Fruit Puns Enamel Pins with Jewelry Resin DIY
Hi Resin Crafters, it’s Natalie from Doodlecraft sharing fruity pun enamel pins, perfect for every denim jacket or backpack. Enamel pins are all the rage and making some witty fruit pun pins is a piece of cake! Just a few supplies needed for these faux enamel pins. When I was in Elementary school, having pins all over your jacket or backpack was especially cool. Honestly, I don’t think that trend has ever gone out of style. My kids love enamel pins and buttons too–and they make great gifts!

Supplies Needed for DIY Enamel Pins:
- Jewelry Resin
- Ink Jet Shrink Film
- E6000 Glue
- Pin backs
- Embossing Heat Gun
- Mixing cups, stirring sticks, disposable gloves
Begin by printing out the fruity image on the shrink plastic. Unfortunately, my colored ink was nearly out, so the background did not print as vibrantly as desired. Next, use scissors to cut the images out. Use the yellow background as a guide.
Next, shrink the plastic. Use the embossing heat gun or place them on a baking sheet in the oven set to 350*F for 2-5 minutes. Watch the plastic curl up like a bowl, then flatten out. Let them cool completely.
Time for Resin:
Now place the fruit shapes on a piece of cardboard and mix up 1 teaspoon of jewelry resin according to the package directions. It’s super critical to follow the directions and mix for the full time in the 2 phase process.
Once the resin is coating the fruit enamel pins, let them sit overnight, undisturbed on a level surface. Check the resin after 20 minutes and pop any bubbles that have surfaced with the heat gun or a mini torch.
