DIY HOT GLUE & GLITTER HEARTS (TO DO WITH WHAT YOU WANT)

January 23, 2018

For less than two dollars, I found a silicone mould for little (approximately 1") hearts, so I bought it! Thank you Dollarama.  But you can probably find one similar at an arts and crafts store.  Since Valentine's is just around the corner, I wanted to experiment.  Can you guess what I used to make these heart shapes below? (Let's pretend you did not read the title.)

 

 

TOOLS & MATERIALS:

 

 

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

 

Let the hot glue gun warm up before attempting this project.  I had mine set to high the whole time. Then squeeze the glue into the heart mould, applying glitter about half way through. Squeeze in more glue until it's full to the top.  Do this for all the hearts.  Let them completely cool, about 45 minutes, before removing them from the mould.

 

 

I decided to make some of mine into magnets.  So to attach the hearts to the magnet rounds, you'll need: more glue! Just add a drop of glue to the magnet before adhering it to the heart.

 

 

 

 

 

Other uses for the hearts: pins (such as, attach them to safety pins to decorate your backpack or coat, or attach them to clothespins to hang things in style), stack them for gaming, or create a shadow art piece.  

 

Happy crafting!
