XOXO Valentine Blocks

If you follow my blog, I'm sure you have seen similar blocks before.
Here is my set of Teacher Name Blocks and here are my Joy Blocks.
These blocks have been on clearance for some time at Hobby Lobby. They were originally priced at $1.99 and were marked down to $0.26. As time went on, it was pretty slim-pickins. Last time I was there, I noticed that there were a bunch of Xs left. I thought to myself, what would people use Xs for? Then it hit me!--Valentine's Day for XOXO :)
I started by painting the blocks brown.

Then I cut and mod podged some scrapbook paper to the letters and to the sides of the blocks.

I cut out and layered some hearts to add to the top.

To hold the heard, I used pink and red paperclips. I simply straightened them out and then wrapped them around a pencil to give them that twirl effect.

Again, I live with my parents, so needless to say I don't have very much space to decorate.
I like to decorate the top of this little bookcase.
