10 Valentine DIY candy box ideas

Here are ten Valentine DIY candy box ideas that will kick your crafty spirit into overdrive!

The heart-shaped candy box is a classic. How about we give it some crafty love? These boxes are perfect for a Valentine makeover. The boxes comes in different sizes and price ranges. I love buying a batch at the dollar store and decorating them.

You can choose to eat the chocolate and fill the boxes with something else (something better than dollar store chocolate, perhaps?). Another idea is to put another treat inside, like a gift card or love note, etc.

When choosing a candy box for decorate, go for the ones that have a cardboard top and bottom, as opposed to plastic.

To keep the seams sturdy,  use hot glue to solidify the joint or even add decorative tape around the edges.

After transforming some of these, I thought I’d create a round-up along with some other I found online!

Enjoy these yummy DIY candy box ideas!

Fancy Candy Boxes!

For this, I cut up a cereal box and added elements to the lid of a candy box. Start with a basic box, decorate it and then use pieces from the cereal box to add embellishments.
