Winter has finally hit Virginia. Gusty winds brought in freezing cold temperatures. I’d much rather keep those 60’s and 70’s around, though.

Last Wednesday I shared with you how I made a beautiful Valentine’s Heart Wreath from Dollar Tree items. I promised you I would show you how I made the flower box and candles, too. So today I’m sharing that with you!

The flower box is so easy and quick to make. It will take less than 5 minutes to put together and only cost $4. Can you believe that?

The candles take a little longer, but only because of cutting ribbons and waiting for the glue to dry. Still, it only took me about 10 minutes to put these together and cost $4 to make.

So if you have $8 and 15 minutes, you can put together this beautiful Valentines’ flower box and candles!

Flower Box Instructions

I found this cute little Valentine’s decor at Dollar Tree. I didn’t really like the front so much, but I wanted it more because it was like a little box.

Valentine's Decor

I removed the wooden flower from the front of the box so that it would lay flat when I turned it over.

I turned the box over and filled it up with the moss.

I then took the bunch of roses and popped the flowers off of the stems.

I placed the flowers right on top of the moss. I didn’t glue them down, but you can if you want a more permanent piece.

I used 9 flowers for this – 3 cream and 6 peach.

Add the roses to the flower box

Glass candles instructions

These glass candles were also really easy to make.

I wrapped the ribbon around the glass candle first, close to the bottom. I hot glued the end pieces together at the back of the candle. I just covered the price sticker with the ribbon and burlap.

Next, I wrapped the burlap around the bottom part of the candle, overlapping the ribbon just a tad bit.

That’s all there is to making this Valentine’s flower box and candles. So quick and easy to make and I just love how they turned out!
