Recognize the song lyrics on this cute piece of art? They’re from the classic romcom, “Sleepless in Seattle,” (which makes for a perfect V-Day flick!). Print out the quote, glue on some heart-shaped ribbon and stick it in a frame.

Buttons + Burlap + Canvas + Me + You (and don’t forget the glue!). Hit up your local Goodwill and score yourself a used canvas. Go with the black and white painted stripes or add a pop of color. Either way, this button art will surely add some heart to the room!

Bonus: Fill a glass jar with some candy conversation hearts to add a simple pop of color and cuteness to any tabletop.
