5 Recycled Crafts for Valentine’s Day!

Recycled Crafts for Valentine's Day

3. Valentine’s Day Votives by Homemade Serenity

Grab all of your empty jars– this is a great project for them! Homemade Serenity took an old pickle jar and glued colored tissue paper to it in order to give it a lovely Valentine’s Day theme. Instead of using tissue paper, though, perhaps you could make the project even more eco-friendly by using newspaper, sheet music, book pages, or old magazines. She also included her children in this project, so this would be a fabulous project to complete with your little ones! Another project you could complete with your children is the Cardboard Heart Garland. Click to the next page to see how to do it!
