DIY Home Decor | Fragrance Diffuser

Creating your own home scents is easier than you may think and make great gifts.
| WHAT YOU NEED |
Almond Oil / Fragrance / Containers / Reeds / Nail Varnish
| HOW TO MAKE IT |
For the container, you need something sturdy, flat bottomed and with a narrow opening. It was not as easy as I hoped to find something like this as a single item. A narrow opening will keep all your lovely fragrance contained and hold your reeds in place.
Nearly giving up, I used something cheap and to hand - spare travel containers. I have a few diffusers that have beautiful large, square containers, but they take up a lot of room and I was on the look-out for something smaller and slim-line.
The plastic container also meant I could decorate it with my favourite quick decoration method - nail polish brush strokes. I chose a gold colour and made light strokes of the nail polish around the base in various directions to add a little detail:
The Base and Fragrance:
You can make your own scents with the choice of two bases. Vodka [no, no, no - I'm drinking that] or Almond Oil. The only difference this made to me was that the colour of the vodka base would be clear and the almond oil yellow - so something you may want to consider if you have chosen a clear container.
Create a combination of someones favourite scents and you have a great gift too!
