How to Make a Valentine’s Day Heart Box?

Hey loves! Who’s ready for day two of the Valentine’s day décor DIY? Me, me! If you’re new here, welcome my friend! I hope you are ready to be inspired! Today, I’ll be sharing my next Valentine’s day craft. I’m calling it “the heart box!” Now, let’s get crafty!

The Heart Box

Materials & Tools:
  • Art decorative box (dollar tree find)
  • Metal heart (retrieved mines from a dollar tree sign)
  • Twine (dollar tree)
  • Ribbon (dollar tree)
  • Paint (your choice)
  • Paint Brush 
  • Hot Glue Gun 
  • Gluesticks
  • Sandpaper or Sanding Block
Decorative box found at The Dollar Tree in the Valentine’s Day seasonal section.

To get started, take the box and scrap the flower off (your box may differ as there are different prints sold at The Dollar Tree.) I used scissors to complete this process, but I suggest using a putty knife. Grab sandpaper or a sanding block and sand the area so that it’s smooth. Be sure to wipe the area clean, free of dust. 

Sanding to smooth the area. Don’t forget to wipe the residue off.

Next, I mixed my three paints together as I did in my previous post here in order to get my desired pink hue. Use a paint brush to brush on the paint, then allow to dry.

After drying, add a dab of  hot glue to secure the tip of the twine to the back of the box. Next, wrap the twine around 4 times. Cut, and then glue the twine to secure in place. Repeat for the remaining 3 sides. 

Applying hot glue to the metal heart, place it to the center of the box. Cut your desired length of the ribbon of your choice and make it into a bow. Add a dab of hot glue and place the bow at the top of the box. There’s your beautiful Valentine’s Day DIY décor piece! Another simple and easy win!
