- Fabric squares or handkerchiefs (6×6 inches or preferred size)
- Dried lavender buds or Rice grains
- lavender scented oil
- Funnel or spoon for filling
- Ribbons or elastic bands (for decoration)
- Fabric glue or fabric adhesive dots
Step 1: Gather the Materials
Start by preparing two fabric squares of the same size, ideally 6×6 inches. Choose soft and breathable fabrics that will hold the scent well. You’ll also need fabric glue or adhesive dots and decorative ribbons for later.
Step 2: Glue the Edges
Apply fabric glue or adhesive dots to three sides of one fabric square, leaving the top side open. This will create a pouch to hold the dried lavender buds or rice grains.
Step 3: Fill and Scent the Sachet
Once the glue has dried, carefully fill the pouch with dried lavender buds or rice grains. If you desire a stronger fragrance, add a few drops of lavender scented oil directly into the pouch. Gently squeeze the sachet to mix and evenly spread the scented oil.
Step 4: Seal and Decorate
After adding the lavender or rice and scented oil, seal the open top of the pouch with fabric glue, ensuring the contents are securely enclosed. Get creative and add a personal touch by using decorative ribbons to embellish your lavender scent sachet. Tie a bow or create your unique design to make the sachet even more charming.
