Flowers. Candy hearts. Chocolate. A fancy dinner. Sure, you could give your sweetheart something expected this Valentine’s Day. But, if you’ve got a crafty side and just a few bucks for all the supplies you’ll need at ReStore, you can make a hand-crafted, decorative gift they’ll be sure to love even more.
Create this charming craft with a wooden pallet or some wood furniture shims you’ll find at ReStore. Then grab some red paint, sandpaper and a rub-on word or two—and that’s it! You’ve got a simple yet striking piece of decorative pallet art for someone to set on a shelf or hang on a wall. Check out DIY Beautify for a tutorial.
Win over your Valentine with a set of personalized coasters for their coffee table. Pick up some tile squares from ReStore, like the crafters at The DIY Playbook did, then grab some paint markers, felt stickers and other accessories and create a set of colorful, unique drink coasters that make the perfect gift.
Light up the life of somebody special with this unique lightbulb gift from Design Sponge. Pick up a glass bulb and scrap wood from ReStore, plus some red wire and a few tools, and you’ll have everything you need to create a lovely, heartfelt decoration that can be displayed year-round on a desk, dresser or shelf.
Adored Door Décor
Make a hanging piece of art for your sweetheart’s front door—out of another door! Find a cabinet door at your local ReStore, like a blogger at Her View from the Sandhills did. Grab some paint, some fabric and some letter stencils and put it all together to make a welcoming sign that visitors will love, too!
Salvaged Heart Art
Give someone a piece of your heart with this scrap wood art from My Altered State. All it takes to make your own is some plywood and scrap wood you’ll find at ReStore. Creatively cut and arrange the scrap wood pieces, then glue it all together. The finished heart can be hung from a tree, a fence, a doorframe—anywhere you want to show the love!
