Recycled shrinky dinks are one of the best and easiest recycled crafts out there. They are made from #6 plastic and permanent markers, both items that can be found in most households.
With this shrinky dink project, you will learn how to make an anatomically correct heart charm. Although it may seem somewhat morbid to some, to me the image of a real heart conveys science and love at the same time. Teach kids about reducing waste and anatomy at the same time.
I’m a sucker for minimal design. I love a natural wood and simple lines. It can get a little boring in home decor, but small trinkets like this little pendant make a big impact to me. I love the juxtaposition of the hard plastic resin against a soft and natural wood. I added a tiny clay mountain in there for good measure.

My most prominent love language is gift giving. Seriously, who doesn’t love getting presents? If I can make someone smile or make someone’s day by giving them a little meaningful trinket or a few of their favorite candy bars, I’m doing it.
That’s why this project is so awesome. It’s incredibly easy, useful, and all about meaningful personalization. Although the tools are a little spendy, once you have them, you never have to buy them again, and you can continue making these gifts for as long as you’d like.
