The lavender plant possesses many therapeutic benefits such as being calming, analgesic, and an antiseptic to name a few. The scent is so comforting, it helps you to relax and feel uplifted. It goes without saying that this aroma makes the perfect fit for a family home. In this DIY tutorial, we want to share how we made our lavender sachets. It’s easy and can be used in the house or inside the closet to keep it fresh and lovely.
Step 1: Source your lavender plant
The first step is acquiring the lavender plant, once you’ve done this, simply bunch them together and hang out to dry. It takes an estimate 2 weeks to dry.
Step 2: Harvest time
After the 2 weeks have passed, the lavender should be dry and crumbly so it will quickly break off. Simply pick them off and place in a sealable glass jar. This will ensure freshness. We preferred a glass jar for this.
Step 3: Prepping the sachets
Using a floral design craft paper, place a double layer on each other with the floral side facing the outside. We used a cup to measure the lines for the sachets as seen in this picture. With 2 semi-circles draw a straight line of 5cm to connect the lines. Once this is complete, the round ends should be about 12.5cm long and the sides at 9cm in width.
Step 4: Cutting the sachets
Cut along the measured lines using a scissor. After you’ve done that, use a paper punch to make a clean cut circle through the floral paper at the top. The hole can be about 3 or 3.5cm in width.
Step 5: Connect the edges
We used a sewing machine to stitch the fabric close.
Step 6: Fill the sachet with lavender
Use a tea bag filter and fill it with the dried lavender. After that, simply pop it into your sachet via the punched hole. You can replenish the lavender once the fragrance dissipates over time.
Step 7: All set!
This is the final result, your very own, homemade lavender sachet!
