Did I mention this is a great craft for a beginner? If you enjoy learning new fiber crafts, Meagan shows you in the step-by-step photo tutorial how to make the tassel as a final touch with your embroidery floss.
Once you have strung together the clip, wood beads, felt balls, and tassel, you can then pair this felt ball diffuser with your favorite bottle of essential oil as a gift. Your gift recipient can then add some of the oil to each felt ball and clip it onto their car’s vent, in a bathroom, or any place they would like a natural fragrance diffused. In addition, they can refresh the balls with more oil when needed.
