Heart Valentine’s Day Ornament | Glitter In Resin

I found a metal heart Valentine’s Day ornament. When I saw it, I grabbed it and ran to the checkout! It was immediately added to my Valentine crafts list! Like the Metal and Glitter Christmas Ornament I made, I wanted to make a pretty heart with glitter in resin.

Valentine’s Day Heart Supplies:

  • Metal heart form – I found mine at Michaels. They don’t carry them anymore BUT these heart trays are amazing alternatives
  • Chunky red glitter
  • Half pearls
  • Interesting things to put in it – I had a wood wish, metal heart, and a metal Love.
  • Glue

Heart Valentine’s Day Ornament Directions:

Step 1: Glue It!

Take your Ultimate glue and run it along the inside seams of the ornament. If you have a hole where the string comes through, plug it up with glue too. Do it on the front and backside, if it is a double-sided ornament. This prevents the resin from running through. Allow to completely dry.

Step 2: Glitter in Resin

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

Oooh! The sparkle!

Step 3: Pour, Pop, Cure!

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

Now it’s starting to look like a heart Valentine’s Day ornament!

Step 4: Embellish

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.

Step 5: More Resin

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

A Couple of Tips!

*If anything does not make sense, be sure to watch the full video at the end of this post. It should clear up any of your questions!

  • 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 the heart Valentine's Day ornament 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 was level.
Use level to make sure metal Valentine's Day heart is level

Once you have it set, you can decorate the second side as you would like. Might I suggest a little glitter in resin?

Have fun with it! I’d LOVE to see what you make! Be sure to share it over on my Craft Klatch Facebook Group! It’s Free! ❤️
