DIY Valentine Craft Sweetheart Mobile using Dollar Store Items madeinaday.com

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner me and 13 of my favorite bloggers got together to Share Valentine’s Day crafts on a Budget! We were given a budget of no more than $10 and challenged us to to create a Valentine’s Day craft using items from the dollar store or dollar section of their local stores. Here is how I made my Valentine Sweetheart Mobile!

Instructions:

 The glitter heart hangers are strung on fishing line. Cut them loose and separate them out by size.

DIY arrow from a straw

To make the arrows: Take  a decorative straw and cut it down to around 4 inches. Pinch the end of the straw together and hot glue the small solid hearts to the end of the straw.

Simple arrow make from decorative straws

Cut the feather end of the arrow out of gold adhesive back paper cut small slits in the paper and stick it to the end of the arrow. Make three and set aside.

How to make a mobile

Lay the tree branch out and line up your hearts in a random order so they compliment each other. Add in your arrows. Take needle and nylon thread and string up the hearts in the order you chose. To keep the hearts from moving add a dot of glue to the string and pull your heart over the glue. Let the glue dry. Hot glue the arrows to the string.

Tree branch mobile

Tie the strings to the tree branch and put  dot of glue on the knot. Tie your bakers twine to the branch, hang it up and enjoy! And that’s it! Super cute easy craft and completely inexpensive!

  1. This is adorable! I l LOVE how this turned out! Those glitter hearts are so pretty, and the color really pops against the wall and adds a perfect bit of Valentine’s Day decor to your home!

  2. Your crafts are always so cute and creative! I’m going to have to go back to the dollar store to get some of these glitter house to make one of these.

  3. I am participating in the Budget Crafts Blog Hop too. I love how this turned out! I just got rid of some of those hearts in pink. Maybe I should go pull them out of the donation box! Thanks for the great idea!
