Holiday Rosemary Wreath Craft
This Holiday Rosemary Wreath Craft is something that can be done in a matter of minutes. It can be done with small hands (by the help of mom) or as a DIY Christmas gift creating a creative way to make your house smell good this Christmas season.
How to Make Your House Smell Good
When our house was on the market in Florida, I got accused of having too many plugins in my home. I was told that it looked liked it masked a foul scent in the home (though that was not true.) I just love a scented home. In fact, scents take me to times and palces all the time, so I gravitate toward them for the rush of a deja vu moment.
There are many ways to make your house smell good. You can spent money on plug-ins, like I did when my house was on the market or you can adapt some of these Fresh smelling home tips.
First, a Holiday Simmer Pot. We shared this one with you last week. It’s great for when you are hosting and want the home to have an inviting smell.
Of course, There are also Essential Oils. You can add a drop of essential oils to already existing potpourri, pine cones, or other absorbent items in your home or you can use an Essential Oil Diffuser and let the scent float into the air while it warms.
Of course, you can Hang fresh herbs. Herbal wreaths give a pleasant aroma. We our Holiday Rosemary Wreath Craft. We shaped Popsicle sticks into a star/snowflake and hung using a beautiful buffalo check ribbon. Supplies and directions listed below.
