Air Freshener Supplies
- Sticky Back Craft Foam Sheets
- Wood beads or any beads with larger hole (for heavier thread that feeds through twice)
- Craft String
- Essential Oil of choice (or even perfume)
Print the download and cut along all lines of the feathers, creating two pieces for each feather.
Use 2 different colors for each feather section.
Remove backing paper and apply foam to felt, piecing together the feathers.
Once feathers are placed, cut the felt around the edges of the feathers.
Measure 2 feet of string and cut.
Holding the back of the string in place, wrap around the stem of the feather 3 or 4 times and tie a knot on the back, or felt side, of the feather.
String the beads onto the thread using a large needle. The first bead will be at the base of the loop when completed, creating a slip-knot effect.
Once the beads are in place, thread the needle back through the first bead.
Remove the needle and follow the previous instructions to tie the other end of the thread to the remaining feather.
Cut small triangles out of each side of the feathers, roughly an inch apart.
Separate the two alike beads and move them down to either side of the center bead. Slide beads to adjust the size of the loop in order to hang over the rear view mirror. Apply 2 drops of essential oils to the felt side of the feathers and repeat as needed.
How long will the scents last for ?
