'Tis the season for the fragrant scent of pine. Whether you grab clippings from your yard, your Christmas tree, a wreath, or a garland, stash these sachets in a drawer to keep that holiday cheer for a few extra months.


  • Freshly fallen pine needles

  • Tartan scraps in 6-inch squares

  • Sewing machine, or needle and thread


  1. Place two squares of fabric with the fronts together.
  2. Sew three of the edges, and turn your sachet right side in.

  4. Stack a couple and tie with a satin ribbon.
