Valentine's Day Key Chain Charm
Valentine's Day craft projects don't have to be over-the-top. Create a Valentine's Day Key Chain Charm from Candace Jedrowicz using polymer clay and craft foil. Wear your heart on your sleeve (and your keys) all year long - you'll love showing off your creation to your friends and family.
- Polymer clay – I used red and pink
- Pasta machine or rolling pin
- Craft foil – also red and pink
- Cookie cutter – mini heart shape
- Crochet needle
- Bone folder or piece of paper for burnishing
- 20 gauge wire
- Jump rings
- Chain, clasp
- Crystals and assorted beads
- Round nose pliers
- Chain nose pliers
- Clear dimensional sealer
Condition clays and roll to about 1/8″ thickness or the second thickest setting on the pasta roller.
Lay the craft foil on the clay and follow the package directions for applying.
Cut 2 hearts.
Cut a 1″ piece of wire. Fold it over the round nose pliers. Crimp the wire to form a loop. Turn the ends up. This will hold the loop in place when the 2 pieces are in place.
Put the clay hearts together, back to back with the loop in place. Push lightly to join together. Bake according to package directions.
When the clay is cooled add a layer of clear dimensional sealer. Allow to dry. Repeat on the other side.
Fix the clasp to one end of the chain.
- Use jump rings to add the heart(s), and beads to the charm.
