Today, I'm going to be making DIY Valentine earrings with resin. If you've never used resin before, follow this demonstration where I do it myself for the first time and share my experience with you!

You’ll learn how to use resin, the materials you’ll need, and safety precautions for working with resin. But even better, you’ll end up with some cute DIY Valentine’s Day earrings!

Tools and materials:

  • Protective mask and goggles
  • Disposable gloves
  • Two-part epoxy resin
  • Resin colorant
  • Earring molds
  • Measuring cups
  • Mixing sticks
  • Toothpicks
  • Decorative confetti hearts
  • Earring hardware
Wearing protective mask and goggles

1. Get ready and be safe

Resin has a strong toxic smell, so it’s best to work outside or in a well-ventilated area. Before you begin, put on your protective mask and goggles.

Preparing the resin

2. Prepare the resin

Measure ½ cup of each part of the epoxy resin into its own measuring cup. 

Stirring the resin to combine the ingredients

Then, combine both parts in one cup. Stir slowly and carefully to combine, using a stir stick. 

Pouring the resin into a smaller cup

3. Create the molds

Carefully transfer a quarter cup of mixed resin into a smaller measuring cup.

Adding heart confetti to the resin

Cover the surface of the poured resin with decorative heart confetti. 

Stirring the hearts into the resin

Stir the hearts into the resin slowly and carefully using a stir stick. 

How to make resin earrings

Pour the stirred resin and hearts into earring molds. If you need to distribute the hearts more evenly than they have poured out, transfer them from the measuring cup to the mold using a stir stick.

Initially fill the molds only halfway full. Then fill the molds the rest of the way with the plain mixed resin, with no hearts mixed in. That will encapsulate the hearts in your earrings.

Let the resin completely harden in the molds for 24 hours. If you want, you can also use a UV nail light after 24 hours to cure the resin a bit more.

Once the resin has hardened, pop the earrings out of the molds and put them on a flat, dry surface. Don’t put them on parchment paper, because they may still be a bit tacky and will stick to the parchment paper.

You can see how the heart confetti is totally enclosed in the resin.
