DIY Valentine's Day Upcycled Heart Charms


It's Valentine's and everywhere I look is field with red and pink awesomeness, so I was, as you can see, influenced by these colors on this new DIY. This post was also created in collaboration with my friend Zoe from That's Zoe she created a romantic hair and makeup look to go with the necklace.

So if you want to find out how to recreate Zoe's look watch the video bellow, and to see how I made the charms there is also a video and the step-by-step pictures.







To make the charms you will need:
Cereal Box;
Nail polish;
Pencil;
Something to make a small hole;
Permanent marker;
Glue.

1. First of all you will need to make a template, so all the hearts look the same.
2. Trace the shapes onto the back of a cereal box, you will need at least 3 hearts to make each charm.

3. Cut the shapes carefully and glue the 3 layers together.

5. Use red or pink nail polish to paint, you might need to paint two layers.

6. Draw the heart beat with the permanent marker

7. If you want to use the charm on a necklace, get your pliers and attach the chain. You can see one of the pictures bellow, that I also made a layered necklace version by adding another small black heart made with the same material.
