2. Mason Jar

Bring out the mason jars you’ve collected and clean each thoroughly. Once dry, start painting the jars in colors like red, pink, and white. Fill these with flowers and sweet treats. You can give some to your officemates or friends as gifts. You also have the option to use three to four jars as part of your dining area centerpiece.

RL Tip: Hosting a simple V-Day gathering? Fill the jars with votive candles to create an intimate ambiance.

3. Rose Cone Centerpiece

For the ultimate sweet treat, you can work with waffle cones as flower holders! Cut the stem of your blooms and fill each cone with two to three roses. Place these inside tall glasses or a huge glass jar for a stunning display.

4. Kisses Wall Art

Can’t seem to find the perfect gift for your partner? Save a few bucks and keep it simple with a frame and a sheet of bond paper. Gather your favorite lipsticks and fill the paper with kiss marks. Once you’re done, you can put it inside the frame and wrap it with a ribbon. Instant mushy surprise, don’t you agree? It can make for a quirky wall art, too!

5. Heart Branch Tree

Make the most of your DIY skills by gathering twigs from the garden. After cleaning these, you can now craft a lovely décor piece using paper cutouts! Prepare tiny hearts in bold colors (use different craft and art papers!) or stick to pink and red. Once you have enough, hang these on the branches of the twigs using a string. Display your finished project in an old ceramic jar or vase.
