Out of all the things that we upcycle here, upcycled shelves was one I had not thought about until recently and yet I absolutely love how this adorable Valentine’s Day themed shelf turned out.
I was strolling through the thrift store one time, and I was surprised by how many shelves there were. Wood shelves, plastic shelves, and shelves of all types. My mind went wandering of what we could do with shelves.
But upcycled shelves make for great crafts! We used this wood shelf from the thrift store to turn it into an adorable Valentine’s day craft. If you are looking for a Valentine’s Day craft, this may be the best one for you. Honestly, you could use upcycled shelves for crafts for any holiday or any season- they are so much fun!

One of our favourite parts about upcycled shelves crafts is that two people could each sit down to make one and they could each turn out completely different- in a good way! That is the fun about crafting.
