Easy Tractor Valentine’s Day Box

I recently made my son this fast and easy Valentine’s Day tractor box. This is his first year of preschool and he can’t wait for the big V-Day party coming up. It’s so cute to see him all excited to give cards to his friends. We love the way this little box turned out, so today I am sharing this simple DIY for any tractor loving boys in your life.

Easy John Deer Tractor Valentine's Day Box

The first step is obviously getting your boxes. You’ll need one longer box and one shorter one. Here’s what I used:

Then tape the boxes together nice and tight like I have done here. Then make sure to cut out a spot in the center of the lower box for the V-Day cards.

Next simply take green construction paper and glue it on to the box. I used a heavy duty glue stick for this and it worked fine. My strategy was to lay a whole sheet of paper on the longer sides, glue it, then cut around the edges of the box to trim the excess off.

I also discovered that using a razor blade was a good way to get a really close cut to the edges of the box. This age me a closer cut than my scissors.

Continue this around until you have the entire box covered in the green paper.

Next take black paper and trace out one set of larger circles and one set of smaller circles. These will be for the tractor tires.

Do the same process with yellow paper, but make the corresponding circles slightly smaller. Then glue the yellow circles on the black ones. I told you this was easy, right?

Now glue those babies on! I also used black paper for the windows of the cab. You can add any other embellishments that you want. Fortunately, I had an old John Deere tractor book sitting around, so I cut a few of the labels off and glued them on the front and the back.

Done!

It’s basically like heaven in a jar & I CANNOT wait for you to have this bake-y goodness in your home this fall! 🥧👏🏻
  • I finally got the botanical prints + old door project finished 🌿🙌🏻 What do you guys think?! It was kinda tricky figuring out where to hang these prints, but so many of you voted for this spot in stories & I think it’s perfect 👏🏻👏🏻 The floral prints are from @walmart & I LOVE them. I have an obsession with botanical artwork & these are my new favorite. This is all on the blog today & I also linked up a bunch of other botanical prints from Walmart here: http://liketk.it/2Ea9s #liketkit @liketoknow.it #ad #LTKhome
  • Spent the day in jammies, snuggling my sick kiddos + watching all of their favorite movies 😍 I hate seeing them sick, especially since we’re only a few days into the new school year, but I sure do love these simple days when they need me the most. Nothing else matters more than this right here ❤️👏🏻 http://liketk.it/2E8FG #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Did a little switcheroo in my vanity area & added in a new rug 🙌🏻😍 I actually took it from the back deck, so it’s technically not new, but it sure adds a lot of pizazz to this spot, right?! Much more cozy now 👏🏻👏🏻 Do you move things around in your home from one room to another? I do it all the time & it’s an easy way to freshen things up without spending any money! http://liketk.it/2E70b #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome
  • My little kitchen island is one of my favorite things in our home + I always get so many questions about it. It was actually made from reclaimed barn wood & we’ve had it over 10 years now 😍😍 I bought it when we moved into our first home & it’s been with us ever since. I kinda have an emotional connection to it now—it’s been through so much with us. Do you have furniture like that?? I’ll probably still have this island in my kitchen when I’m an old granny! 👵🏻❤️
