Bathroom Air Freshener!

I know it's not a new idea but I was thinking about making fresheners to match my bathrooms and thought about these long lost little guys! Scented wax dipped toilet paper. Yep, you read that right, toilet paper. ;) They came out pretty darn nice looking and well, of course awesome smelling so I decided to share the project in the hopes that others will try them too.

These are pretty simple and fairly cost effective to make and last a super long time. Just refresh with a warm hair dryer when the scent starts to fade!
Supplies List:
Toilet Paper: I just bought the cheap ones at Target. Single, not double roll.
Any Hard Paraffin Wax. I used the IGI 1343 with 1/2 tsp. per lb. Vybar 103
1.5 oz scent per lb. of wax. For the orange I used Very Vanilla for the blue, Blueberry Muffins
Dye: I used Orange and Blue/Sky liquid candle dye.
Ribbons, bows, dried or silk florals, buttons, medallions etc.
Hot Glue/Tacky Glue (May or may not be needed. I did not need them for mine)
Candle Plate large enough for the TP roll to fit on.

Melt 1/2 lb of wax in your melting vessel, add the vybar. Once melted, weigh in the fragrance and add the dye to a pouring pot, add the melted wax and blend well. Then place the TP roll in and sort of roll it around, flip it over so both ends are saturated and wait for it to absorb all the melted wax. Place the hot roll of scented, waxed TP on a piece of wax paper and allow to cool fully.

 Once your roll of TP has fully cooled you can decorate it any way you would like. I like ribbon and flowers on mine but I've seen people use gems and buttons etc. and they have come out super cute! Just use your imagination and create your very own masterpiece! Here is the blue one finished off as well.

Happy Crafting!

P.S. Just a reminder that Bitter Creek North and South will be closed on Friday July 4, 2014 for Independence Day! Please have a safe and fun filled holiday weekend!
