“Ex’s and the oh, oh, oh’s they haunt me
Like ghosts they want me to make ’em all
They won’t let go
Ex’s and oh’s”
OK OK, sorry I had to. Every time I see these X’s and O O O’s …. this song haunts me… and it won’t let go… stupid X’s and O’s. And I’m done. But for real, one 2×4 and you can make these simple and adorable Valentine’s Day decor. Then you too will be singing this song every time you walk past them, and for that you are welcome!

How to build X & O
Step 1: Cut Wood
Using the miter saw, cut the 2×4 following the measurements on the image below.
Step 2: Assemble X and O
Using 2 1/2″ wood screws, assemble the X. To make sure the X was even, I placed the bottoms against a straight edge to get the placement because screwing together.
To assemble the O, first apply wood glue to the piece and use the brad nailer to attach.
Step 3: Finish
For the finish I used Rust-Oleum Magenta Spray Paint. I love this color! Perfect for my Valentine’s Day decor.
These were so simple and make the perfect decor for Valentine’s Day. My kids love them and so do it. Plus its a fun project that is done from just one 2×4 for less than $3! Happy building my friends!
