Need something special for V-day?

Here’s a list of DIY tutorials, with varying degrees of difficulty, to make in time for your date, or hanging out with your girls.

I tried to choose the most basic how-tos that don't require a lot of skill or special materials. If you’ve NEVER handled a glue gun or needle and thread before, these are probably not for you. But if you’re somewhat familiar with arts and crafts, you should be able to handle many of these, or modify them to your skill level.

Guide to Skillz Levelz

  • Newbie – you’re not afraid of stabbing yourself with needle and thread or burning yourself with a glue gun. Basic familiarity with common craft supplies.
  • Sorcerer’s Apprentice – a bit more advanced than newbie, you’ve learned some specialized skills from classes or craft books.
  • Super Grand Wizard Craft Master Flex – advanced, using uncommon materials and techniques, with not very detailed instructions.

Have fun! Send pictures! Seriously!
