DIY Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

February 11, 2013

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and what better way to surprise your loved ones than with a homemade gift? We’ve rounded up a few DIY gift ideas featuring items that can be found at your local Goodwill store. Feeling crafty? Here we go.

Heart Mittens
These adorable mittens are the perfect antidote to dreary February weather. Read the ModCloth tutorial on how to create and embellish homemade mittens using a cozy sweater. Don’t have time to sew? We suggest finding already-made pink or red mittens at Goodwill and designing your own heart applique using a funky fabric.


Art with Heart
A simple picture frame, pretty paper and decorative marbles (or buttons) are transformed into a festive keepsake using this idea from Tatertots & Jello.

Bow-tie Barrettes
Friends will love these bow-tie barrettes that can be made by cutting up ladies’ printed blouses. Simply attach a bobby pin to these easy-to-make accessories. Learn how to construct bows in any size or shape over at Stars For Streetlights.


Festive Teacups and Saucers
These super sweet treat holders can be made using a monocolor teacup and saucer set and a Sharpie. The fun part is decorating them with your favorite quotes!


Wine Bottle Covers
From wine bottle covers to tea cozies, Amazing Goodwill shares several unique ideas for repurposing an old sweater.  Jazz up the finished product with some costume jewelry or Scrabble tiles.
