Spring Decorating with IOD Decor

Are you ready for some spring decor? Did you know spring officially starts on March 19th in 2020. I know I am ready for some spring Decorating with IOD Decor! Birds singing flowers blooming (Well not in Vermont yet!) but we can hope.

Spring decorating with IOD Decor

We had this old Faux fireplace in the studio which I wanted to keep for photo shoots. My husband wanted to throw it away or sell it but as you can see, he compromised. Isn’t it perfect for my spring decorating with IOD Decor?

The Bird House

Not many things say spring more than birds singing and building nests in birdhouses. This birdhouse is going to be a class next month but I wanted to share it early. The birdhouse is unfinished wood. NATURAL WOOD BIRDHOUSES are easy to find at craft stores. The birds are made from our BIRDSONG MOULD and the clay is our AIR-DRY CLAY. The tiled roof is a casting from our Classic Elements Mould.

I found a glue that I love for my clay castings. It is a tacky glue that dries clear and has worked perfectly on all my projects for the last 6 months. We now carry it here in the shop.

Making the IOD Moulds Birdhouse

First thing I did was make the castings with IOD Air Dry Clay and then glued them to the unfinished birdhouse. I let the birdhouse dry overnight and then painted it. I layered Folkart Decor chalk paint in gray and white. When the paint was dry, I sealed the project with clear wax and then antique wax to finish the vintage look. Good for all seasons! Need more detailed instructions on how to use our moulds check out Everything IOD Moulds.
