Hi!  Welcome to my blog.  I’m Sara Levin the artful inker.  And yes, you read that right!  It is the Home Decor SU Style Blog Hop August 2018.  Due to circumstances, I had to reschedule our August hop.  So this month, you will see us twice!!

Home Decor SU Style Blog Hop August 2018

 

Home Decor SU Style Blog Hop Pop of Petals aromatherapy diffuser from theartfulinker.com

 

So, I have this collection of Oui yogurt jars.

They’re a great size and sturdy and I’m determined to create with them.

For today’s hop, I used one of these jars to create an aromatherapy diffuser.

For the reeds in my fragrance diffuser, I used bamboo skewers that I

trimmed to various lengths.

Then, I used the Pop of Petals stamp set to create my flower toppers in Mint Macaron.

After stamping two for each stick, I punched them with the Four Petal Flower punch.

To adhere the flowers, I chose to use Mini Glue Dots.

I only want these to be semi-permanent so that I can change the design seasonally.

When I set up my Pop of Petals flower, I made sure that

the curved petal was on the bottom right.

That way when I stamped, it was in the right place to line up with the punch.

Next, I moved on to decorating my jar.

First, I cut a 2″ Circle Punch of Mint Macaron and added holes for my diffuser reeds.

After attaching it to the rim of the jar with Mini Glue Dots, I wrapped the jar with

a strip of Share What You Love Specialty Designer Paper.

To finish the upcycle, I used 1/2″ Lace Trim and Gold Mini Sequin Trim.

Using the new Take Your Pick tool was the perfect “extra hand” for tucking the sequin trim.

 

Thanks for stopping in today to see my Pop of Petals aromatherapy diffuser!

    Oh Sara, What a truly lovely project and I love how you can change up the flowers seasonally too. Fab idea. Thanks for sharing x

    • Sara Levin September 3, 2018 at 6:54 pm

      Thanks Mikaela! I was thinking it would be fun to change the reed toppers to reflect the season or scent.

  • Mette September 3, 2018 at 4:42 pm

    Very cute idea, always nice when you can upcycle packaging 😊

    Love this idea. Lovely way to reuse jars.

    • Sara Levin September 3, 2018 at 6:52 pm

      Thank you Cheryl! Maybe I should play with a aromatherapy “mojo mix”.

  • Renee Ondrajka September 3, 2018 at 3:43 pm

    Love this idea. I love that yogurt and have been collecting for sometime.

    • Sara Levin September 3, 2018 at 6:51 pm

      Thanks Renee! I knew there had to be other “collectors” out there.

  • Sandra Roberts September 3, 2018 at 2:25 pm

    Fabulous idea. Love anything recycling and making something new from old !
