To match my heart garland, I just had to have some hugs and kisses.

I bought my X's and O's at Hobby Lobby, they are 5 1/2". Then I added decorative paper with mod podge and then used a distressing pad on the wooden areas not covered by paper.

In order to get them to stand I hot glued a piece of black ribbon on the top and bottom of each pair of XO's. I tried hot gluing together but it just didn't look right. If anyone has a better solution I would love to hear it. For now at least they will lay flat for storage.
