Up-Cycled Valentine’s Day Ideas

 

Creating a fun filled, pretty Valentine's day for loved ones won't cost the earth with these 14 cute and easy up-cyled Valentine's Day ideas.

I love Valentine’s Day, it gives me a great excuse to totally over-the-top pamper my nearest and dearest. I don’t think showing your love should cost the earth though and am a great fan of home-made and up-cycled.

I’ve gathered together lots of amazing up-cycled Valentines from a bunch of fantastic bloggers, so whether you’re looking for Valentine gifts for your family, decorations for the home or activities and fun for the children, look no further. Just scroll down to browse my top picks.

Valentine’s Day Decorations

Here at My Little 3 and Me we love our up-cycled Milk Jug Sun-Catchers. They just look so pretty and are really easy to make.

Have you ever thought of making a door decoration for Valentine’s Day? If you’re anything like me you’ll have a cupboard full of old toilet roll middles that you’ve saved for crafting. Well, I Can Teach My Child has a fabulous Heart Wreath to make from them. How clever!

Perhaps you’re a bit of an egg box collector?  Capri +3 guest posts for Red Ted Art with a great Egg Carton Heart Wreath.

I love this Heart Mobile from Lemon Lime Adventures at Red Ted Art. It’s so pretty I think it would look great hanging in any room.

Learn Create Love also has a super simple Heart Printing Activity from Toilet Rolls. I think you could make gorgeous cards or gift wrap with her method.

The Mad House has a great idea for upcycling the children’s art into Cute Flowers with Lollypops Middles. They’d make such great gifts for little ones to give to friends.

Perhaps the kiddies would like to dress up in some truly funky Heart Shaped Glasses? Pink Stripey Socks has come up with a gorgeously pretty design.

Looking for a tasty treat? Perhaps like me you’ve got some candy canes lurking in the cupboard from Christmas? Why not revamp them into gorgeous Edible Roses?

For the man in your life perhaps you’re looking for something a bit different? Makeovers & Motherhood over at Red Ted Art has a great Date Night Gift. It’s the gift that keeps giving all year!
