Christmas Air Fresheners

Since the girls are making gifts for everyone this year, I have been trying to figure out what they can make that people will not only want but can use.  That is when I thought about these fun Christmas air fresheners for the cars.

The way I figure it, is pretty much everyone in the family has a car so they can all use one of these beauties.  And my oldest had so much fun making them, she now can’t wait to give them to everyone.  The hardest thing about making everyone a gift is holding on to them till Christmas, she wants to give them all away now.

As far as what scent you want to make these, it is totally up to you.  We did some with just a gardenia sent, which I know is not really a Christmas sent however it is very light and smells great in the car (yes I had to try one out and have it hanging in the car already).  We are also doing some with a pine sent which is also a very light sent.  Since these are going in cars, I don’t want them to be too strong since they will be in a confined space.

Another thing to think about when picking a sent is if you use just regular scented oil you will need more oil than if you use essential oils.  Essential oils are much stronger so a little goes a long way.

These would also make a great project for school, or a play-date group.  And it will be a unique homemade gift that everyone will love.



Cut Template

Cut out your template.


Trace your templates onto your firm felt paper and then cut them all out.


Using your glue gun glue the center of the flower onto the flower and the hat onto the snowman.

Punch Hole

Punch a hole on the top of each air freshener.


Put your ribbon through the hole and tie off (try and make sure they are long enough to fit over the rear view mirror in a car)

Scented Oil

Using your eye dropper put some scented oil on the back of each one.

About Tracey

I am a work at home mother of two living just outside Kansas City, KS. I started crafting with my oldest daughter to spend more time with her and to get her to focus more. And I have to say it has been a great experience for us both. As a matter of fact I have created a craft monster since she tells me several times a week “Let’s do a project MOM!” My youngest is finally at an age where we can start crafting with her too, but then comes the challenge of coming up with something a toddler can do that a preschooler will enjoy also… oh the challenges of a crafting mom. I hope to inspire other parents to craft and create things with their kids.
