I am getting nervous because I’m nearing the end of my game block stash (words I never imagined saying). When I stumbled upon 2 bags of game blocks in a thrift store last summer I wasn’t sure what I’d do with them, but knew that they qualified as a perfect thrift store item to repurpose. Today I’m sharing my Valentine’s décor upcycled from recycled blocks.
I love the creative inspiration of using recycled items to create an upcycled craft. Plus, using recycled items:
- Are less expensive supplies
- Are earth-friendly supplies
- Take the stress out of crafting since you didn’t spend much on them
- Always impress since it’s a repurposed craft
Recycled Blocks for Valentine’s Day
My odyssey into recycling game blocks all started when I found these game blocks at a local thrift store. You can find the super easy directions on how I turned the blocks into my first repurposed project.
Two months ago, I made a set of repurposed blocks as a Christmas decoration. As I was placing the letters for the Christmas decor repurposed blocks, I realized that I was only one letter away from being able to spell love. Light bulb moment! I planned the letters and decorative paper so that I could use the L, V and E to spell love for Valentine’s Day. I simply placed the O on the back of one of the other blocks. So that makes today’s post a repurposed repurposed project (goofy excited, recycling, crazed mom grin)!
I’m so happy with these cute little recycled game blocks. Aren’t they just perfect for Valentine’s decor?
This would also be a great project to make with the kiddos. I’ll see you at the thrift store searching for wood game blocks to make more recycled game blocks projects.
