Upcycled Valentines Ideas

Since I have an ever growing love for Pinterest, I wanted to share these upcycled Valentines ideas found pinned to my Pinterest boards. Like the above Upcycled Heart Paper Garland, which can be made from newspapers or old book pages.

Or these leftover paint swatches and some stamps make fun Valentines cards.

Broken crayons? Don't throw them away. Pop them in the oven for 15 minutes at 230 degrees and you'll have these adorable Valentines creations.

Recycled Egg Carton Art.

Upcycle your old photos into this adorable heart garland.

Here's a few upcycled creations found in our Upcyclers Etsy shops as well:
