Easy Croc Charms DIY!

If you haven’t seen already, Crocs are back in a big way, and we’ve got one of the easiest DIYs to customize your own Croc charms to adorn your set of shoes.

We are partnering with Sculpey on this post since their Liquid Sculpey is the perfect material for making charms (and so much more, like these Statement Hair Clips!).

I love fun, fast, easy DIYs that you can do at home, and Liquid Sculpey projects like this is one that older kids and tweens can get into as well!

Supplies:
Liquid Sculpey in your favorite colors
Sculpey mixing cup set (optional but super helpful!)
silicone mold in your favorite charm shapes
charm backings
-super glue (I like these gel control tip ones)
pair of cute Crocs!

First, you’ll want to lay out your silicone molds and decide which colors you want to go with which molds. Before pouring your Liquid Sculpey into the molds, you’ll want to stir the liquid in the bottle, or, if you are mixing colors, you can use the oven-safe silicone cup that comes with a dual-end stir stick.

The cup is super helpful since it’s clear so you can see the color you are mixing, it’s got a measuring scale on the cup for easy measurements, and a spout for easy-pouring. If you have any leftovers in the cup, either pop on the lid to save for another day or just bake it and peel it out for an easy way to clean the cup!

Using the stir stick is a great way to add glitter and sparkle to your creations, as the scoop end allows you to add glitter and mica to your cup with no mess (and you can use the pointed end to pop any bubbles that appear!).

Once your colors are stirred, pour or squeeze the color into the molds doing either all one color, sections of color for a color-blocked look, or pour more than one color and marble with a toothpick.

Bake your molds at 275° for 15 minutes per every 1/4″ of Liquid Sculpey (so 15 minutes for 1/4″ thick and 30 minutes for 1/2″ thick). Allow the molds to cool and then pop out your charms!

Once the charms are totally cool, use the super glue to glue them to the charm backings and allow the glue to set.

Once the glue is dry, you are ready to decorate with your Croc charms!

So much cuter with charms!! And if you like this idea but aren’t a fan of the more classic style Crocs, you can get these sandal slides which are perfect for the beach or the pool.

Making these Croc charms with Liquid Sculpey was so fast, fun, and easy, and I love how you can customize all the colors to your liking and add glitter and mica for an extra shine (my daughter thought the glow-in-the-dark color was so cool, too).

You could also use this method to make custom pins with backings like these or necklace charms. The possibilities are endless!

I know Crocs can be very polarizing as well (you either love them or hate them!), so let us know in the comments if you are team Crocs and what kinds of charms you would love to make for your pairs! xo. Laura
