The arrival of Fall means it's time for some of my most favorite things; fuzzy slippers, apple cider and anything cinnamon scented! This adorable DIY felt air freshener was inspired by the scents of Fall and let's me take that yummy cinnamon scent wherever I go.
This project is super simple and was made with scraps and leftovers found in the kids' craft box. (Please don't mind the kitty hair. At some point she used the box as a bed and I never noticed.) In fact it was the kids that helped make these. They are a little crooked and uneven, but all the more lovely because we made them together as a family.
Small scrap of black felt
Small scrap of white felt
Small scrap of yellow, gold or orange felt
Embroidery thread and sewing needle
Fabric glue such as Tacky Glue
Owl Template (Download below)
Step 1: Print out the template and cut the shapes. Trace onto the felt and cut.
Step 2: Glue eyes and nose onto 1 owl piece. This will be your top layer.
Step 3: Once your top layer looks nice, line it up with the bottom layer and stitch around the edge, leaving an opening to fill it. You can use a basic stitch, backstitch or a blanket stitch. I found it easiest to go from ear to ear around the bottom
Step 4: Fill owl with cinnamon sticks and cloves. If you have trouble fitting them in, you can crush them for an easier fit.
Step 5: Continue stitching around top, stopping halfway between the ears. Make a loop in the thread as big as you would like. Tie a know in the thread near stitching. this will be your hanging loop. Continue stitching until you reach your first stitch.
Step 6: Hang, and enjoy the sweet scent of cinnamon and cloves! You can also fill with other herbs and spices. Lavender is nice, as well as dried lemon verbena.
