Resin Metal Glitter Heart DIY ~ Craft Klatch Valentine’s Day Series

I found a metal glitter ornament in the shape of a heart, which I added to my Valentine crafts list! Like the  Metal and Glitter Christmas Ornament I made, I wanted to make a pretty heart with resin and glitter.

Supplies:

Directions:

  1. Take your Ultimate glue and run it along the inside seams of the ornament and the hole where the string comes through.  Do it on the front and backside. This prevents the resin from running through.  Allow to completely dry.

2. Mix 3-4 ounces of resin and mix in a bunch of chunky red glitter.

3. Pour the glitter resin mixture into the heart, pop bubbles with the lighter and allow to cure at least 12 hours.

4. Now it’s time to add your embellishments. I glued on the half pearls and painted and glued on the wood wish. Allow the glue to completely dry.

5. Mix another 3-4 ounces of resin and pour over the embellishments. Pop bubbles with your lighter and allow to cure.

6. Now you want to repeat on the other side.

Here are a couple of tips:

Allow the first side to completely cure. Read the directions that came with your resin to find the cure time. You don’t want to leave any dents in the finished side by flipping it over too soon.

Raise metal heart on bottle caps

When you flip it over, it is unlikely that it will lay level. I put water bottle caps under the edges to raise it up and used a level to make sure it laid level.

Use level to make sure metal heart is level

Now decorate the second side as you would like.

If you don’t have time to make a heart, or just don’t want to (no judgement here!), there are so many beautiful handmade heart decorations available!
