Thrifty Thursday: Inexpensive Valentine’s Day Craft!

Posted by on January 19, 2012




I cannot take the credit for coming up with this adorable craft, it was all inspired from Emily on Anderson Family Crew. I just loved this idea of love notes and chocolate or stickers magically appearing in the mail box throughout Valentine’s Day! You can easily make this for your son or daughter for less than $4.00. It only cost me $2.00 to make since I already owned some of the supplies.



1 Mailbox from Target’s $1.00 bins

1 Candle stick, any size (mine came from the Dollar Tree for $1.00)

Acrylic paint


Modge Podge


Hot glue gun



I painted 3 coats of red acrylic paint over the glass candle stick. Once dry, I mixed glitter and modge podge together and painted 1 layer over the acrylic paint. Then I hot glued the candle stick to the mail box. I decorated the mail box with rein stones and stickers and hot glued the ribbon on. It was a lot of fun and I hope you will enjoy this easy craft too! I’m sure your kids would love to decorate their own mail box!!!


Thanks, Anderson Family Crew
