The reeds were really long for my container, so I cut them in half:
Then you just fill your container with a couple of inches of oil and put the reeds it. That's it! Now you have a reed diffuser that perfectly matches your decor and is filled with the scent of your choice!
The possibilities are endless! You can use any kind of water (or in this case oil!) tight container to do this. And for a few dollars, you can put a different one in every room of your house. It can be especially inexpensive if you use containers you already have. Plus, I only put 5 reeds cut in half in my container. That means I still have 5 short reeds and 5 long reeds left to use. I also have a lot of extra oil left to refill my container as needed.
I can't wait to make more of these for around the house. Plus, you could easily put together a bunch of these for gifts.
**Update: I was just at the Dollar General and even they have bottle of scented oil. All for $1 of course!***
