DIY Valentine's Day Upcycled Heart Charms


Valentine's day is coming up and every store is already filled with red and pink awesomeness so I was, as you can see, influenced by these colors on this new DIY.

You can watch the step-by-step detailed video or read the text version below.




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.

6. Draw the heartbeat 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 below, that I also made a layered necklace version by adding another small black heart made of the same material.
