Heart Resin Charms DIY | Resin Crafts | Craft Klatch

Create Heart Resin Charms!  An easy resin Valentine's Day craft tutorial!  

Here is a quick video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made them:

You will need:Heart molds: Fine red glitter: Fine pink glitter: Microbeads: Chunky glitter: Heart glitter: Eye screws: Resin (use whatever resin brand you like): Easy Cast: Art Resin: Clear Cast: This is the resin I used for this project: FX Poxy: ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500 degrees F and UV resistant.


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.

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