Another simple/quick/affordable crafty gift idea I'm happy to share with all of you!

You'll need:

-wooden clothespins (the old-fashioned kind used to make those stupid clothespin dolls, haha. Any craft supply store stocks them)
-scented oil or essential oil of your choice
-packaging (cello bag, ribbon)
-optional: dried herbs/potpourri of your choice (that corresponds to the scents you use) I like to use lavender for this project.

1.Lay the clothespins on a covered surface.
2.Spray/drip scented oil on the pins.
3.Let dry.
4.Turn pins over, repeat Step #2 and #3.
5.Depending on how strong smelling you want the pins to be, repeat steps #2-#4 a few times.
6.Package up into cello baggie and secure with ribbon.
7.If you have any corresponding  dried herbs/potpourri, put a small amount  into the bags as well. (It looks nice and of course ads to the scent.)

How to use:
Simply tuck a scented clothespin wherever: in drawers, linen closets, jacket pockets, purses, etc.

Once the clothes pins are completely dry they should be fine.
