Today I'm sharing some fun winter chickie hairpins!
I'm using DeNami Stamp Chickie, DeNami Twine, EasyCast Resin, a DeepFlex Mold by Yaley, Castin' Crafts Mold Release, E-6000, StazOn in Jet Black, Glossy Accents, Mod Podge, markers, cardstock, hairpins, and some white glitter.
Stamp some chickies on cardstock and color as desired.
Draw and color some hats and bows (or if you have some in stamp form you can paper piece) and glue them onto the chickies.
Fussy cut your dressed up chickies and add glitter glue as desired.
Coat these little guys, front and back, with about 3 coats of Mod Podge.
Mix up a batch of EasyCast Resin and fill your mold about halfway full.
*ETI recommends wearing gloves for your safety* Gloves also help keep your nails nice!
This is a mold from Yaley Enterprises.
They make resin and Deep Flex Resin Molds along with a variety of colorants.

Submerge the chickies face down in the mold and finish filling the mold cavity with resin.
After about an hour or so to let the resin start to thicken I added a layer of white glitter over the back.
The longer you wait to do this, the less it will sink to the front of the resin piece.
Let this set for 24 - 72 hours until hardened.
The glitter has given a snowy looking background.
I'm turning these cuties into some hairpins using E-6000 and DeNami Twine.
Add a blob of E-6000 to the center of the piece back...
Attach the end of the twine...
Create loops to surround the piece attaching them to the dab of glue, add more glue if needed.
Add some E-6000 to the hairpin...
Press firmly to the center of the piece sandwiching the twine.
Let this set for 24 hours to reach maximum adhesion.
Now these are ready to wear! These would be cute stocking stuffers :)
Now you're headed off to see Donna Bowman's fun project!
