This felt car essential Oil diffuser works great!! It was so simple to put together! I tested it out and the aroma is so refreshing in the car! This is what they call a passive diffuser. Felt holds the scent of essential oil really well and can be smelled when you get into and while in the car.
To make the diffuser I used waxed thread and three felt balls. I folded the thread in half and made a knot to make a loop to go over the rear view mirror. Then I used a needle to thread the felt balls and made a knot to secure them.
I love how it turned out! To use it I just put 2-3 drops of the essential oil on one of the felt balls. Whenever the scent fades just add a couple more drops. I used Bergamot essential oil on my diffuser because of its calming and soothing scent.
I hope you give this a try! Comment below with your favorite diffusers!
Cork Board, I got mine from Hobby Lobby and it is 15 inches x 36 inches
White Felt 1 yard
Charcoal Grey Felt 14 inches by 42 inches
Felt Balls, I got mine from Amazon and Michael’s
Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
Burlap ribbon for hanger
Electric Staple Gun
This is a simple makeover but adds a lot of color and dimension to your cork board!! Below is a picture of what the cork board looked like before I recovered it with felt. You can use any color felt you want! I decided to go with the white and charcoal grey.
Below you can see the different layers of felt and ribbon that I added. I first stapled the white felt over the whole cork board. No one is going to see the back so I didn’t cover it, but you could take a 15×36 inch piece of felt and cover the whole back so no one can see the staples and excess material.
Once I stapled the white felt, I glued the first row of felt balls on the top and bottom. To secure the felt balls I put a small line of hot glue on the white felt and then added two or three felt balls at a time. I did this all the way to the end. If the felt balls were loss I add some additional glue in between the balls. After I had hot glued one row of balls on the top and bottom, I then added the piece of charcoal felt in the middle. I did this by wrapping it around the middle of the cork board and stapling the excess on the back.
After the charcoal felt is secured I then added a second row of felt balls to the top and bottom of the cork board!
I then stapled the burlap hanger on the back. I stapled each end of the hanger five inches from the middle of the cork board.
I hope you give this a try!! It was so fun and I love the way the felt balls look on the cork board!! Comment below with your favorite cork board makeover!
Two candle bowls (One small then the other), one candle cylinder and plate for hat
Black spray paint for hat
Decorations for scarf and hat, I used felt and winter floral stems
I have been seeing these glass snowmen on Facebook and Pinterest and wanted to give it a try. I decided to use candle bowls because it was really cheap at Hobby Lobby because they were all 50% off.
I spray painted the cylinder black for the top hat.
I put a thin line of E6000 glue on the rim of the cylinder and put it in the center of the bottom of the plate.
Then I put stuffing, glitter, and sequins in the bowls for decoration. The smaller bowl I glued on top of the slightly bigger bowl. I put a thin line of E6000 glue on the rim of the bottom bowl and placed the smaller bowl on top. Let sit for approximately 10 minutes.
Put a thin line of E6000 glue on the rim of the top bowl and place the glass top hat on it. Let the glue dry.
For decoration I made a scarf with felt and hot glued some winter floral stems on the top hat!
Hope you give this a try! Comment below with pictures of your glass creation!
