Recycled Crafts for Valentine's Day

1. Birds on a Wire Art by Sweet Verbena

Sweet Verbena took a thrift store frame, an old dictionary, and a bit of paint to create this adorable art! Although it doesn’t necessarily “scream” Valentine’s day, that’s what I love about it! Plus, it’s so simple and you could keep it up year-round. Better yet, you could make this as a gift for a friend or your loved one! Remember, though, if you use spray paint on your thrift store frame, use a low VOC spray paint if you can! For even more decorations for Valentine’s Day, keep clicking!
