Vintage Milk Bottle Turned DIY Diffuser Quickie DIY
I found a vintage milk bottle while walking through a nature preserve near my home, and I was inspired to make a diffuser.
This is the finished DIY project.
I started with the bottle, after cleaning all the dirt that had built up inside and on it. The added charm is that is a half-pint (1940s era) from Sterling Davis Dairy, which was from Wrightstown, NJ. It makes me smile that I can give a forgotten item from my home state some new life.
I have some Phlox plants that are in my front yard. It's the end of the season, so I cut off some dried stems for conducting the scented oil.
This is the scented oil I chose. They are from the local Dollar Tree. Sugar Cookie and Pumpkin Pie are very complementary.
These are the Phlox stems, after I cut them.
This is a cross-section of a stem. It acts as a straw.
It's easy to cut and arrange the stems.
The last step.... pour in the scented oils.
