When making gifts for family and friends I always try and think of something that they would actually want and/or could use. Then I have to figure out if it is also something the girls can make so when I thought about these fun Christmas air fresheners for the cars, I knew it was the perfect DIY Christmas Gift.
The way I figure it, is pretty much everyone in the family has a car so they can all use one of these beauties. And my oldest had so much fun making them, she now can’t wait to give them to everyone. The hardest thing about making everyone a gift is holding on to them till Christmas, she wants to give them all away now.
As far as what sent you want to make these it is totally up to you. We did some with just a gardenia sent, which I know is not really a Christmas sent however it is very light and smells great in the car (yes I had to try one out and have it hanging in the car already). We are also doing some with a pine sent which is also a very light sent. Since these are going in cars I don’t want them to be too strong since they will be in a confined space.
Another thing to think about when picking a sent is if you use just regular scented oil you will need more oil than if you use essential oils. Essential oils are much stronger so a little goes a long way.
These would also make a great project for school, or a play-date group. And it will be a unique homemade gift that everyone will love.
