Valentine’s Day Chocolate Boxes: Fabulous Finds Friday

How to Display Vintage Valentine’s Day Chocolate Boxes

If you love vintage Valentine’s Day chocolate boxes this is a quick and easy way to display them.

I love to display hearts around my home at any time of the year, like my repurposed scarf floral heart wreath.

I’m not a neutral girl during any season, but especially not in winter. 

I need color all the time, but I really need it in winter to help stop me from going into hibernation mode.

So I’m always looking for fun and colorful things to hang as art.

So when I found these vintage heart-shaped chocolate boxes for just $1 each I simply couldn’t resist them.

And of course the red didn’t hurt either.

I thought they’d be a sweet addition to my aqau and red kitchen.

They do have a few scuffs and scrapes, but that’s ok.

It just gives them even more character.

I’ve had this $2 thrifted plate hanger for years.

I’m not a plate collector, but these can be used in so many other ways, like these decoupaged photos on canvas frames for example.

I spray painted the plate hanger with an aqua blue paint and primer combo, and hung it in the kitchen between the door to the kitchen porch and the basement door.

This is the perfect place for my vintage Valentine’s Day chocolate boxes display.

I did have these vintage wooden pictures displayed here, but I moved them somewhere else.

Aren’t they sweet?

And just the right size for the plate hanger.

The combo of aqua and red is a favorite of mine, especially now with the cold and snowy weather outside.

Our winters here can make me feel a little sleepy and lazy.

Honestly, in winter I can take a cat nap at almost any time of the day. lol.

So I need my decor to be bright and happy even more than usual, to help keep me wide-eyed and energized.

    Looks sweet! ? I’ve got several Valentine candy boxes to decorate with. Such fun. I’ll have to keep my eyes open for a plate hanger. ?

  3. Well, something else I would have never thought of! Really is cute! Dona

  4. They look great Tuula! It just so happens that I have one of those hangers and I didn’t know what to do with it but now I do. I never would have thought of using it to hang other things rather than plates. Again you have come through for me without even trying lol! I recall seeing some vintage valentine chocolate heart boxes a couple of years ago and they were quite pricey but as usual you found them for peanuts.
    I really like the red and aqua too!

    1. Thanks Pam! You can really hang so many things with those plate hangers. I’m so glad I gave you an idea. 🙂

    Wonderful idea. Just want you to know although I haven’t been commenting I’ve been watching your site. My husband has been gravely ill so I just look and run.

    1. Thanks Laura! I’m so sorry your husband is ill. I’ll be thinking of you and sending good thoughts your way. 🙂
