Valentine’s Day Heart Shaped Wine Charms

Valentine’s Day will be here in less than a month! As you plan your romantic dinners or perhaps a night with some girlfriends, here are some sweet and sparkly little wine charms you can create in no time at all…and they feature our material of the month, clay!

Wine Charms

Sculpey Soufflé Clay {white}
clay tools or rolling pin and toothpick
Mini Metal Cutters: Basic Shapes {heart}
– Mod Podge, any formula
– fine glitter {we used Martha Stewart glitter}
– foil lined baking sheet
wire hoops
– jump rings
– pliers


Step 1: Work the white clay in your hands until it softens, then use an acrylic roller {or rolling pin} and roll it out to about 1/8″ thickness.

Step 2: Use the mini heart shaped cutter to cut however many charms you want from the rolled clay.

Step 3: With a clay tool or toothpick, poke a hole in each heart. I wanted mine to hang on a diagonal, so I made the hole in upper left hand “bump” of the heart. If you prefer for it to hang straight, you can make the hole in the center. Make sure the hole goes all the way through to the back and is large enough to accommodate a jump ring.


Step 4: Place the hearts on a foil lined baking sheet and bake according to package instructions. These took 15 minutes at 275 degrees Farenheit. Remove from the oven when time is up and allow them to cool completely before continuing.


Step 5: Spread Mod Podge or glue on each heart and sprinkle your choice of glitter on top. You can glitter just the top, or you can also do the sides and back. If you’re going to glitter all the surfaces, just start with the top, then when it’s dry, flip it over and do the rest.


Step 6: Add a jump ring to each heart and attach it to a wire hoop.


Now your charms are ready to use!


If you like, you can add beads to make them extra fancy, but I like the simple look. What do you think? Would you use these for your Valentine’s Day date night?


P.S. Random note – If you happen to be a Moscato fan like I am, especially if you frequent the Olive Garden, you might be interested to know that this is what they serve there…Castello del Poggio Moscato Provincia di Pavia. It’s super sweet and fruity, and one of my faves! You’re welcome!
