How to Make a Polymer Clay Heart Keychain Crafts Idea for Kids on Valentines Day

How to Make a Polymer Clay Heart Key Chain Crafts Idea for Kids on Valentines Day


– toothpick
– red and white polymer clay (I placed the toothpick beside it to see how much polymer clay you need)
– roll (you can use anything tubular – I use a recipient for Vitamines 😀 )
– baking paper
– baking tray
– keychain cord
– 1 jumpring

Step 1.

Condition red polymer clay by hand, simply mix it and squish it with your fingers. You may want to roll it into a log between your palms, fold it in half, and then roll again.

Step 2.

Make a ball of it and flatten it.


Step 3.

Gently squish one part, to form the lower part of the heart.

Step 4.

Use the toothpick to shape the upper part of the heart.

This is the heart 🙂

Step 5.

Place it on a piece of baking paper.

Use the toothpick again to make a hole in the upper left side.

Take care that the toothpick goes through the heart and get out on the other part.

Step 6.

Condition the white polymer clay too.

Step 7.

Make a small roll of white…

… and place it on the heart. Make a crease on it to fix it on the heart, like in the picture:

Add three more white petals.

Step 8.

Make a tiny white ball…

… and place it in the middle of the petals.

Step 9.

If you like, place two more petals on the opposite corner, for balance.

Step 10.

Now you’ll need the help of an adult.
Place the heart (with it’s piece of baking paper) on the baking tray, and bake it accordingly to the instructions on the polymer clay package (they depend on the brand you use: fimo, cernit, sculpey…, but usually is one half of hour at 230 F or 110 C)

Step 11.

Let it cool down.

Step 12.

Open the jumpring (I use a pliers for that)…

… put it through the hole that you made in the heart…

And through the keychain cord base.

Step 13.

Close the jumpring and the keychain is ready 🙂
