I stumbled across this neat Valentine's Day Door Decor post on Pinterest last week. I decided to give it a try and make my own!
I purchased Styrofoam shapes (you can find these in the floral department of craft stores). The 'O' was easy because they have different sized Styrofoam wreaths. I had to create the 'X' by cutting two rectangles of Styrofoam and gluing them together. I painted the 'X' and 'O' with red craft paint just so they would blend in with the flowers.
While I really liked the rustic look of using pink and red berries for this, I wasn't able to find any in my local craft stores. I decided to use pink and red roses with white carnations instead. Since these flowers had metal stems I was able to cut them and just push them into the styrofoam. I used hot glue where needed to make sure nothing would fall off.
Here's a side by side comparison. What do you think?
Ordering the Kisses and Hugs Berry Wreath from Etsy would have been $75 plus $17 shipping. I made mine for less than $30.
Happy Valentine's Day!
