You will need:

-  Candy hearts:
-  Ring blanks:
-  Glue that bonds plastic and metal:  
-  Parchment paper:
-  Resin (use whatever resin brand you like):
Easy Cast:
Art Resin:
Clear Cast:
FX Poxy: ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500 degrees F and is UV resistant.

Here is the video tutorial:

1.  Select your candy hearts and mix your resin, according to the package directions.  

2.  Use tweezers to dip the hearts into the resin.  Make sure the heart is fully covered.  Allow it to drain and drip a little, before placing it on a piece of parchment paper, or in your coaster mold.

3.  Allow to cure - at least 12 hours.

4.  Peel off of the parchment paper and trim around the edges with an old pair of scissors.  If you have sharp edges, use an old nail file or a rotary tool to smooth them.

5.  Take a toothpick and some glue and glue the resin covered heart to the ring blank.

6.  Allow to dry.

Now you have an adorable ring, perfect for anytime of year!

Thanks for stopping by!  Remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
