1. I had these little mini muffin hearts for a while and thought it was time to put them to use! My friend Alejandra sent them to me and I liked that they have the little recessed area.
2. I mixed some resin – one ounce will go a long way!
3. In the first charm, I put light pink glitter and mixed it up.
4. I slowly dripped the mixture into two of the heart molds.
5. I used fine red glitter for the second one and mixed it up.
6. I dripped that into another mold.
7. In the final one, I added gold microbeads and mixed it up.
8. I poured that into a mold.
9. I used my lighter and popped the bubbles and let them cure for a minimum of 12 hours.
10. Once cured, I removed them from the molds.
11. I mixed a small amount of resin and little heart glitter.
12. I carefully dripped it into the recessed areas.
13. Then, I popped the bubbles with my lighter.
14. I mixed some fine pink glitter and resin and dripped it into the recess on the gold microbeads.
15. I used a skewer stick to help it go to the edges.
16. I used my lighter to pop the bubbles.
17. I mixed blue microbeads and resin to put into the center of the red one.
18. I used my lighter to pop all the bubbles and let it all cure for a minimum of 12 hours.
19. I pulled out my collection of eye screws…
… and drilled a small hole into the hearts.
20. Then, I screwed in the eye screws.
That’s it! No you can attach a chain, a ribbon or a cord, to make it a necklace. Or, you can also attach it to a keychain.
