 $1.00 DIY  Decorative Diffuser

$1.00 DIY Reed Diffuser from cupcakesandcrinoline.com I love candles but good ones are expensive and with small children safety is an issue.  A nice, fragrant, decorative alternative to candles are diffusers but they can also be expensive.  I like to use what I have on hand recycling items that might otherwise be thrown away and this diffuser fits the bill.  I had been saving a small glass jelly jar that I liked because of it’s square shape but was not sure what to do with it it until now.

Materials needed:

glass container {jar, vase, glass, etc.}

bamboo skewers 

liquid potpourri

  • Decorate your jar as desired-I used seam binding tied in a bow, a small tag and a charm
  • Place a few drops of essential oil of your choice or liquid potpourri into your container-1/2 inch to an inch will do
  • Snip off the pointed end of the skewers
  • Place skewers into your container-flip the skewers every few days

That’s it! Easy and inexpensive.

Edited: A lot of people had questions about where to purchase the liquid potpourri – Casey was sweet enough to leave  her suggestions in the comment section  and I am also including her recommendations here for you!

Casey’s comment-for everyone who is looking for liquid potpourri, it is in most major stores (Wal-Mart, Target, etc.) in the candle/potpourri section. It comes in large plastic bottles and comes in many different fragrances. I have even seen it (and purchased mine) from the Dollar Tree. It is mostly used in the small fragrance burners, that have a tealight underneath and a cup for the fragrance above it. Hope this helps someone out there.

fragrant hugs, mb.

    What a great idea! I have some square jelly jars that I saved for something too and didn’t know what to do with them, so this is perfect. Thank you :)

    I love diffusers and never thought to make one…this is a wonderful idea! I love the house smelling pretty but am so nervous lighting candles with my little climber on the prowl all day. This is a great homemade alternative. Your jar is gorgeous! TFS
