Since Valentine’s Day is coming up in less than two weeks, I came up with this simple DIY project as it would make an excellent gift for a loved one. I had been seeing rose boxes all over Instagram for a while now. Basically, they are real roses artistically arranged in a square, rectangular, or circular box, and they last for up to a year. However… the price of these said roses is incredibly extravagant and not justifiable whatsoever. Thus I decided to make my own everlasting and much cheaper version. Read on to discover how!
For this project you shall need:
- A box in the shape and dimensions of your choice
- Floral foam (link)
- Fake roses in the color of your choice (link)
- Fake rose leaves (optional; link)
- Decorations of your choice (optional)
Assembly is straightforward. All you have to do is measure, cut, and arrange the floral foam to fit in the dimensions of your box, then stick the fake roses in the foam in rows after trimming their wire stems. I like the addition of some greenery hence I added some fake leaves here and there. If you so feel inclined, you can also decorate the exterior of your box with gemstones, ribbon, metallic paints, and glitter. However, since my box already has this beautiful Parisienne print, I opted simply to add a glittery burlap bow from my local Dollar Spot.
There you have it – a no-muss, no-fuss DIY Valentine’s Day gift idea, or even a little something special for yourself! I hope you enjoyed following along with me in creating this project, and feel free to comment how yours turns out down below.
