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.

Ever wanted to make your own diffuser jewellery but just didn’t know how to go about it? Well here is an easy peasy IKEA hack for making a beautiful pendant out of air hardening clay.
Gather Your Supplies
Materials from IKEA
SAMVERKA Plant pot
DRÖMMAR 14-piece pastry cutter set in box, light blue
SODA Drinking straw
- Air Hardening Clay
- Black Craft Necklace
- Rolling Pin & Plastic Cutting Board
- A cup of water
- Paper Towel
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!
