I’m excited to share another fun Valentine’s Day craft with you today. One of the most iconic symbols of Valentine’s Day is the colorful conversation heart.
Using modeling clay, I made some cute conversation heart rings and magnets that are perfect to wear, display, or give to your valentine! They are really quite simple to make, and very addicting too. Bet you can’t make just one!
Conversation Heart Rings & Magnets Supplies:
- Crayola Model Magic Clay
- Darice Ring Blanks
- Darice Heavy Duty Magnets
- E-6000 Adhesive
- Small Alphabet Stamps
- Acrylic Paint (in conversation heart colors and red)
- Wood Skewer Stick
Step 1. Take a small piece of modeling clay and roll it into a ball. From there, use your fingers to shape the clay into a heart shape. The wood skewer stick can help form the top middle of the heart.
Let the clay dry thoroughly and harden by leaving it out, which might take a day or two. This type of clay does not go in the oven, but air dries.
Once dry, add a few drops of water to a small amount of red craft paint, and mix. Use a tiny paintbrush or your wood skewer to carefully “paint” in the indented letters on each heart, to make them look like real conversation hearts. Let dry.
Step 4. Use a small amount of E-600 glue to adhere the hearts to each ring blank, and the hearts to the small magnets. E-6000 is a very very strong glue, but can take 24 hours to cure and harden completely. Resist the urge to touch, and leave your hearts alone for 24 hours.
