Fimo Heart Name Charms

February 16, 2013
By

I finally got round to finishing these little love hearts last night; rather late as a Valentine craft so I think I might start my Mother's Day crafting with them instead!

At Christmas I was given mica powders to play with; these are cheap to buy on eBay, a scrapbooking material that seems to have a lot of uses and be lots of fun (if potentially rather messy!)

I cut fimo hearts out using a cookie cutter in red, pink and lilac (I lie, Maddy did this bit for me in fact :) ) and then experimented with different powder layers on top of each other until I had a different look for each heart.

Last year I bought some metal letter stamps from eBay too, which were £10 for the box. There is a bit of a knack to them but I managed to stencil each of my children's names on to a heart and then decorate the rest to suit. With some of them I did a layer of powder afterwards to accentuate the letters a little.

Before I baked them I pushed a stick/skewer into the bottom to make a hole, baked and then filled the hole with liquid fimo, added a skewer again and baked so it was solid. You could just use glue (but I couldn't find any!)

Maddy decorated a jar for me with twists of wool glued on in a random pattern and pushed plasticine into the bottom. It holds my six children just perfectly :)
