It's SUMMER TIME! For most of us, that means long, gorgeous days, sunny nights, soccer games, late night baseball, kayaking, biking, camping, bonfires, AND.... mosquitoes. Many of you have asked for a natural way to ward of the pesky insects and GIRL, can I let you in on a little secret?

I crated a natural, fabulous DIY project that you are going to L-O-V-E. No toxic pollutants to inhale and no artificial dyes. Your home will look gorgeous. The ambiance will be killer. The colors and textures? To die for. AND... the mosquitoes? Hasta La Vista, Baby!

Enjoy this great project! Have your littles help you and make sure to check in with me on social media! I'd love to see your final creations! Remember, snap a gorgeous pic and use #blossomtobefit and @blossomtobefit. I'll be on the lookout! :)
