ENLIVEN YOUR WORLD
At Scentsy, we’re dedicated to the art of self-expression, and that passion is reflected in our ever-evolving collection of fragrances and home décor items.
But we also know that, sometimes, it’s rewarding to create your own masterwork. And it can be so easy! Here are some ideas for gorgeous, DIY home décor projects you can perfect in an afternoon (or less):
A gorgeous bouquet of flowers is an easy, impactful way to freshen up a room, and the options are endless! Choose a large, statement-making arrangement or go with something simple and demure.
Here are some tips for making your bouquet look amazing AND last a while:
Even if you purchase your flowers from the store, cut an inch off the stems using a sharp knife. The fresh cut will help them better absorb water.
Use florist’s foam to keep your blooms in place and help them stay hydrated.
For a better display, make your bouquet about one and a half times taller than its vase and make sure the width balances the height.
Crayon art is easy, fun and packs a bright, colorful punch you can customize to work with any space!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Hot glue gun
Heat tool or hair dryer with a low blower setting
Utility knife (optional)
Here’s what to do:
Cover your work surface in newspaper or a drop cloth.
Decide which crayon colors to use. You could make a rainbow, or just use cool or warm colors — there are so many options!
Unwrap the crayons. Quick tip: Slice each wrapper with a knife and it will easily peel off.
Arrange the crayons along the top edge of your canvas according to your chosen color sequence, with the flat ends flush to the top.
Hot glue the crayons next to each other.
Apply heat on low to gently melt the crayons.
Transform a mason jar or an old glass vase into something new and spectacular without much effort. Here’s how:
Find an outdoor spot and cover it with drop cloths (old sheets work, too!).
Clean the glass inside and out with glass cleaner and a lint-free cloth.
Tape and cover the outside of the glass with paper.
Hold a can of mirror paint 10-12 inches from the surface, then spray a light coat on the inside of the jar or vase.
While the paint is still wet, spritz it with a 50/50 mixture of water and vinegar, then blot the paint with a paper towel to get that distressed look.
Repeat steps as needed to achieve your desired look.

Huh, I’ve never heard of Mirror Paint. I’m gonna have to look in to that one. Thanks for the tip! 🙂
