The Scent of Christmas


Happy Tuesday!  I'm back today to share with you a Christmas DIY project that I just finished.  It took about 10 minutes to complete and now my home is filled with the most beautiful fragrance for Christmas.

All you need to create this pretty diffuser are the following items:

  • Diffuser reeds
  • Fragrance oil
  • Amber glass bottle
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Ribbon, lace or seam binding
  • Stamp and ink
  • Tag or embellishments

Once I decided on the scrapbook paper I wanted to use, I cut the piece of paper to fit around the middle of my glass bottle overlapping the ends slightly so I could glue them together.  I then wrapped a piece of vintage seam binding and tied a bow.  This particular paper is called 'Gilded Christmas'.  I just love the champagne color with gold snowflakes!

On a piece of Naturals Ivory paper I stamped Merry Christmas in StazOn Timber Brown and cut it out to make a tag.  A small grommet was added to the hole to finish it off.  It was tied around the bottle with gold cording.

I added Christmas Memories fragrance oil to the bottle then placed several diffuser sticks next to the container to see if they were the correct height.  I find it is easier to cut them first before placing them in the bottle with the oil.  I have to say this Christmas scent is heavenly.  A wonderful Christmas pine combined with apple cider, cinnamon sticks, orange peels and clover.

The sticks will begin to diffuse immediately, but it may take several hours before you begin to smell the aroma.  After a few days flip the reed sticks to refresh the scent.

Thank you for visiting me and I hope you are enjoying the holiday season.
