How To Make A Spice Scented Christmas Ornament

Step 1

We rinsed out our ornament as it had gotten dusty over the summer, nailed extra air holes into the metal lid for the ornament top.  Make as many holes as possible, you want to let the scents escape.

Step 2

Carefully pour the oil into the ornament, add the drops of oil and the spices.  

Step 3

Put the lid back on and hang on the tree.

Step 4

When the scent runs out, add another round of essential oil drops.
