Hey loves! Who’s ready for day two of the Valentine’s day decor diy? Me, me! If you’re new here, welcome! Today, I’ll be sharing my next Valentine’s day craft. I’m calling it “the heart box!” Shall we begin…
The Heart Box
Materials & Tools:
- Art decor 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
- Sandpaper or Sanding Block
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.
Next, I mixed my three paints together as I did in my previous post (see here) to get my desired pink color. 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 decor piece! Another simple and easy win!
I hope you all enjoyed! If you haven’t already, be sure to check out “The Love Sign” in my previous post. Tomorrow, I will introduce my next diy Valentine’s Day decor! Until next time loves!
