Turn an Oatmeal Container Into a Starbucks Frappuccino Valentine’s Day Box!
Consider recycling an empty oatmeal container into a fun frappucino looking Valentine’s Day box or container! This fun craft will result in an ADORABLE container that you can use for Valentine’s Day or even keep year-round as a storage container!
My daughter and I made this Starbucks inspired container last year 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!
Not celebrating in-class this year?
Currently many kids are attending school remotely and in-class Valentine’s may look a lot different this year due to COVID-19, but we thought this is still a fun and frugal project to share for creative inspiration this year or perhaps to use in the future! I think this could make such a wonderful teacher appreciation gift too filled with school supplies and more.
Tips for creating the BEST DIY Starbucks Frappuccino container:
- If you don’t have an empty oatmeal container, look around the house for another similar tall tube-shaped bucket or container instead.
- The frosting looking material for this project is actually construction caulking 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, obviously you’ll want to make sure they don’t try to taste the “frosting”! 😳
- I loved using one of these handy all-in-one disposable pastry piping bags with a tip for this project because you can toss afterward. I’m sure you can possibly use a metal tip if you clean it right away before it dries.

My Starbucks fan was super thrilled with her 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 😆 This was my daughter’s last year in elementary school so it was her last Valentine’s Day at that school to make these adorable boxes. I’m glad we were able to make it a special one. ❤️
