Tartan Pine Needle Sachets


Want to keep the fersh scent of Christmas trees with you all year long? Of course you do. Make fresh pine needle sachets for your drawers.I Used the fresh needles that dropped from my garland and some scraps of tartan that I've been saving.

These are a great gift idea too.

    How long does the scent last? Does it dissipate over time?

    Yes, and I wonder if orange or clementine peels could be added with the pine needles and cloves... hmmmmmmmmmm :-)

      Cloves, nutmeg cinnamon or anise would all be excellent additions. I’d be hesitant to add citrus peels unless they were completely dry. Otherwise, they might mold.
