Branch Heart Mobile, Valentines Day Wall Art

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 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!

Valentine Sweetheart Mobile


  • 3 Glitter Heart Hangers {$3 Dollar Tree}
  • Decorative Straws {$3 Target Dollar Section}
  • Bakers Twine {$1 Target Dollar Section}
  • Gold adhesive backed paper or felt
  • Nylon thread
  • A tree branch from my yard
  • Hot glue & gun
  • Sharp scissors
Dollar Store valentine crafts


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

Make an 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.

Straw arrow for mobile

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.

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 down the string 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.

How to string up a mobile

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

    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!
