Fill plain glass votive candle holders with candy nonpareils for seasonal color. Small glass beads from the crafts store offer a similar look.
Recycle a vintage glass bottle (easily found at a flea market or secondhand shop) into a Valentine’s message-in-a-bottle. Throw in feathers, cookie fortunes, and delicate paper curlicues, then top with a cork and tag.
Remember the personal Valentine’s Day cards you’ve received over the years by using plastic picture frames to display them around your home.
