Step 1: Watch the Video Tutorial Here!

Step 2: You'll Need

Famowood Glaze Coat

Screws and nuts

Adjustable hose clamps

Buttons, glitter, beads and Confetti

Craft knife

Cardboard

Plastic cups

Silicone mold

Step 3: Prepare the Cardboard

Cut your cardboard in squares

Cut out section of the cardboard so you can slip on the hose clamp just under the screw

*Make sure it's secure

Cut small holes in the center of the cardboard squares for the screws

Step 4: Prepare the Glaze Coat Epoxy/Resin

Mix equal parts of the Glaze Coat for 5 minutes

Pour 1/4" in each mold

Step 5: Fill, Cure and Remove

Fill with your glitter, buttons and confetti

Pour the Glaze Coat almost to the top of the mold, but not quite

If you notice bubbles, blow on top of the filled hearts until they pop

Carefully position the head of the screw inside a Glaze Coat filled heart

Position the screw part of the hose clamp inside the heart

Make sure the cardboard does not touch the Glaze Coat

Let dry overnight OUTSIDE under a cardboard box or in part of the house you're not occupying

Step 6: Remove and You're Done!

Carefully remove the cardboard and sand the edges at the base if you need to.
