Sweet Sa­chets

Country Sampler - - Thrifty Thinking -

Keep kids busy dur­ing Christ­mas break with an easy DIY project. Ask them to help you put to­gether scented sa­chets that look like col­or­ful con­fec­tions by rolling dried bal­sam nee­dles and spices into bun­dles made from scraps of a vin­tage check­ered shirt. Sim­ply cut the scraps into your de­sired shapes and sizes us­ing pink­ing shears. Fill with the ev­er­green mix­ture and roll into a ball or cylin­der. Cinch at each end with a length of twine or rib­bon. Place in a drawer, tuck into a bed pil­low, or stock a bas­ket with as­sorted fab­ric bon­bons to add hol­i­day fra­grance to any room in the house.
