Saw this idea online and knew it had to be done!



Needs a standard Valentines heart box or you can make one out of cardboard.  I bought a bunch of boxes last year on clearance, put the chocolates in the freezer for later and kept the boxes for crafties. 

Chocolate Heart Box
Styrofoam
Air dry clay
paint - chocolate browns and creamy white
3D puffy paint - white pink and/or black (I used black instead of brown because I didn't want to buy a new brown)
cupcake liners
hot glue
ribbons for hanging and edging

I cut styrofoam into chocolatey shapes and then painted them, as the idea I saw online, but I used a more open styrofoam and hated the way it looked.  Not realistic enough for me.  So I used those as a base and rolled air dry clay out super thin to cover. 



Smooth it as best you can, and then let it dry.  After it was dry, I even sanded them down a bit to smooth it out even more.
Arrange in your box to make sure you have enough and a layout you like.



Paint with your chocolatey colors.


Then use your puffy paint to make designs on the top.


Dry and then hot glue inside cupcake liners in your box.  Use your ribbon to ruffle some edges on if you'd like and make a hanger.



Mmmm.... yummy....ish.

ACK! I love this SO MUCH! I'm going to keep my eyes open for some clearance heart boxes after Valentine's Day this year, because I'm pretty sure I MUST make this. [swoons]

Thanks for the tut!

WOW! Thanks for the tutorial!  The wreath is fun and realistic...so much so that I am surprised a few pieces have not gone missing! lol

I love how you used the puffy paint as if it were chocolate...just like a real chocolatier!
