and festive way to add a little love to your space. This year, step away from the candy aisle and give this sweet and sparkly DIY a try. It’s really easy to make and it cost me a grand total of $12. Check out my how-to below…

Here’s what you will need:

  • cardboard ‘X’ and ‘O’ (available at most craft stores)
  • pink and gold acrylic paint
  • paintbrush
  • pink satin ribbon
  • hot glue gun

  1. Spread newspaper or kraft paper over your workspace before you begin.
  2. Paint your X gold and your O pink using 2-4 coats on each letter, allowing the paint to dry completely between each coat.
  3. Once your final coat of paint is dry, glue your X on top of the O using a hot glue gun.
  4. Flip your letters over and attach a piece of ribbon approximately 22 inches in length to the top of each side of the X using your hot glue.
  5. Hang on your front door like a wreath or on your bedroom doorknob like I did in the top picture.
