Growing up, Valentine's Day began at breakfast. My mom would set a place at the table for each of my sisters and me with cards, candy and perhaps a little gift. It was simple, and it always made me smile. I hope to create those memories for my girls, too.
As a start, I made this simple mobile to hang above the table. I found the inspiration here, but since I don't have a sewing machine, I just made felt hearts. Here's what you need:
Twine (or ribbon)
Stiffened felt (or two layers or regular felt glued together)
Glue gun, craft glue or double-sided tape (optional)
Washi tape (optional)
Cut several hearts from stiffened felt in a variety of colors and sizes. Use more felt and/or washi tape to embellish hearts.
Punch a hole near the top of each heart (or two holes, one at the top and one at the bottom, if you’re going to hang another heart below it). Assemble sticks into mobile using twine. Tie twine to hearts in varying combinations, then tie to sticks. Hang mobile from ceiling or chandelier.
When I showed Cricket the mobile, she exclaimed: "Oh! What beautiful hearts!" Nora did this:
