Valentine’s Day accessory: Collar heart pin

Valentine's Day heart collar pin tutorial

Ok, this heart collar pin I’ll be wearing not only during Valentine’s Day, but all year round. Is it not the cutest?! Ashley does it again! This one is super simple to make and as you can see, super adorable as worn by Carli above.

And I have to tell you, my skin has been the best it’s been in many many months. I hope it’s not just a trend but a long lasting solution. I’ll let you know how that goes.

Directions:
– Condition both colors of polymer clay (this video shows you how to do it). I found sticking the clay between two sheets of parchment paper and rolling it with a rolling pin to work well.
– Marble the pink and red polymer clay together. I used this tutorial, but instead of putting it through a pasta roller I put the clay between two sheets of parchment paper and rolled it out with a rolling pin until the clay was about .5 cm thick.
– Cut out the heart from the template. Lay the template on the marbled polymer clay and cut around the piece using an x-acto knife. You may want to practice on extra clay first until you’re confident in getting a smooth cut. Repeat for a second heart.
– Lay your clay pieces on a baking sheet and bake according to the directions on the clay packaging.
-After clay has cooled, use e6000 glue to glue a tie tack to the back of each heart.
-Use wire cutters to cut two lengths of silver jewelry chain (a 4.5″ piece and a 4″ piece). Glue one end of each chain to the back of each heart. Allow to dry.
