Valentine’s day will be here before we know it, and if you want to do the whole thing handmade, it might be time to start planning! Here are some awesome recycled projects to get you going:

  1. Ellen at The Long Thread has a super-adorable recycled take on the IKEA heart.
  2. Over at Scrumdillydo, you can learn how to make a recycled love-themed memory game (pictured above)!
  3. Of course, you’ll want to pull out that stack of old magazines and make yourself a pop up card.
  4. My Recycled Bags has a free pattern for making a Valentine’s Day-themed bag out of plarn.
  5. Instead of cut flowers that die in a few days, you can make a bouquet of fabric scrap flower.

Are you guys working on any recycled Valentine’s day projects? Tell us all about it in the comments!

    I love the hearts memory game! I definitely think that is something that I can make something for my girls group at school. We are also working on some decoupaged trinket boxes and frames!
    I love this site and all the great projects!

    I created several games that use paper hearts. I like to use paper strips from pre-cycled paper (printed sheets that are headed to the recycling bin).

    The 3 games are explained here:

    I’ve also used strips to make some quilled hearts, though I haven’t put them together into a big project yet.
