Make a shimmery heart mobile to decorate your room with for Valentine's day!

This sweet heart mobile was inspired by a decorative item at Pottery Barn.  Go glam this Valentine’s Day by using Metallic Oly-Fun fabric to create this pretty piece of home decor. I love the way the metallic Oly-Fun catches the light!  The red color seems to vary from deep red to pink depending on how the light hits it!

Cut a 2 inch wide piece of metallic Oly-Fun fabric in red.

Cut the strip into squares and rectangles of varying sizes.  Place two pieces of fabric together with the wrong sides touching.

Cut a heart shape from the two pieces. Keep the pair together.

Cut 29 pairs of red hearts and one pair of gold hearts.  Arrange them in5 rows of 6 hearts.

Roll the front half of each heart pair through the Xyron Creative Station to make stickers of them.

Peel the adhesive backed heart off the sheet.

Place gold thread over the heart with adhesive.

Place the matching heart on top of the string and press firmly.

Cut arrow heads and feather tips from Gold Metallic Oly-Fun.

Wrap the dowel rods with the gold thread.

Use hot glue to assemble the “arrows” and to glue the rods together.

Tie the rows of hearts on the arrows as pictured.

I hung the heart mobile over my dining room table.  It adds a festive feeling to all our meals.  For more Valentine’s day decor that you can make, check out this round up of ideas.  Have fun crafting and creating for Valentine’s Day!
