DIY Valentine Box Idea with Flowers
Time to get those Valentine boxes ready – introducing my DIY Valentine’s Day mailbox. Whether your kids are making them for their classroom parties or you’re an adult like me who just wants a Valentine box, then this DIY Valentines’ Day mailbox is the craft for you! 🙂 I took a basic paper mache mailbox from the craft store and made it look oh-so special with some pink craft paint and artificial flowers.

How to Make a Floral Valentine Mailbox
Step 1. Paint mailbox
Paint your mailbox using pink acrylic craft paint and a foam brush. I painted the mailbox pink and the flag metallic gold. Paint a second coat if needed.
Step 2. Cut flowers from stems
Trim flowers from their stems using a wire cutter. Cut as close to the base of the flower as possible but be careful to keep the flower intact. If you cut too close, the petals will fall apart from the base.
Step 3. Glue flowers to mailbox
Add a dab of hot glue to the base of the flower and position on the mailbox. Hold a few seconds until dry.
Step 4. Continue wrapping flowers around mailbox
Continue adding more flowers to the mailbox. I varied the size and color of my flowers and positioned them to wrap around the mailbox from one side to the other.
Step 5. Finish with heart sticker
Finish with a heart sticker on the mailbox flag if you would like!
I stuck with a pink and white color palette to create a cohesive look for the mailbox.
