Here’s an easy craft project to freshen your bathroom or closet – decorate a round air freshener with flowers and lace. Inexpensive and quick to do, this project would also make a nice little shower game prize, easy homemade gift, or bazaar craft.

round air freshener in a plastic casing
small piece of pre-gathered lace trim
silk carnation or similar silk flower
baby’s breath or similar small floral decorations
narrow ribbon to make a bow
glue gun and glue sticks
1. If the air freshener has a clear plastic wrapping, remove the wrapper. Heat up the glue gun and glue the pregathered lace trim around the top of the air freshener, so that the edge of the lace is lined up around the edge of the air freshener. Apply glue only to the top of the lace, which will be hidden by the flower.
2. Center the carnation on top of the lace and glue in place.
3. Glue one or two sprigs of baby’s breath, or other small silk flowers, under one section of the carnation.
4. Make a bow from thin ribbon, and glue the bow just underneath the baby’s breath.
