"Love Monster" Valentine's Day Box

Need a last minute Valentine’s Day Box that is unique and inexpensive?

Look no further! We’ll show you how to make a fun, unique and inexpensive “Love Monster” Valentine’s Day Box using a milk jug and a few simple craft supplies.

What you’ll need:

Love Monster Valentine Box Supplies

  • Hiland Dairy milk jug
  • spray paint
  • pipe cleaners
  • googly eyes
  • foam hearts
  • felt
  • hot glue gun
  • one hole punch
  • craft knife
  • scissors

Instructions:

  • Rinse jug and remove label with warm soapy water. Allow to dry completely.
  • Paint entire jug with two coats of spray paint in your preferred color. Allow to dry completely, at least 24 hours.
  • Using a craft knife, cut out a hole for the mouth of your monster.
    • Tip: Be sure to make the hole big enough for the Valentine cards to easily go in and out of.
  • Using a hot glue gun, secure googly eyes and foam hearts around eyes on jug.
    • Tip: Use scotch tape to mock up the layout of the eyes and hearts before securing with the hot glue gun.
  • Using a hot glue gun, secure foam hearts around mouth hole to make the appearance of teeth.
  • Using scissors, create lips out of felt.
    • Tip: Create a template for the lips using a piece of plain paper to outline the mouth hole in jug. Draw lips around the hole, making sure to cover the foam heart teeth points, for a perfect fit.
  • Using a hot glue gun, secure felt lips to foam heart teeth and jug.
  • Using one hole punch, punch 2-3 holes in the mouth of the milk jug where the lid would be screwed on.
  • Secure pipe cleaners to milk jug mouth using punched holes to create hair.
    • Tip: Curl random pipe cleaners around finger or pen to create wacky curls.
  • Using a hot glue gun, secure foam hearts to pipe cleaner hair.

This can be created in a couple of hours (not including drying time). If you already have basic craft supplies, the project will only cost about $5.00. Not bad for a fun and unique Valentine’s Day Box, don’t you think!
