Making car freshies is a fun and easy project that you can do at home with just a few supplies. You’ll need some sort of mold or cookie cutter in the shape that you want your car freshie to be some sort of clay (preferably air-dry clay so that it doesn’t need to be baked) a rolling pin glaze and a paintbrush.
The first step is to roll out your clay to about 1/4 inch thickness. Then use your mold or cookie cutter to cut out the shape of your car freshie. Once you have your shape cut out use a straw or a toothpick to make a hole in the top of the freshie. This hole is important because it will allow you to thread a string through later on so that you can hang your car freshie from the rearview mirror.
After you have your shape cut out and the hole drilled it’s time to start decorating! Use paint beads glitter whatever you like to make your car freshie unique. Once you’re satisfied with your design it’s time to glaze your creation. Apply a thin layer of glaze all over the car freshie being sure to get into all the nooks and crannies. Allow the glaze to dry completely.
Once the glaze is dry thread a string through the hole at the top of the freshie and tie a knot. Your car freshie is now ready to hang! Enjoy the pleasant scent of your homemade air freshener as you drive!
