Project Directions

Step One: Heart Light Mold & Resin

The heart light mold is actually for shot glasses or chocolate dessert cups. I decided to use them for cute Valentine’s Day decorations as heart lights.

Mix six ounces of resin, according to the package directions.

Step 2: Separate

Separate the resin equally into three smaller cups.

Step 3: Mix Color for the Hearts

Add the resin colors into each cup and mix well. Use whatever colors you want. If you are thinking Valentine’s Day decorations, maybe you want to stay traditional with red or pink.

If you are thinking wedding decorations, you can customize them to match your wedding colors.

Step 4: Time to Pour
