Valentine Mobile UpCycle

My inspiration for this was 3 different pins:


&



So I got a lampshade from my mom, ripped all the paper off of it and there was just the frame left.



Then I just cut out strips of fabric from my scrap pile, just hot glued in a corner and then wrapped around the whole wire frame.

Then I cut out felt hearts from sheets of felt...I used my trusty AccuQuilt to do this part since it cuts out PERFECT hearts every time.

I also used a punch to cut out paper hearts. Sewed them in strips and hung them from the frame and then hung the whole thing with fishing line from my dining table.







My girls love this hanging in the dining room!
