Forget the dinner and flowers, grab some nails and a hammer this Valentine's Day!

At DIY BAR in North Portland, you can craft and sip with your loved ones. From leather wallets to cat scratchers to string art, you do it all, from start to finish.

Co-owned by brothers Jason and Adam Gorske, DIY BAR offers tons of different projects. The best part - you can customize and personalize each craft.

"You can make matching things like matching wallets, matching clutches, put your initials on there. A lot of people like to date them for like the experience." Adam said. "On one hand, you can make it to give to somebody, which makes you feel good, but at the same time, you could bring somebody in here as the gift itself."
