MIY - Scented Drawer Liners

Easy to make - lovely to use - wonderful to gift

Scented Drawer Liners

These Scented Drawer Liners are so easy to make and are fantastic gifts for almost everyone.  

Why not make a set for a teenagers sports sock drawer (phewww) the linen closet to scent your sheets and towels or the classic scented drawer liner for underwear, negligees and lacy bits?




  • Paper for lining drawers (choose colours and patterns to match the theme of the drawer)
  • Essential oil scent of choice - again match the scent to the situation
  • Water
  • Measuring Tape
  • Scissors
  • Iron
  • Spray Bottle


  1. Take measurements of  the base of the drawer or shelf you wish to line.
  2. Add 2cms to each dimension (e.g. if drawer is 30cm wide and 40 cm long - cut your paper 32cm wide and 42 cm long).
  3. With iron set to a low temperature turn the lining paper over onto the non patterned side  and gently iron the paper flat  to remove any wrinkles or fold marks.
  4. Fold in the edges of the paper 1 cm on each side and iron again so that the creases hold in place.
  5. Add 40 drops of your choice of essential oil/s to 50 ml of water in a spray bottle. Shake to mix.
  6. Lightly spray the back of the ironed paper and allow to dry.  Repeat if you'd like a stronger fragrance
  7. Pace paper in bottom of the drawer or shelf.

Gift Giving Idea:

Make a number of different liners with the same scent - roll up and secure with a ribbon.

Makes a lovely present!
