My daughter and I made this DIY Starbucks Valentine box a couple of years ago together for her to keep classroom Valentines in. I personally love that we were able to recycle trash, and didn’t even spend anything on it as this was done using supplies on hand at home!

We think this Starbuck’s-inspired Valentine box is a fun and frugal project to share for creative inspiration. I think this could make such a wonderful teacher appreciation gift when filled with school supplies and more. Here’s how to make a Starbucks Valentine box right at home!

DIY Starbucks Valentine Box Using An Oatmeal Container



Apply spray paint to the outside of the empty oatmeal container including the lid. Let it dry completely.


Squeeze construction caulking into the pastry bag with a tip and pipe it onto the top of the lid to look like frosting in a swirl shape. Cut the straw in half, and carefully stick it in the caulking. Add sprinkles to the top and let that dry completely.


Print out a Starbucks logo on paper, cut it out using scissors, and tape or glue it to the oatmeal container around the middle.


Lastly, use a black sharpie marker to make coffee cup markings on the side of the container similar to a real cup from Starbucks. I looked at a cup and made boxes that were similar for inspiration.

Tips on how to make the best DIY Starbucks Valentine Box:

  • If you don’t have an empty oatmeal container, look around the house for another similar tall tube-shaped bucket or container instead. A wider cardboard shipping tube might work as well.
  • The “frosting” material for this project is actually all-purpose caulk I had on hand in the garage! It looks pretty realistic, doesn’t it? I have also seen similar projects using a bit of insulating foam. If making this with a young child, you’ll want to make sure they don’t try to taste the “frosting”! 😳

My Starbucks fan was super thrilled with her DIY Valentine’s Day box!

I love that this was simple and easy! I know this because we waited until the last second to make it. LOL 😆 We made this for my daughter’s last year in elementary school so it was her last Valentine’s Day at that school to make these adorable Starbucks Valentine boxes. I’m glad we were able to make it a special one. ❤️
