These aromatic star sachets add a little Christmas spice when dunked into a glass or two of warm red wine, filling your home with fragrant, seasonal scents.
Plus you can use them as decorations, or you could always pop them in your lingerie drawer!
You will need:
- Felt tip
- Needle, thread and string
- Pinking shears
- Cinnamon sticks
- Dried orange
- Cut out a star template from paper. Pin it to some doubled-up netting and mark around the star. Take off the template, pin the fabric together and sew inside the pen mark, leaving one edge open.
- Cut out the stars using pinking shears. Put the orange or cinnamon sticks inside and sew up the last edge.
- Sew a piece of string to the top.
Tip: We’ve made stars, but any festive shape will work. And you don’t need to use a sewing machine here — hand-stitching works just as well and is sometimes quicker and easier to do.
