Craft It - BFF Colorblocked Heart Necklaces

With Valentine's Day approaching and decorations out in the store in full force, my mind as been lead astray with visions of candy hearts, arrows, and all things pink. Now, you can celebrate the day with the man or woman in your life, but don't forget about your bestie too! She has been there through thick and thin and what better way to show her you love her and all that she is, than by making you both a pair of coordinating BFF necklaces?




The process is pretty quick and resulting pendants are adorable. Just a few craft supplies and you have a gift your friend is sure to love.




The Supplies:
  • Air dry clay
  • Heart cookie cutter
  • Acrylic craft paint in your choice of colors
  • Necklace chain an large jump rings
  • Pliers
  • Paint brush
  • Painters tape


Begin by rolling a piece of air dry clay appx. 1/4 to 3/8" thick. Then use your cookie cutter to cut out your heart shapes. Poke a small hole into the tops of the hearts using a pin, then set aside and let dry.


Once dry, tape off a portion of the hearts and paint the uncovered part of the heart with your paint. Remove the tape within a few minutes of painting the heart.



Once you have your final heart pieces, go ahead and use your pliers to add the jump rings through the holes in the clay hearts and add them to your necklace chain.


Now go find your BFF and tell her how much she means to you and celebrate your friendship this Valentine's Day!
