Don’t ask me why I’ve held onto a satin Valentine’s Day chocolate box. But, stored away in my holiday decorations box, has been this heart-shaped box for the past couple of years. Finally, I’ve thought of something crafty to do with it this Valentine’s Day.
Gathering a few supplies, I quickly — like within 10 minutes — put together a unique DIY succulent Valentine’s Day wreath. Grab your hot glue gun, a sampling of chocolates and here’s how I did it…

With the tip of the scissors, poke two holes into the bottom of the heart box.
Again using the tip of the scissors, poke the ribbon through these holes. You will use this ribbon to hang the wreath.
If needed, remove any labels or decorations from top of heart box. Determine where you want to position the lid. Secure with hot glue.
Glue a lace doily onto the front of the heart to cover any marks from the original packaging.
Place another doily on the inside of the heart box. I positioned the doily so a section of it would “stick out”.
Place the assorted faux succulents inside the box. Secure with hot glue if needed.
Hang and enjoy for a sweet Valentine’s Day front door wreath.
