It's Valentine's Day month! Eek! I am so excited. I have always loved Valentine's Day. I loved making Valentine's Day boxes and exchanging special notes and treats at the school party. Good, clean fun and the sweetest memories. 

This year I wanted to surprise my kids with some DIY Valentine's Day mailboxes! I wasn't totally sure how I wanted to make these, but think they turned out so cute. I was originally planning to make the boxes from scratch out of cardboard or old shoe boxes. But then I happened to find these adorable mailboxes!

You could also make themed Valentine's Day box for your kiddos! Or do them together as a family craft. There are so many cute Valentine's box ideas. I love this for Ryder and this for Blakely. You can customize these with fun stickers and pom poms. 

This Valentine's Day mailbox craft was so fun to put together! I had different colors and patterns on Valentine's Day themed paper, some fun ribbon, letter stickers, and pom poms. That's it! You can see the mailbox craft reel on my insta @stef.hubble - HERE.

I plan to use these adorable Valentine's Day mailboxes to sneak sweet little notes into each day leading up to Valentine's Day. I already gifted these to the kids and they were a hit! The kids loved them (although I really think they would have loved to be involved in creating them and putting them together!) 

Daiy affirmations, sweet notes from mom, and bible verses they love will end up on mini notes in their mailboxes. Blakely has already snuck in a sweet little note to Ryder in his mailbox. How cuuuute! I can't handle her. She wrote her brother a sweet little note and gave him a little gift inside his mailbox. I didn't see that coming... and it melted my heart!

9 Valentine's Day Mailbox Craft Supplies:

1. Glue Gun

My glue gun is olddddd. But I love this one. This stand looks so handy! If you're wanting a slightly smaller or "mini" glue gun, I like this one here. I highly recommend using a glue gun, as this will dry hard, fast. This way you don't have to stand around waiting for things to dry. But I do keep this clear glue on hand as well!

2. Patterned Paper

I wanted to mix a few different prints and colors in for the kids Valentine's Day mailboxes. I love this set. I also love this one! I also used some glitter paper, which I loved. 

3. Ribbon

I have a lot of ribbon. We seem to go through it so fast! I didn't use a ton of ribbon on this project, just a little to Ryder's mailbox. You could add some fun ribbon to the mailbox flag. 

4. Pom Poms

I had two different sizes of pom poms and these were so fun and easy to add to their Valentine's Day mailbox craft.

5. Letter Stickers

I like to have different letter stickers on hand. They are fun to add to gifts and notes throughout the year. I like these circle letter stickers, these black letter stickers, and these colorful letter stickers

6. Scissors 

These are the scissors we use for crafts! You can get some heavy duty scissors, but I never feel they are necessary for the projects I'm doing. Especially with kids. 

7. Mailbox or Cardboard

I was so happy to find these adorable mailboxes. But you can also use a shoebox or cardboard to create your own in any shape you'd like! When I started thinking about creating Valentine's Day mailboxes for the kids, I knew I really wanted a door and a flag for the kids to have fun with. And you can make that with cardboard and brads. I also like these!

8. Mini Cards

I bought some cute mini cards to write notes on for kids. I love these and these

9. Valentine's Day Stickers

We love stickers over here! I love these heart stickers and these gem stickers are also so fun.
