Make Your Own Reed Diffusers

Blue-Bottles

I tend to save things. My minimalist kids would say I save too many things. I like to think of it as being practical. I might need them for a project someday. A bunch of cute little blue bottles somehow accumulated in a box under the sink over the past few years.

Last week, I needed those cute little blue bottles for a project I did with our lady’s church group. We covered the bottles with clay. The ladies had a great time playing and creating with the polymer clay to make bottles for aromatherapy reed diffusers for their home. I even had enough bottles (with lids) to send each lady home with an additional bottle filled with fragrance oil.

The project fit perfectly with our devotion for the evening based on 2 Corinthians 2:15:

Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God.

Before our gathering, I decorated three bottles to help give the ladies ideas. I’ve never baked clay on glass before, but was assured by researching online it would work very well. I baked the bottles according to the clay packaging instructions just like other things I have created with clay. Using Premo! Sculpey® I baked at 275° for 30 minutes for 1/4″ clay thickness.

Some of the ladies had previously worked with clay and some had not, but I think they are all eager to try more clay explorations.
