Upcycle containers

I seem to have so many containers…plastic, tin, glass..you know the norm..I always look at it and think, hmm I can use that for something…then hoard it till I can figure it out…

A friend of mine shared a post on Facebook showing how to make air fresheners..so that little light bulb went off again..

So I grabbed 2 tins and started painting them…oh I should say these were my dog’s food…

So after cleaning them well, peeling off the wrapper, I started painting…

While drying I remembered I had 2 baby food jars that were sitting on my coffee table with candles in them so I grabbed them as well…

Its so simple to make these…add baking soda then your favorite EO…I had tried lavender before but it didn’t have much of a smell to it so I decided to do vanilla bean and cinnamon..

Now for breathable lids…the vanilla I used a piece of burlap and tied with twine…

The cinnamon I used cheesecloth and twine…

They will last as long if not loner than store bought air fresheners AND you have the added benefit of no toxic chemicals in the air you breath…

As for the painted cans….still waiting on them to dry…i kinda like the glass jars better though…hahaha
