Make a cozy, scented winter vase!

Don't put away those mini white lights yet! With a little vinyl, you can make a pretty snowflake potpourri scented vase to get you through the winter! And the best Lett'er Express It you get 12 flakes for $5+FREE SHIPPING. Oh yeah, you heard us right!

Emily over at Toad's Treasures made this is a simple project and it only costs about $4! How you ask? Lett'er Express It {vinyl snowfake}, the Dollar Store {vase}, and Walmart {mini lights and potpourri}! Its also a great gift...who wouldn't want a nice little pick-me-up to get through the rest of winter?!
Here's her simple instructions...

Put the vinyl on the vase:
Lookin' good!

Then alternate the lights and potpourri, twisting the lights around as you go...

and keep going all the way to the top of the vase:

Plug that sweet smelling vase into the wall and what a sight!
I think it would be a great addition to ANY room, but a fab nightlight for the bathroom! And the lights not only look great, but actually warm up the potpourri to help it have a stronger scent.
And speaking of smelling nice, here's one last tip. You can get these oil drops just about anywhere, but I got mine at Bath and Body works. I put a few drops on the apple cinnamon potpourri and it smells even better!

So get your snowflakes and go for it!
{Set of 12 Snowflakes} buy it now!

Oh yeah! And Happy New Year! Check back again soon...we're having another giveaway! This time Lett'er Express It will give away some vinyl designs to get you ready for Valentines Day!
