DIY Wood Gifts for Valentine’s Day

DIY Wood Gifts for Valentine’s Day

 

 

A new year is upon us, and that means that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. For those guys with wives/girlfriends to please, it’s time to think about romantic gifts. The question we have is, why buy your way through it all the time? With just a basic smattering of woodworking skills and a standard miter saw, you can create memorable gifts for your significant other. Besides, a thoughtful, handmade present will make a more profound impression than any store-bought gift.

With that in mind, here are some great ideas for DIY woodworking Valentine’s gifts:

 

Wooden Signs

 

This is so simple, even beginners can make them. They are very versatile and can be used as indoor decorations, or on the porch, or even in the yard. We would suggest using some beautiful grain wood for extra effect. Instead of covering the block with paint, stain the wood for a more rustic charm. For extra impact, add carved letters and heart signs instead of just painting them on.

 

Romantic Wood Blocks

 

This is another beginner-friendly option. Though they may not work as a centerpiece gift, these simple blocks can add a visual flair to other gifts. Don’t forget to paint the square blocks with romantic messages like “be mine.”

 

Valentine’s Ladder

Create your ladder using some store-bought two-by-fours and two-by-threes. Paint them in bright colors, and add any number of wooden carvings and other embellishments. Adding heart shapes for Valentine’s Day are of course a great idea, but you can also design this as an everyday decoration for the home. Your imagination is the limit here. These ladders will make excellent indoor decor gifts.

 

Picture Frame

Use the best quality wood and stain it for a classy look. Instead of gifting an empty picture frame, we would suggest adding some DIY flair inside the frames as well. Romantic photos are a great option. Another option would be to use some carving/crafting skills to add a romantic message and artwork inside.

 

Log Wall Hangings

This is an excellent option if you have a waste log lying about in the yard or near the house. Cut the log into thin circular slices. Choose the best band saw to do the job. Stain it in any way you see fit, and attach some sweet syrupy messages. These can be cut out from pieces of wood, fabric or any other similar material. Color them bright for contrast. Use heart and arrow signs as much as possible for extra effect.
