Last Christmas I shared five homemade gifts you could make with items from IKEA and that post was a huge hit.

While that post was based around ideas for making your own Christmas gifts, I realized that these cute little terracotta diffuser pendants are suitable for giving all year around so I decided to give them their very own blog post.

Roll out your clay on a non-porous surface (like a plastic cutting board), then roll a SAMVERKA plant pot across it to emboss the clay with its pretty design.

Then use a DRÖMMAR pastry cutter set to cut out small embossed shapes. Remove the excess clay then smooth the edges of your clay shapes with a finger dipped in water.

Finally, punch out a hole in the shape with a SODA drinking straw and put the shapes aside to dry on a paper towel (refer to the instructions for your air hardening clay to determine drying time).

Once dry, thread a craft necklace through your clay pendant, add some essential oils and fasten your necklace around your neck – so easy!
