This is an extremely easy gift to make-- it would be great for Holidays, teacher gifts, or house-warming gifts!  Not only do they neutralize stinky odors, but they fill the room with wonderful fragrance and look adorable!  You can choose your own look to fit your decor and your own scent to fit your preferences!

I've got one in my bathroom, kitchen, and it's perfect next to the diaper pail!

Pin It

You will need:

glass jars

fabric

ribbon

baking soda

scented oil

Add a few drops of the scented oil to the baking soda.  This is not an exact science but about 8-12 drops of oil per half cup of baking soda should be about right.

Mix it together and put it in the jar.

Cut a circle out of the fabric (I traced a bowl onto the fabric to get the circle).

Then use the ribbon to tie the fabric onto the top of the jar.  That's it!  Now you have a new super cute air freshener that looks and smells great!

    You are so crafty! I have made these before only never thought of using baking soda! Great idea!

  2. These are a great idea, I will be making some!

  3. The baking soda doesn’t soak up the scented old smell, too? What a great idea.

  4. Great idea, I think I just may make some of these! I love using “natural” things, and avoid chemicals

  5. These are great! You are a genius!

  6. GREAT idea!!! Simple and I love how it can be customized for ANY kind of decor! I can’t wait to try it! :D

  7. So cute! I’d love for you to add it on my link party at: http://printabelle.com/?p=3188 Thanks!

  8. Thank you for sharing this at my party, you were one of the top views last week and will be featured tonight!

    Thanks for the gift idea.

  11. Could you use an extract instead of scented oil?

    • I haven’t tried that but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. It might not keep the scent as long as the scented oil. Let me know how it goes if you try it!

    How long would a small jar last?

  13. How often do you need to replace it?

  14. Hello, I will be using this in a blog post “May Pinterest Round Up” . It will be posted Friday (and of course I will back link and give you full credit!) Hope you’ll stop by and check out my rave about you.

    LOVE this idea!! Will be making these very soon! x

  16. i use a mixture like this to sprinkle on my carpets before vacuuming ~ like carpet freshener

  17. I made this and they turned out super cute, however I can’t really smell them that well (unless your nose is over the container). Any suggestions on how to get the oil to smell more? What brand did you use and where did you find it?

    • The kind of oil I used recently is from Hobby Lobby. I don’t still have the box and the bottle doesn’t have a label so I can’t tell you the brand or scent but it smells good!

  18. So clever and easy!

  20. I will sure try it!!! Thank you!
