2. A SHABBY CHIC CANDLE HOLDER FROM A CAN AND SOME SCRAP WOOD


Yes, you read that correctly, a can, as in the can of peas you have in your cupboard!


Up-cycling items that typically end up in the landfill is both easy and sustainable at the same time! Also, the end result is a gorgeous candle holder. So you can feel fabulous about helping the Earth while creating a beautiful treasure!

4. DIY TRINKET TRAYS USING IOD MOULDS AND TRANSFERS

What? No scraps? I've got you covered! You can purchase new IOD Transfers sheets here and use them on a multitude of projects.

5. BEAUTIFUL EASY DIY PORCELAIN RELIC PENDANTS


These pendants created by IOD are too cute to pass up! Any momma would be proud to showcase these gems!


To make these cuties, you will need the IOD Knob Toppers stamp. This stamp has been retired, so hurry and get yours before it's gone, gone, gone! 😀


As an added tip, you will need to use polymer clay instead of air-dry clay to maintain the integrity of the pendant.
