Butterfly art using DIY paint, scrap wood and IOD products.

Updated: May 11, 2020

love pretty things and I like taking the ordinary and making it "extra"ordinary. That's what I hope to convey through my blog. I'll take ordinary things, or discarded items, and give them new life.

That was the premise behind Sweet and Sassy Treasures. Sometimes what I make has a romantic or vintage flare, and sometimes it is brighter and edgier (or sassy), but whatever direction I take, I hope I inspire you to create! Thank you for joining me on this journey.

If you're like me and have a ton of scrap wood laying around then you are constantly looking for ways to turn that scrap wood into art. You, too, can create unique artwork in a little over an hour! Here's a list of materials that you'll need to complete this project:


  • scrap wood: I used 1/2" sanded plywood 12" by 14"

  • DIY paint in Tarnished Pearl and Prairie Grey

  • IOD Mould Trimmings 2

  • IOD Air Dry Clay

You can see how I did this, step by step, by watching this video:

I hope you enjoyed this project!
