DIY Scented Stuffed Toy

There has been a lot of hype built up around the scented stuffed toys you can buy from pricey scented product selling companies. I am not willing to pay $50 for a stuffed animal and then have to pay $10 every time I want a new scent in it. 

 The truth is you can make your own for just a few dollars and they are actually more environmentally friendly because there is no waste or production involved.  

First take your child’s favourite stuffed toy, some Velcro strips from the dollar store, some scent beads for the laundry, and an organza gift bag.

Cut a hole in the bottom of the stuffed toy and pull out some fluff. This is literally the only thing going in the trash.

Fill the organza gift bag with scent beads. There are many different ones to choose from and they all smell amazing. 

Take your Velcro strips and apply them to either side of the hole you cut in the bottom. We found ones with adhesive backs so no sewing was involved but you may need to sew some if that’s all you can find. 

Stick the bag of beads in the stuffed toys bottom and Velcro it up. It smells amazing and to make it stronger you can simply toss it in the dryer for five minutes to amp up the scent. 

The best part is when you want to change the scent all you need to do is dump the old beads into a load of laundry and switch them with different beads and can repeat for years to come!
