Recommended Posts

So I seen these air freshener blanks on bittercreek and they say you can  paint them using diluted food coloring or stamp them  then add your fragrance..seems fun..has anyone used these? And do them come out nice

I have used these....I used watercolor paints and it worked well.  I remember stamping them in the past...but the ink ran a bit after applying the fragrance oil. 

You may try stamping after adding the oil?  I recently ordered the football helmet blanks and painted them in team colors. Then I printed the team logo on a blank label, cut the shape of the logo and stuck it on the helmet blank.   It was pretty cool!  I did this for various teams for family members.

How do you get the oil to soak up? Is there a particular recipe that's used? I'm interested in learning how to make these since the beaded fresheners sell really well for me. Thank you!

Hi Belinda.   I just coat the blanks with oil...I use an artist type ( a good width) brush or foam brush.  I already have them strung, so I let them dry by hanging them up.   If not strung, I just lean them up on jar.  I usually give them a second coat of oil.   No recipe.   Just oil of your choice.  Too easy!

I do the same as Barbara. The fragrance doesn't last as long as aroma beads, but they are fun to play with!

I used to use these from Bell.  I loved them but just didn't have the space for them to dry.  I dipped them in a dish with fragrance and dpg and hung them to dry.  They do not last as long as the aroma beads.

It will if you leave them in too long. Only dip them long enough to absorb the fragrance on the whole freshener and pull it out.  I had a few customers that I would resoak them for.
