Easy DIY Clay Heart Mobile Craft

I love decorating my house with handmade items. Awhile back both my boys were really, really into Sculpey Clay (aff link).  In case you've never used this type of clay before, it's AMAZING! Once the clay is softened, you can basically manipulate it like playdough and then bake it in the oven to set it.  That's it! Super, super easy.

We've shared a ton of Sculpey Clay crafts on the blog over the years and today's heart mobile is one of my favorites! Kids can easily mix colors up to make cool, marble-like effects and then help out with cutting out hearts and stringing the whole mobile up too!

Let's Make an Easy Clay Heart Mobile

First, soften your Sculpey Clay by mushing it between your hands. Blend as many or as few colors as you like!

Then, flatten the clay and use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out hearts. Use a wooden skewer to punch holes in the top and bottom of your hearts.

Then, bake your hearts according to the directions on the package. (It's super-fast, like 15 minutes max!)

Then, cut out a long strand of yarn and start stringing on the hearts and beads. (We added some jingle bells to the bottom for a little bit of fun.) Tie a loop on top and you're all set with this one-of-a-kind handmade decoration.

Wondering what to do with all that extra Sculpey clay?  Here are some fun ideas!
