This box makeover project is pretty easy, and is a nice way to turn a plain box into something special for Valentine's Day. All you need is acrylic craft paint, a fine-tip paintbrush and a plain box (matte finish is best); you can get all three for under $5 total at the dollar store.
Basically you just paint little Vs in a random pattern on the surface of the box. Seriously, that's it. The little Vs will look like little hearts. Once the paint is dry, fill the box with jewelry, candy or other Valentine's Day gift.
