DIY Room Fragrance!
This is one of the coolest do it yourself projects that I’ve done in a while. This idea actually came from my better half after he discovered my water beads.Â He told me about something similar that he saw that held fragrance. Now, I love room fragrance but have a hard time finding one’s I actually like.Â So, I decided, why not make my own?! You’re going to love this one, guys. Ready? Here we go…
Here’s what you’re going to need:
Liquid fragrance of your choice (I got mine for $3.00 at Walmart)
Cheesecloth or any loose weave material
Twine or string
The first thing you need to do is decide which fragrance you want to work with. I found the one in the picture first and it smelled pretty good. Then, I went to the Dollar Tree and to my surprise, found a HUGE container of liquid fragrance (by the potpourri) that smelled even better! Anyway, once you have your fragrance, pour a bit of it into a mason jar.
Once I had the jar about a third full, I added my water beads.
I let the beads sit in the fragrance for a while so that each bead soaked up some of it.Â After about 30 minutes, I added enough water to fill my mason jar. My measurements ended up being 3 to 1. However, you may use more of one than the other depending on the strength of the fragrance you’re looking for.
Once your beads are full and are releasing the amount of fragrance you desire, you can cut a piece of cheesecloth to cover the top of the mason jar with. Once covered, use twine or any other string to tie the cloth in place.
There you have it! You’ve just made your own room fragrance!
I took it a step further put some of the beads in an old Icebreakers mint tin, covered the large opening with cheesecloth, and used it as a car fragrance! Once your beads begin to dry out, you can simply add more fragrance and more water and you’re set to go again! Isn’t that fun?!
