I used two mason jars we had laying around and Valentine’s Day themed ziploc bags from Dollar Tree for a quick and easy DIY Valentine’s Day gift. I bought the white frame from Target‘s Room Essentials collection for $13.99. The matted frame makes it look more elegant.

Cupcake holders make for an easy and inexpensive decoration for the mason jar lids.

I had a personalized engraved keychain made by JewelryEveryday on Etsy. She had excellent customer service and it was delivered very quickly if you’re on a time crunch.

For a small fee, I was able to get both sides engraved.  With shipping, the keychain totaled $25.95.

Here’s how the frame looks with our yellow and grey bedroom theme. With a little more wall decor and perhaps a headboard, it will look much better.
