With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there’s always a bit of a scurry as we try to find gifts that are just perfect for our loved ones, whether you’re looking for your significant other, a parent, friend, or a child. There’s a lot of pressure to get it right this time of year, but you really can’t go wrong with a handmade gift that comes from that heart. It won’t hurt a bit if that gift will make an attractive addition to the recipient’s décor, either.

Here are some ideas for simple DIY projects that you can frame so your loved one can display them for all to see.

Use Scrabble tiles to create a custom message board, with a sentimental note acting as a constant symbol of your love and a classy piece of décor. Use a thin canvas in the color of your choice and frame and glue down your message, then frame the canvas sans glass

You can use buttons and other notions in the same way to create a lovely heart mosaic. This is a great project for kiddos to do, and the end result is something any mother would be proud of!

Create a custom wall hanging with the important dates in your relationship by either using stencils and paint or use a vinyl cutting machine to put the decoration directly on the glass.

A beautiful, ornate frame can hang all on its own with a cute little banner that declares a simple phrase like “Love” or “Kiss Me” on it.
