DIY Sachet Bags

This is a simple and easy way to make a Sachet for your closet, or anywhere else that needs a boost of nice scent.Organza bagsI started with an Organza bag.  These can be purchased at a craft or dollar store: often two or three in a package and in different sizes .  The one I used is 9.5 x 5.5 inches.

A package of dried petals or an old potpourri you have lying around works perfectly for the filler.  I love the look of potpourri but find it loses it scent rapidly so ends up getting tossed out or tucked away somewhere “safe” until you forgot what you were keeping it for.PotpourriPotpourri can also be made from all those beautiful roses your sweetheart buys you.  When they have lost their freshness, hang them upside down until they are thoroughly dry.  Carefully take the petals and leaves off and separate them.  Add in some small dry seed pods or cones to fill it out.

Take approximately 1 cup of your potpourri and fill the organza bag.  Next add in a small amount of Downy Unstoppables, very small amount as these are highly scented.  Pull the ties tight on the bag and hang in your closet.  These will last for many weeks maybe even many months.  When the scent gets low, throw in a few more Downy Unstoppables.  SachetWhere would you hang your Sachet Bag?
