Enter something New

To some you see a diffuser, to me, a blank canvas. So, with a few pieces of paper, a bit of glue, a button and a little time and I still have a diffuser! No miracle here, just a little creative fun.


I love burning candles, who doesn't? For as long as I can remember (20 years or so) on Christmas morning I received a basket full of candles. They would come in all shapes, scents and sizes. Three years ago, enter something new. A diffuser was in the basket. When I took the new diffuser out of the box the other night I noticed it could use.............paper!

I do like using pages from old books in a lot of things I do. They make great backgrounds.


Note to self, when in doubt use a heart with a button for a little something extra!

Ilove what you did with the bottle.Just think if they sold it that way they would sell more and it would be twice the price.I guess a man is incharge of marketingthem.

I LOVE your idea of decorating the diffuser...it look so much prettier!

p.s. I made the chocoate covered clementines and they were to die for...oh my, they were delicious...my dd loved them, too! Thanks for the idea.

Yes, Lorraine I am rushing out to get chips and cookies, I mean bread and milk as soon as I finish typing. I like when the snow storms come on the weekend, I see a little crafting in my future.
Kim, we are going out to a friend's for dinner tonight. If I can find clementines, I will be bringing them for a dessert option.

How clever you are! I would have never thought of altering up my diffuser bottles! Gotta run...scissors in hand!

Thanks!

I love the bottle, and heart book mark, but the mittens are my favorite. Girl, you must open an etsy, you do such wonderful work. Hugs RoseMarie

I received my first diffuser for Christmas this year. My bath and bed room smell yummy all the time. Love your improvements to the packaging!
