HGTV designed a clever string art tutorial that serves as the perfect DIY Valentine's Day gift. Homemade crafts are not only a fun way to celebrate the annual holiday, but they can also serve as an inexpensive solution for holiday decorating. This tutorial helps consumers turn common household items into a beautiful work of modern art.

The string art tutorial involves painting a Mason board and then hammering nails into a heart-shaped pattern. Once the outline of the heart is in place, users can string metallic twine from one nail to the next. While the tutorial is not safe for children, it does make the perfect gift for adults looking for an inexpensive way to celebrate Valentine's Day. The homemade gift is not only easy to make, but the finished product is something that could be proudly displayed in any home.
