Best Of: DIY Valentine’s Day Projects

by Grace Bonney

Over the next two weeks, we’ll be sharing a boatload of great low-cost and easy-to-make Valentine’s gift ideas. But before we dive into those this afternoon, I decided to go diving through our archives for the best of the rest: our favorite 20 DIY Valentine’s Day projects from the past few years. Whether you’re looking for flower arrangements, something to sew or something cute to wrap up freshly baked treats, this roundup of 20 projects has something for every recipient — and every budget. If you’re looking for simpler gifts, like a handmade card, we’ve got great ideas for those in here, too. No matter what you choose, a little handmade something is always a hit. xo, grace
