Sparkle Heart Necklaces by Cassandra Midkiff
My daughter is having a birthday tea party and I have been trying to come up with special things to put into favor bags besides overdosing them on sugar. I’ve come up with these very simple but cute heart necklaces. I picked up some 1” glass charms from Wal-Mart for a few dollars.
I took one of the glass pieces and traced out squares of scrapbook paper. Then I traced out some hearts in pencil and filled them in with my Designer Dries Clear adhesive. Next I sprinkled on my Art Glitter! I used mostly Ultrafine Opaque and Ultrafine Transparent glitters in shades like #14 Lavender, #144 Miss Muffet, #98 Amethyst, #202 Pansy, #87 Hot Kiss, #16 Blackberry, Ultrafine Hologram #247 Moulin Rouge, and many more.
Once they were dry I put the glass over them and slid them back into the charm pieces then strung them on some ball chain necklaces. I may end up adding some Glass Beads as well. These would make easy and sweet Valentines gifts too!
