Valentine’s Day Craft
I may be a bit nuts, but I am still making Valentine’s Day crafts. I love these projects and I will likey continue making them. I think I might be addicted to Valentine’s Day craft projects. Just when I think I have come up with enough projects I am back in my craft room coming up with something else. One of my favorite items to craft with is clay. I have used clay a lot in the past. Some of my crafts include making metallic valentine hearts, Christmas glitter ornaments, and ornaments that represented fifty things that were important to our family in an entire year. I wanted to make some valentine clay ornaments this year that were colorful and fun and a bit rustic. I love how these came out. They look so much better than I thought they would. Today I am part of a blog hope as nearly thirty bloggers are sharing their favorite Valentine’s Day.
What You Need to Make the Valentine’s Day Craft Hearts
Air Hardening Modeling Clay Heart Shaped Cookie Cutters here, here, or here. Acrylic Paints (I used alizarin red, pink, white, cad yellow, and burnt umber) Rubber Stamps (writing, music, any small design) Sculpey Gloss Glaze Paint Brush Copper wire
How to Make the Valentine’s Clay Hearts
First, roll out the clay with a rolling pin to about 1/4 or 1/8 inch. Cut out with heart-shaped cookie cutters. To add a design to the ornament, press each heart on to a rubber stamp and add a firm touch to imprint. Use a wooden skewer to put holes in the top of each heart. Let dry overnight, Pick out acrylic paints that fit your color palette. Paint each heart, paying special attention to the edges and back All edges and sides should be painted. Let dry. Onc dry, paint with Sculpey gloss glaze to add shine. When done, add wire for hanging. Don’t these look amazing? I just love them. I can’t wait to use these as napkin holders and more. I absolutely love these painted hearts. I think I just might have to hang them all over our home. They look good anywhere in your home.

I love those clay hearts! Doing the imprinting with the sheet music/other letters is a great idea. 🙂
Help!!! I followed your directions exactly. After the glaze dried, mine looked cloudy ☹️. Did the glaze need to be baked on?
I am including these gorgeous hearts in a “Weekend Internet Finds” link list on my blog. I hope that is ok? Of course it will be linked back to you and I only used on photo.
