Valentine’s Day Charms
These little charms are so sweet (I know, excuse the pun but I couldn’t help it) that I can hardly stand their cuteness. They are a perfect accent for any sweet Valentine to wear all month long. When Maya Road released their Vintage Glass Memory Vials I was so excited because they are the perfect miniature size for charms of any kind. You get 10 Vintage Glass Memory Vials, five of each size per package. I’m going to make a few using the sand I brought back from Greece and Italy then metal stamp a charm with Mykonos and Bellagio to attach to each vial as a fun memento. I love funky jewelry and plan on having loads of fun with these.
The supplies needed needed to make your charms are a package of Maya Road Vintage Glass Memory Vials, Wilton Sprinkles Heart Mix and Valentine Nonpareils, Tim Holtz idea-ology Screw Eyes and Aleene’s Tacky Glue.
- Simply pour the Wilton Sprinkles into each Vintage Glass Memory Vial
- Place a Tim Holtz idea-ology Screw Eye into the top of each cork
- Apply a small amount of Aleene’s Tacky glue around the side of the cork then place the cork back into the vial. Make sure you press the cork as firmly into the vial as possible.
- Once the glue is dry attach your Valentine Charm to your Necklace. I used a simple ball chain for my necklace.
It’s that simple. If you want to see the products used here is the 6 second tutorial I posted on Vine, last week… Valentine’s Day Charms
