Hearts for Valentine’s Day Decorations | Heart Light Quick Video
Here is the quick video tutorial. You can find the full version at the end of this post and it should answer all your questions.
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
Pour the colored resin into different heart light cavities of the mold.
Step 5: Pop
Pop bubbles with a lighter.
Step 6: Curing Hearts
Allow the hearts to cure at least 12 hours before removing them from the mold.
Step 7: What Makes a Heart Light a Heart Light
To light up the hearts, add little LED lights!
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! ❤️
Step 8: Glue
Brush a small band of glue along the bottom of the hearts.
Step 9: Dippin’ Hearts
Dip the hearts into chunky red glitter.
Allow to dry and brush off any excess.
Remember to add a little LED light. You do not want to use a candle in the hearts!
Maybe you don’t have time to make these little lights, or perhaps you would like other fun Valentine’s Day decorations or gifts…WELL…I found some!
