Can you imagine what Christmas smells like? Is it the fragrance of a real tree, the sugar cookies baking in your oven , the irresistible smell of warm cinnamon or freshly fallen snow? At this time of year, these things swirl in my head, when I walk through our perfectly decorated front door.
Yankee has Holiday candles with names like ‘Home for the Holidays’ and ‘Christmas Eve’. Crabtree & Evelyn have ‘Noel’ and ‘Gilded Chestnut’,mmmm that’s sounds interesting. Do those names scream ‘Holiday home’ to you? When I spotted this very cute project by Cindy at Starlit Studio’s on Pinterest, I decided I must endeavour to create my very own Holiday scent, exclusive to Boomdeeadda 😀
I introduce to you, my exclusive home fragrance, the essence that IS the Holiday season at Boomdeeadda, ladies and gents,
tis’…….Gnome Home ™ !!
Gnome Home ™ is a combination of Earth’s Aromatique’s, collected from around the world and purchased at a local health shop. With bits of Juniper Berry from Albania, Lavender Flowers from France, Anise Star Pods from Vietnam, Jasmine from China, Orange Peel from the USA and other wonders that shall remain hidden.
To decorate the plain tins, I selected Christmas papers in my favourite aqua and red. Then completed the tin with a multitude of coordinating ribbons, all purchased at Urban Scrapbook in Edmonton. I thought the Gnome stickers were so much fun too!
The clear lid is removable so that it can be refreshed next year. I drilled holes in the plastic lid with a power drill my daddy gave me when his only daughter left home. The paper lace around the lid was made with a Fiskars boarder punch. The lid cover was made with my Big Shot and a die cut by Memory Box
With my Holiday tin of Gnome Home ™ , I believe it’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas !
