DIY Rustic XOXO Garland

I’m Carissa, from Carissa Miss and this is my first post as a new contributor. I hope to inspire you to get your DIY on every second Monday each month!
This year, I’m lucky enough to be attending RootsTech, a family history and technology conference in Salt Lake City, that is over Valentine’s Day weekend. Not very romantic. However, I booked a hotel room, got a babysitter, and am surprising my hubby to come join me after work on Friday. I’m very proud of myself for making the effort:)
I know it seems we just put our Christmas decor down :( and Valentine’s Day seems so far off, but I have been pinning projects to use with my Cricut *affiliate link* and just couldn’t help myself. If there weren’t so many cute crafts around the holiday, it probably would pass by pretty quietly at our house but when I saw Rebecca’s cute XOXO Bunting and knew it would be the perfect project to get me in the spirit.


Rebecca offers a free printable with her tutorial and I converted it to a cuttable SVG file for my Cricut you can DOWNLOAD HERE.
You can make them whatever size you’d like, use whatever paper/medium you’d like, punch holes and string them. I love this glitter paper and the Cricut cuts it like butta.
I went for a more rustic look so I added pine cones and strung them in my entryway. More decor tutorials to come!
Thanks so much Carissa for this DIY Rustic XOXO Garland!  It has definitely gotten me in the spirit for Valentine’s Day!
