How to Make a Floral Valentine Mailbox

Step 1. 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 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. 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 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.
