How to Make Bug Repellent Sticks

How to Make Bug Repellent Sticks

Last weekend, my family went on a camping trip, and it reminded me of a project that I’ve been meaning to get to for a while: turning my bug repellent bars into bug repellent sticks.

I’ve been saving our empty deodorant containers for a while, with the intention of making our own deodorant, but one day while I was storing our empties, it occurred to me that bug repellent in stick form would be genius.

I pulled out my stash of ribbons and trim, and this is the result. Pretty cute, eh?
