DIY Valentine Craft Sweetheart Mobile using Dollar Store Items

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!

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

How to make a Valentine's Day Mobile


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!
