DIY Felt Car Air Fresheners

I love keeping an air freshener in my car, especially when they’re in fun shapes and scents!  I don’t have a problem with those tiny little scented trees, but I do believe your car should reflect your personality (and not just your driving skills)!  So I decided to make a few of my own car air fresheners out of felt and essential oil.  I free-handed the shapes I wanted on felt, cut them out, added some string in a loop, and glued my pieces together.

These air fresheners would make great gifts for back-to-school kids to hang in their lockers.  Just package them in a cellophane bag with a cute label and gift!  They’re also good for around the house or in the office.  I like them because they’re cheaper to make than buying a pack of air fresheners in the store and eco-friendly because you can keep refreshing them with oil!  Just make sure to add the oil right before hanging!
