It's easy to make your own painted heart jewelry. Use heart metal jewelry blanks like the ones shown above. Create a necklace or charm bracelet. Attach a bead ball chain or make into earrings by clipping on fish hooks. See image on right & click to buy on Amazon.
How to: You will need assorted quality acrylic paints like Folk Art brand or tube style artist paints. Use a fine point artist brush. Experiment with your design on paper before making the final painting on the metal jewelry.To protect your painting (when it is dry) paint a clear satin or gloss coat using water based varnish.

I have posted links to supplies at the end of this post for you to check out. First, right click on the Halloween clip art image and save to your computer. Load the image in a editing software program to size then print.
Next, Place the clear paper over the image - then cut the image to size. Beforehand, you will want to size your image in your photo editing program before you print.
Once you have cut the clear paper and paper image, spread white glue on the back evenly with a clean square artist brush. Smooth the image onto the wood square. Keep smoothing out any bubbles and excess glue out the edges until there is no more glue left to come out. Around the edges of the wood, make sure all is smooth and there are no rough edges. You can use a cardboard nail file to file the edges, if needed.
Let glue dry overnight for best results. Glue a button magnet on the back if magnet,
Glue on a bail if its a wood pendant,
Glue a pin back on the back if its a button,
Glue a length of ribbon on the back if its a ornament.
