Easy DIY Essential Oil Diffuser Necklace @oilyfamilies @hobbylobbystores

I made my first essential oil diffuser necklace today! So easy and inexpensive too (mine was less than $10.)

Style and wellness in one – perfect.

DIY Essential Oil Diffuser Necklace @getSNAZZY @OilyFamilies @HobbyLobbyStore

Pieces to buy to make your own DIY Diffuser Necklace:

1. Diffuser Pendant (on the jewelry aisle – they were on the bottom row at our store)

2. Necklace Chain

3. Felt (add 1-3 drops of essential oil and put in the pendant)

4. Jump Rings (1 or 2 to attach the pendant and charms to the chain)

5. Optional – extra charm – I added a key charm to mine

6. Tiny pliers or jewelry tool to tighten the jump ring

7. Young Living Essential Oil (1-3 drops lasts a day)

Directions:

It was super easy, just pick where on the chain you want to add your pendant. Loosen a jump ring and thread it through so it attaches to the chain and pendant. Tighten with the jewelry pliers. Add a charm if you want by attaching with another jump ring (I used the 9mm size, smaller would be ok too)

Cut a piece of felt so it is small enough to fit in the diffuser locket. Then add 1-3 drops of Young Living Essential Oil to the felt pad. Close the pendant and you are all set!

Now you are ready to wear your stylish and helpful diffuser necklace! (I put peppermint oil in mine – perfect for our road trip – it helps with headaches and motion sickness so I can read in the car!)  I packed a few extra felt pads so I can switch to other oils. JOY and is another one of my favorites!

** Most of the supplies were 50% off at Hobby Lobby this week! You can also use a Hobby Lobby 40% coupon on one regular priced item, just bring it up on your phone. I was not paid by Hobby Lobby to write this post – although that would be awesome, because I often want to buy the whole store!

Felt Paper Dolls – Quiet Activity for Kids

Felt “Paper” Dolls are a great DIY quiet activity for toddlers and older kids. I made these as Christmas gifts last year. Felt dolls are fun like paper dolls but a lot sturdier! I made a boy and a girl version.

Felt Paper Dolls - EASY DIY Quiet Activity for Kids {Free Printable} getSNAZZY.com

 

Supplies – Felt (different colors/patterns), scissors, pattern, freezer paper & iron (optional), small box or bag to store final project.

1. Download & Print Pattern for Doll & Clothes
Free Printable Pattern – download PDF here.
2. Trace Pattern & Cut Out Shapes
Freezer Paper Trick: Trace your pattern onto freezer paper and iron it shiny side down onto your felt. Then cut out both layers (pattern & felt) at the same time. Peel off the freezer paper and you have a perfectly shaped felt piece! TIP: Use SHARP fabric scissors. If you don’t have freezer paper just use regular paper and pin the pattern onto the felt and cut out the shape.
3. Create & Decorate
Felt sticks to felt, so the clothes will stick to the doll. I glued a few extra decorations to personalize the shirts (for example I added a butterfly to the pink shirt, a dinosaur for the boy, etc.)
4. Display / Store
I put the finished project in a snap lid box with a picture book of some of the outfit possibilities. I took pictures of outfits and put them in a small photo album, looks like a mini clothing catalog. Be creative! Other Display ideas – Use a Picture Frame – take the glass out and replace with a piece of felt or use an easel to create a display board. You can also just include a rectangle piece of felt that’s slightly bigger than the doll. The table works fine too, you don’t need a special display. Be creative and enjoy!

Great DIY gift idea for 2.5 years old and up.

Other ideas- make a “costume” box to dress up your felt doll for holidays. Create scenes out of felt – we built a house and learned about basic shapes too. We made a snowman and Christmas tree out of felt too.

Downloads are free, but I’d love if you would leave a comment! What are your favorite quiet time activities? Are you making any gifts this Christmas?  What do you make out of felt? Follow me on Pinterest too!

Snowman that won’t melt – FELT :)

Remember our 79 cent Christmas tree?

I bought some extra felt and made a snowman for our little girl!  She LOVES it. She can decorate him over and over again however she wants. The felt sticks to felt so it isn’t a messy project. Stay tuned for more felt projects :) Do you have any favorites?

I found this great “how to” on PinterestThis site has templates and quick instructions too!  I customized our snowman a bit :)
