If you are making classroom valentines at your house, odds are that you probably have to create a valentine box to go with them. It’s on our list of things to do this week, too! I’ve gathered a few really creative and fun ideas that range from a little more detailed to some that are easier and a little faster to put together. I love that Valentine boxes can really be an expression of your child, depending on what you make, and how it’s decorated. It’s also just a fun thing that can be done together!!!
Creative & Fun Valentine Boxes
Instead of a box, use a tin pail! I think they make such a fun valentine box…plus they’re super fast and easy too!
Can I just say that I LOVE these? I love them even more because they are no-sew. :) These would be so fun for school or home!
There are a million ideas out there for cute mailboxes like this, and they have been popular for awhile–I can see why! Target has them in their one spot, so it would be great place to snatch them up for cheap. You could also try a local craft store. I love them–so fun!
How clever! I love the way this lid opens–what a great way to re-use a cascade container!
I love finding boxes that my boys would love!
This could easily be fashioned for boy or girl…
This is a take on the popular Family Fun ipod valentine from a few years ago…cute!!
I am DYING over this pink pig! You could make it into other animals as well–I know one of my girls would love the pig, and the other would want a black cat!!
She includes a free printable to make your own!
Using a paint bucket is so clever, and there are so many options to decorate it!
