Quick and "Easy Peasy" Air Fresheners

This is a quick and easy craft......

can make several in one evening!

You will need ground corn cob from the pet supplies department.

I purchased mine at Wal-Mart and it was $2.79.  I think it had gone up some, the last time I checked,  but we make several Air Fresheners and I average buying one bag a year.

Pour some out in a bowl....depending how many you want to make.

Add fragrance.  I use my candle fragrances, but you can use essential oils or fragrant scents from the craft department of any store.
(It doesn't take a lot!)
Blend fragrance through the ground corncob.  Then cover and let stand for a couple of hours.

Then bag corncob into organdy bags.  
The bags in the picture came from the Dollar Store and were 2 for $1.00.  Dollar Tree has some a bit smaller and they are 4 for a $1.00.

Tada!!!!  You're finished!

Total cost per bag is less than $1.00, if you are making several.

For a number of years, we set up at the Annual Health and Wellness Conference held in Edmond, OK.  We sold our candle line.  The two youngest boys (9 and 10 at the time) along with the two oldest grands (who were 7 and 8 y/o) decided they wanted to make something to sell.

We sold the small version for $3.00 each and we sold completely out before noon.

I had one in our older van (I use for hauling hay and feed in) and it kept that old van smelling wonderful for nearly two years.  We just pitched the air freshener under the front seat.  It was coconut-lime verbena...LOVE IT!

One of my friends pins her's behind her living room drapes.

Have fun and be blessed!
