O gets SO excited when I make something for him. This cute little Valentine’s Day Kiss Treat Box was no exception. He said, “Mommy, what is that for?” And after I explained it was for Valentine’s Day to hold treats he earnestly said, “And it’s for ME right?!?!?!” Of course, O, it’s for you. And now that he can read he read the side that says “kiss” and then saw what candy I was putting inside and started laughing. I love his enthusiasm but I suspect that in this case, he was less excited by the cute well executed design (right?) and more excited by the prospect of candy. He is a kid after all. But until the big day, I have it sitting on a shelf in our dining room and it makes a cute Valentine’s Day decoration even without treats inside. But let’s be real, candy is more fun in a cute package. I mean, it’s Valentine’s Day, you’ve got to cram as much pink and shmaltz into it as you can! (It’s ok if you disagree, I’m actually not a big fan of the actual holiday, just a fan of the cute decorations, ha!) Anyway, here’s how I made it:

Acrylic craft paint in light pink, dark pink and white

Wood “Sweet” and “Kiss shapes – if you can’t find the ones I used at Michaels, THESE would be really cute!

Hot glue gun

Your favorite Valentine’s Day candy

1. If necessary, give your wood box a light sanding to take care of any rough edges. Then paint the outside light pink.

If you need to, tape off the top with painters tape so you get a nice clean edge between the colors. Cute Valentine's Day Kiss Treat Box! | littleredwindow.com3.
