Real Romantics: 10 DIY Valentine Crafts for You and Your Best Friends.

Valentine's Day is no longer just for lovers. Express your love and appreciation for yourself and/or your friends with these romantic crafts.
Insect Curiosity Pendant-Cut Out and Keep
Nothing says "I'm thinking about you" more than dreamy bug jewelry. You might not think so at first, but these sweet necklaces have a very "old encyclopedia" vibe that will grow (or crawl) on you.
Book with Secret Compartment
Think of all the great things you can hide in here. You have to make sure it's a book no one will actually want to read, like anything by Glenn Beck or a how-to book about wearing Fedoras. This way any treasures, legal or not, will only be found by you.
Gothic Antler Head Dress-Cut Out and Keep
Now you and your friends can be mystical animals for Valentine's Day. There's no time to be sad and lonely while you're playing in a fantasy land. ( Note: This is not the same "fantasy land" as the one documented in 50 Shades of Grey, unless you want it to be, but that's up to you.)
DIY Chalkboard Mason Jar
These are actually really sweet. Recycle old mason jars into candles for your home. When the lights are down, only the hearts glow. It can make any space romantic, even if you're just playing video games by yourself in the middle of the night.
Framed Keyboard Picture
Everyone is a computer nerd nowadays. Love is found online more than it's found outside. It would be perfect if it said "these are the keys that lead me to you". So romantic.
Burlap & Doily Luminaries
Here's another source of light for those not-so-lonely nights. These would go great with those gothic antlers.
Bodice and Boxers Threadbanger
I think any friend would appreciate a pair of boxers (don't make it weird, ok?) But you'll probably just want to keep these for yourself.
How to make Lingerie Threadbanger
You don't have to give these to anyone but yourself. They're the sweetest v-day gift from you you. The gifts you give to yourself are the best ones anyway. Self-love is the v-day revolution.
Boy Shorts Threadbanger
Being able to make your own underwear is liberating. You might laugh, but seriously, there's nothing like being able to make everything you wear (it also impresses other people).
Cat Ring-Cut Out and Keep
Because let's face it, your cat is your one true love. Cats have won over the internet and your heart. V-day isn't just a human-animal thing anymore.
