Decorate Your Mailbox for Valentine's Day!
Can you believe that Valentine’s Day is less than four weeks away? If you like to add some Valentine decor to your mailbox, I have the perfect easy project for you today! If you have seen how I have decorated my mailbox for holidays in the past, you will find this is a quicker and easier method.
I used a Floracraft monument saddle for the base for this project. The sides can easily be bent down around the sides of your mailbox.
Here you can see how I began to bend them.
Here are the wires bent to fit around my mailbox. Later I will use zip ties to attach this to the mailbox.
Once the frame is on the mailbox, you can begin by adding greenery to the styrofoam.
With stiff stems, you can stick them right into the foam to secure them. I use my Steel Pix machine to attach steel picks to the ends of the pieces I want to add to my arrangement. You can also use wood wired sticks to do the same thing.
When the styrofoam is almost completely covered with greenery it is time begin adding flowers. I love the look of the faux wisteria you can find, and used both pink and white for my mailbox decoration.
Add your flowers so that it looks like they are growing out of the base.
When you have added all of the flowers you want to add some Valentine’s love! I picked up these two glittery styrofoam hearts at Dollar Tree. I just used a wire bent in half to make a “U” shape and then used the wire to secure the heart decoration to arrangement.
A few more hearts will add some more of the Valentine’s look! I used small styrofoam hearts and cut a small dowel, stuck one end in the hearts and the other end into the top of my arrangement.
As simple as that, your mailbox is decorated ready to receive Valentines!
