Hey there! It’s Valentine’s Day again, and most of us have got our presents ready and wrapped! But if you’ve end up here one day before Valentine’s Day, then you probably couldn’t find the time to go get something, or maybe you still have no idea what to get, and now you’re just looking hopelessly for an easy last minute gift with the last-minute characteristic not being that obvious.

Relax now. Who says gifts have to be so pricey every single year!? In fact, nothing beats a gift uniquely built in your own hands, with your own time, effort, and love. And in this DIY’s case, you’ll be recycling too! You will give a useless jar a new life! So, remind yourself of these wise words from Eminem, and create something of your own this time!

Anyway, I figured as we all love Paisley so much, why not make some jewelry out of it? So, I played with clay a little, tried this and that, And this is what happened:
As this is fairly easy, you’ll see, and fun! Here is how it goes:
