What you need to make the chain of hearts garden mobile

How to make a Chain of Hearts Garden Mobile

Cover the card stock on both sides with aluminium tape. I love using self-adhesive aluminium tape, it’s much cheaper than pewter, and it sticks like crazy. One roll goes a loooooooong way, and it’s waterproof too.  

Stick the aluminium tape down on both sides of the cardstock

If you have an embossing machine, you can add some texture and patterns for a little extra oomph. If you don’t have one, don’t worry. You can use a pen to doodle on the tape too.

Emboss the aluminium tape

Using scissors, cut out lots of hearts from the aluminium-covered card stock. They can be any size or shape. The amount you need will depend on how big your lampshade is. I cut out about 80 hearts, in different sizes.

Cut out a whole bunch of heart shapes in different sizes

Make a small hole at the top and bottom of each heart and string the hearts together using the fishing line. Finally, leave a 20 cm piece of line to tie the strings to the lamp shape.

Add as many “heart strings” as you like until you’re happy, and then hang the Chain of Hearts mobile under a shade tree or outside your bedroom window and watch those hearts dance gently in the wind.

I think Vincent van Gogh was so right when he said, “If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.” And I must say, I really enjoy how the Chain of Hearts looks in the garden.
