In mythology, Cupid is often depicted as a winged child with a quiver full of arrows. If Cupid shot you with one of his arrows, you would fall in love with the first person you set eyes on. Falling in love doesn’t really happen that way but you can still celebrate the day with this heart pin.
For this project I used:
Red Sculpey clay
Heart cookie cutter or template
Tweezers or wax tipped tool
33 - Rose Gold 12ss flat back Swarovski Elements Rhinestones
Roll the red clay out to ¼ of an inch thickness. Using the cookie cutter or template, cut out a heart with an arrow through it. Place on a sheet of white paper on a cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated 275 degree oven for 15 minutes. Allow to cool.
When cool, glue the Rose Gold rhinestones to the arrow part with Gem Tac. Place a drop of Gem Tac on the heart and place a rhinestone in the middle of the glue drop using the tweezers or wax tipped tool. In the middle of the heart, glue 6 Rose Gold rhinestones. Allow to dry flat for 24 hours.
When completely dry, turn the pin over and glue a pin to the back. Again, allow to dry flat for 24 hours.
Whether you’ve been struck by Cupid’s heart or not, you can still say I love you with this easy to make heart pin.
I have been adding bling for over 20 years. Through my projects, I hope you find inspiration.
