Craft supplies to make the Valentine Candy Box Wall Hanging.
Supplies

Supplies

  • A medium to large heart-shaped chocolate box
  • Silk flowers
  • Floral moss
  • Floral foam or styrofoam
  • Ribbon or string to hang (I used twine with wood beads)
  • Scissors (or metal cutters) to cut faux flower stems
  • Hot glue gun

Start by making two holes to the top and string (or ribbon) to hang your decoration by. I chose twine with Beads.

Next, hot glue floral foam into the box. Cut the foam down as needed and it should be just slightly shallower than the sides.

Cut the stems off of your flowers. If the stems on your faux flowers are thick, you may need to use metal cutters. Apply hot glue to the end of each flower stem and push them into the foam. Don’t worry if you have gaps in between flowers or at the edges, that can be filled in by floral moss later!

In process is a blush rose wall hanging being made with an upcycled heart-shaped Valentine's Day chocolate box. Floral foam has been inset into the box and blush color roses are being pushed into the foam and hot glued in place.

Next, download and print the Shamrock Free Printable in the supplies list above. Use this as a template to cut a shamrock out of lightweight cardboard then cover it with tacky or craft glue. Press loose or sheet moss into the glue. Add more moss as needed then cut the excess around the edges to finish.

If needed, cut a piece of white cardstock or poster board to cover your heart box. I was using fabric and I could see through to the wording on the box. You may not need to do this step if you are using patterned paper.

Apply Mod Podge to your box to glue down the background paper/fabric. I used Mod Podge for Fabric and I also added a coat over the fabric to seal it.
