How do you dress up simple wood letters and make them fantastic? You need to pay a visit to the Craft-O-Maniac, because she recently painted these “XO XO” letters and they now make the perfect Valentine’s decor! She actually painted a basecoat of one color, rubbed on paint of a contrasting color and then wiped it off. This is a great strategy for adding interest to a project – when simple painting in one color just won’t do the trick. Another great idea for these letters is the white polka dots in various sizes.
