Heart necklace ▪ FIMO kids DIY | STAEDTLER

Step-by-step tutorial

Two portions of FIMO kids “pink” are required for the dark hearts. Shape into a ball and first press it flat by hand. Then roll out the mixture until it is smooth. To ensure that the rolled out FIMO is evenly thin, place two spacers (e.g. flat wooden sticks) on the left and right next to the mixture on the table and then roll a glass over them.

1 FIMO Block = 1 portion

Tip: Clean the work surface and your hands with a damp cloth before proceeding with a new FIMO colour in the next step. 

Place the flat rolled mixture on baking paper and use a cutter to cut out a large and a small heart. Repeat steps one and two for the bright hearts. At the end, you should have cut out two small hearts and two large hearts: one in light pink and one in dark pink.

Now press the small hearts onto the large hearts in the other colour.

Next, use a toothpick to pierce a small hole in each of the hearts. Both heart pendants are now hardened in the oven for 30 minutes at 110°C. Get help from an adult!

As soon as the hearts have cooled down, the fun continues! Now bend open the split rings with pliers and thread them through the holes that were previously punched. Then close the rings again by bending them back to their original shape.

Now you just have to thread the necklaces through the split rings and the heart necklaces are finished!
